Le comte ory

by Gioachino Rossini Conducted by Codrut Birsan Directed by Corina Brenciu
Theater Three
Chicago Summer Opera
Visiting Company

At the time of the Crusades, the French lords leave their estates for the Holy Land and women are sometimes left defenseless. Thus, brave Lady Ragonde becomes the keeper of the castle of Formoutiers where the lord’s sister, beautiful Adèle, is drooping. Adventurous and sensuous Count Ory tries to seduce secluded young women with the aid of his debauchery companion Raimbaud.  Disguised as hermits, they gain the confidence of Lady Ragonde who’s looking for a devoted comforter for her mistress.
