    Otello: The Rossini Option

    Though probably best known today for his comic operas, Rossini alternated between those and more serious works. Not as famous as Verdi's version, this Otello has much to offer, particularly to 'bel canto' fans. There's music for no fewer than six tenors, including both the hero (Michael Spyres) and villain (a properly oily Giorgio Trucco). Spyres brings a warm sound and wide vocal range to the title role, and cannot be mistaken for any of the other guys. Jessica Pratt as his doomed wife has plenty of singing to do, but doesn't get a proper solo till the last act. Filippo Adami's Rodrigo is uneven: best when he throws off some brilliant high notes, but inconsistent in the florid passages. (In his second-act aria, listen for what has become more famous as part of the "Cat Duet.") Some stage noises and applause might be counted as drawbacks to this live recording, but there's also the nice sense of a real-time performance, with its interactions among the cast and musicians. Libretto at the Naxos website (in Italian only!), synopsis in the booklet.
