We recently strapped GoPro cameras to Music Director of The Royal Opera Antonio Pappano and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House as they rehearsed the iconic William Tell (Guillaume Tell) Overture. An extended version of this film will feature as part of Deloitte Ignite 2015, the month-long festival of events (mainly free) which will open the 2015/16 Season.

Rossini’s work of 1829 tells the story of the Swiss patriot who shoots an arrow that splits an apple atop his son’s head, and is famed for its overture with the galloping horse theme used in the Lone Ranger TV series.

The opera was Rossini's last, although he lived for nearly 40 more years

The Royal Opera House production of William Tell caused a bit of an uproar over some explicit content that some thought had no place in Rossini's opera, specifically one controversial scene depicting the rape of a young village woman by Gesler's soldiers. The horror of Tell having to shoot an apple off the head of his own son is vividly depicted in the opera, but the folk legend is unlikely to have the same impact for a modern audience used to seeing worse horrors on the TV every night, and if Michieletto deems it necessary to elaborate on a scene that is discreetly alluded to.

The opening night of director Damiano Michieletto’s production of Rossini’s William Tell was met with a chorus of disapproval during a scene that depicted a violent sexual assault. During the third act orchestral divertissement, Michieletto staged a scene in which soldiers forced a woman to drink champagne, molested her with a gun and stripped her. While a section of the audience appeared to boo the scene, some of them took to Twitter to voice their objections. One critic described the scene as a gang rape. ROH Guillaume Tell: Chandelier. Classic FM's music critic David Mellor said he was astounded. In 40 years of opera going at Covent Garden, never before have I heard a storm of booing during a performance," he said. This repellent, extended rape scene in Act III – while acted out to some of Rossini's prettiest ballet music – was more than many in the audience could endure.
