Il Turco in Italia, Glyndebourne, May 2021

This charming Rossini opera deals with a writer who finds the characters for a story, and helps them interact with one another to create a happy ending. Glyndebourne’s new production by Mariame Clément is far too complex in Act I, as the writer’s notes and drafts keep appearing on the back of the stage, to say nothing of surtitles at the front. My review in The Article.
