Another Italian farce opera typical of Rossini's comic genius, Le Comte Ory is the tale of a young Count during the Middle Ages who is bent on the pursuit of pleasure, and prepared to go to any lengths to find it! When the townsmen are called away to fight in a crusade, they leave the women of the community safely locked away in the castle of the Countess Formoutiers. Keen to take full advantage of the men's absence, the Count and his friends concoct a plan to breach the fortress- they will enter the castle in disguise as nuns. All goes well, until they are surprised by the arrival home of the crusaders, and chaos ensues. Featuring Yijie Shi as the Count and directed by Paolo Carignani, Le Comte Ory promises a night of hilarious escapades from start to finish!
