Under the Rainbow: Rossini's 'Tancredi'


THE HIT SINGLE: "L'aura che intorno ..."

In the first act, when Tancredi (mezzo-soprano Patricia Bardon) returns from exile, Amenaide (soprano Olga Peretyatko) is afraid he'll be killed by his enemies, and she's reluctant to embrace him. In a duet, she tells him, "The air your breath brings danger," and the two have little choice but to part, leaving Tancredi uncertain about their relationship.
