It's Rossini's wildest and craziest comedy. Playboy Mustafa enslaves a group of shipwrecked tourists and gets bested by an independent young Italian woman - Isabella - who arrives to free her fiance'. Resourceful Isabella makes Mustafa a Pappataci, the secret society devoted to a life of eating, drinking and sleeping - all Mustafa's favorites! Thanks to good food, and a LOT of good Italian wine, Mustafa is sidetracked, and Isabella and her intended escape.
Sung in Italian with English supertitles. Estimated run time is 2 hour 45 minutes with one intermission.
