The Rossini anniversary year starts with “a masterstroke!” (Télérama).

The plot of the opera "Le Comte Ory", created by Rossini at the peak of his artistry, is a delightful fool’s game, staged at the Opéra Comique by a first-rate creative team: stage director Denis Podalydès and costume designer Christian Lacroix provide stunning visuals, whilst conductor Louis Langrée leads the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées, the Chœur Les éléments and a stellar cast of soloists. Tenor Philippe Talbot as Count Ory is in a love triangle with the Countess Adèle, sung by soprano Julie Fuchs, and her page Isolier, a breeches role in which mezzo-soprano Gaëlle Arquez shines with her “superlative technique” (Le Monde).

When Julie Fuchs first encounters Count Ory, “it is as if all the lights come back on at once.”(Télérama) Her performance elicits “more than just admiration, namely enthusiasm in the etymological sense of the word: inspired by the divine” (Le Monde).


A co-production of CLC Productions, Opéra Comique, Radio France and Mezzo with the participation of francetélévisions in cooperation with UNITEL and with the support of the CNC.
