    Prior to taking this course, I had a misconception that Italian was the dominant language in Opera, which I suppose that’s partly true, however when I found out this opera was originally in French I was surprised. After learning more about Rossini however, and learning that he spent a lot of time in Paris, It made more sense to me.

    This opera incorporated many great examples of the Romantic Era. i.e. peasant characters, “hymn to nature and liberty” etc. Although I am not a big opera fan, I really enjoyed this, perhaps because it reminded me of disneyland, who knows.
