Guillaume Tell

Guillaume Tell

Following outstanding critical acclaim in Dublin, Rossini’s William Tell is performed in Switzerland as part of a co-production between Irish National Opera and Nouvel Opéra Fribourg. Five performances in Dec 2023 and Jan 2024
Irish National Opera

Rossini’s William Tell is a celebration of community, family, country, nature, nationalism, bravery and beauty. Its musical treasures unfold on a vast scale over an extended evening. Dizzying vocal challenges, glorious uplifting choruses, infectious dances and the most famous overture of all.

For these performances in 2023/2024,  a new cast has been assembled with the original creative team reuniting. The chorus of Nouvel Opéra Friboug is joined by the Orchestre de chambre fribourgeois. Sung in French.
