A Synopsis of Rossini's Opera, Guillaume Tell (William Tell)

By December 22, 2012

Follow me on:

Rossini wrote his last opera, Guillaume Tell in 1829, before spending the next 40 years of his life in retirement.  This opera is rarely performed today due to its length (over 4 hours) as well as its demanding arias.  Though most people are intimately familiar with the William Tell Overture, there are not so many familiar with the story of the opera.  Learn the synopsis of Rossini's Guillaume Tell.
