Rossini's first comic opera gets lavish treatment on this release that features the supple baton work of conductor Carmine Carrisi. Ernestina (Olga Voznessenskaia) defies the wishes of her father, who'd like her to marry a rich but doltish young man. Her weapon: spreading a rumor that she's a eunuch in disguise. Meanwhile, another young suitor attempts to woo the preoccupied Ernestina by pretending to be her tutor. Hilarity and vaulting arias ensue.
