Soprano Amelia Berry 

The Overture is hugely popular, but the opera it precedes itself is very infrequently heard. A shame, as William Tell crowned Rossini’s hectically brief career; he wrote an amazing thirty-nine operas in nineteen years. Graham Abbott unpacks the overture and, as a bonus, some music from the opera

The Metlifecare Unwrap the Music series takes you ‘behind the scenes’ of some of the world’s greatest works to discover what makes them so special. Astonishingly knowledgeable and passionate about music, conductor and presenter Graham Abbott presents a series of concerts that both entertain and enlighten. Listen, laugh, learn and most importantly – enjoy!
