When a Turk comes to Italy, the married women roll their eyes in delight, their rival lovers lose out, and the husbands rage with jealousy. These may be silly clichés, but they are the subject of this dramma buffo. The composer Gioachino Rossini plays with them – quite deliberately. He knows that he is putting archetypes of Italian comedy on stage with figures such as the exotic lady-killer Selim, the young woman Fiorilla, chained to the stove at home but adventurous, and her husband Geronio, who is ridiculous because he is much too old – and relishes the parodistic exaggeration. This is revealed by the fact that he introduces a poet into the action who is looking for subject matter for a play. Throughout, he constantly comments ironically on both the felicitous and the less successful punch lines in this simple yet ultimately sophisticated comedy. Il turco in Italia was premièred in Milan in 1813, but the clichéd attitudes towards encounters with unfamiliar cultures have not changed much at all to this day: when a Turk comes to Italy or a foreigner to Switzerland, prejudices, platitudes and misunderstandings are still not far off. Fast-paced music and arias of breakneck virtuosity guarantee the fun of buffo opera. Of course, this will only happen if it is unleashed by spirited musicians and soloists. In our revival production, Rosa Feola, well known in Zurich from many Rossini performances, will sing the role of Fiorilla, while Kyle Ketelsen is Selim, the irresistible Turk. The Italian conductor Antonino Fogliani, who rehearsed Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia with the International Opera Studio last season, will conduct the Philharmonia Zurich.
