Mozart's 'Zaide' with Reiss, Gatell, Werba and Nilon from Rome
Mozart's 'Zaide' is an unfinished German-language opera. Zaide falls in love with Gomatz, a slave, which strikes up jealousy and rage in the Sultan, who happens to also admire her. After capture she chooses a free life with Gomatz rather than a good life with the Sultan. Allazim encourages the sultan to consider Gomatz as a man, not as a slave. The final surviving quartet suggests Zaide and Gomatz are sentenced to punishment or execution. This is where Mozart's manuscript breaks off. Performers:
Zaide: Chen Reiss.
Gomatz: Juan Francisco Gatell.
Allazim: Markus Werba.
Soliman: Paul Nilon.
Osmin: Davide Giangregorio.
First slave:, Raffaele Feo.
Second slave: Luca Cervoni.
Third slave: Domingo Pellicola.
Fourth slave: Rodrigo Ortiz.
