Due to its sensitive revolutionary topic, "William Tell" was censored and had gone through several limited performances until allowed to be fully produced in 1856 at the “Teatro La Fenice” in Venice.
Rossini successfully produced a unique and authentic symphony, which explored human conflicts such as loving someone from a nation that oppresses, renouncing your loved one to avenge one's father's death, the glory of serving the nation, the challenges of paternal relations, all were wonderfully orchestrated resulting to a powerfully captivating performance. "William Tell" goes beyond the mere boundaries of music! Truly a remarkable work of a genius!
