Demetrio e Polibio was Rossini's very first opera. Written when he was a teenager, it premiered in Rome in 1812 and revived at the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro in 2010. Young stage director Davide Livermore, heading a production of the Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino, turns the libretto into a ghost story, setting the action at night, behind the stage of an opera house. Thanks to various "phantasmagorical" tricks, Livermore creates an enchanting atmosphere that is musically rendered by the Orchestra Sinfonica Rossini under Corrado Rovaris. Each giving outstanding performances are the four young soloists Maria Jose Moreno, Victoria Zaytseva, Yijie Shi and Mirco Palazzi, "stars of the highest international order" (Suddeutsche Zeitung).
