Candeur virginale

Tancredi was Rossini's ninth opera but his first runaway success. It was immediately repeated wherever Italian opera was performed, and positioned him for a conquest that the novelist Stendhal, writing just a decade later, compared to Napoleon's. The score's verve, freshness, and sincerity - Stendhal spoke of its "virginal candor" - set the tone for the Romantic century, and made the opera a timeless classic.
