Rossini beats Verdi by a landslide
Two days after the last La Sonnambula performance in Oviedo, Jessica Pratt took over the role of Desdemona, replacing soprano Julia Lhezneva. Pratt is a delicate Desdemona and she demonstrated her skills far and wide.
A great festival of tenors with a soprano
In this triangle of tenors, the soprano Jessica Pratt portrayed a Desdemona with crystal clean singing that reached the highest level of noble expression in the willow and prayer scene of the third act

Gioacchino Rossini

Short biography of the composer
Gioachino Antonio Rossini (29 February 1792 – 13 November 1868) was an Italian composer who wrote 39 operas as well as sacred music, chamber music, songs, and some instrumental and piano pieces. His best-known operas include the Italian comedies Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) and La Cenerentola (Cinderella), and the French-language epics Moïse et Pharaon and Guillaume Tell (William Tell). A tendency for inspired, song-like melodies is evident throughout his scores, which led to the nickname "The Italian Mozart". Until his retirement in 1829, Rossini had been the most popular opera composer in history. He is quoted as joking, "Give me the laundress' bill and I will even set that to music."
