Rolando Directs a New Production of I Puritani


This December, Rolando Villazón returns to Deutsche Oper am Rhein to direct Bellini’s bel canto classic, I Puritani.

Unfolding against the historical background of the English Civil War, the dramatic love triangle features Adela Zaharia (Elvira) as a young woman torn between duty and love. She is joined by Ioan Hotea (Arturo) and Jorge Espina (Riccardo). Conductor Antonino Fogliani leads the Duisburger Philharmoniker.

Performances run December 18, 20, 26, 29; January 1, 5, 11, 18, and 31.
