Other People's Stories-I
An Old Irish Story, told in a new way

Conducted by S. Ambler
Semiramide was the last opera Rossini wrote for Italian audiences, and for an odd reason. He wtote Semiramide with far greater care than was his habit, and the reception probably in consequence was very cold ; Rossini thereupon wiped his hands of Italian audiences and resolved to establish himself elsewhere. Opportunely he received an invitation to go to London and to write a new opera for the King s
Theatre for which he was to get £240
(he had already had £200 for Semiramtde, almost a maximum payment in those days).
