Rossini’s Guillaume Tell is a French “grand” opera, meaning there is a surfeit of ballet and spectacle, and there is a sentimentalism that is not at all Rossini. Rossini’s Parisian divertissements became quite real representations of repression. This is Rossini’s original (and preferred) version. It contains also themes that Rossini will reuse later on.
