This opera-in-concert presentation is Rossini’s enthralling French-language setting – replete with romance, intrigue, jealousy, vengeance, and supernatural acts of God – of Moses and his brother Eliezer leading the Jews out of the land of Pharaoh and into freedom, with the help of plagues and the parting of the Red Sea. The story is impassioned and the music is gorgeous.
