Set in rural France at the time of the Crusades, Rossini's last comic opera is the saucy tale of Le Comte Ory and his pursuit of the crusaders' wives who chastely await the return of their menfolk. Andrew Davis conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in this acclaimed production recorded at Glyndebourne with the talents of French soprano Annick Masis as Adele, Belgian tenor Marc Laho as Comte Ory and Diana Montague as Isolier.
