Fragment from a 19th-century manuscript of ornaments for Tancredi

A must-see event for Rossini fans! 

Tancredi rifatto means "Tancredi re-made." In Rossini's day, when a composer re-mounted an opera in a new city, some new music was expected. Rossini eventually provided substitutes for both of Tancredi's arias, both of Argirio's, and one each for Amenaide, Isaura, and Roggero - as well as a completely different ending for the opera, a tragic one following Voltaire's original dénoument.  It makes a completely different opera - and a very beautiful one. Tancredi rifatto is a complete performance of the opera but with all the "re-made" pieces in place of the originals - a chance to hear Rossinian gems unknown even to most Bel Canto fans.
