sorry for the previous misinformation - today's edition is a critical one - they did put a stretta after
the second act duet (some music from Maometto in a sense) -
spectacular singing for the most part - sadly a lot of ambient audience noise - they interrupted the end of both the trio
and the entire opera before the music was over.
It is sad both Zedda who probably began this project and Gosset are not around to have
experienced this performance - no booing after the overture like the recent Scala La gazza ladra nor any
during the ballet as per the previous mounting of Siege - hopefully other European stations
will broadcast it soon - (the Munich Semiramide seems to be offered by some station every week)
a great musical happening for Rossini lovers.
its hard to tell about the mise en scene - performances in the Adriatic theatre sometimes
come off badly - like the recent Tell now out on dvd.
if you have an opportunity to hear this performance and like Rossini - don't pass it up.

ps - does RAI have an archive or replay for Il cartelone - some things come over much later
on RAI 8's opera only station?
