Description: Dating from 1819, this is considered to be one of Rossini's finest serious operas (based on Racine's drama Andromaque). Even Rossini himself thought so, carefully preserving the score after it sank without trace after its premiere, not to be performed again until 1987 with Caballé in the title role. 2 DVDs.
