Rossini wrote L'equivoco stravagante ('The Curious Misunderstanding'), his first full-length opera, when he was only 19 years old. As it's title suggests, the plot of this dramma giocoso offers a panoply of absurdist stagecraft with one character being led to believe that the work's heroine is in fact a castrato trying to avoid military service. Full of his trademark buffo humor, melodious and musically buoyant, the opera ran foul of the censors and was swiftly banned, which accounts for it's rarity in performances and recordings. The new edition of the score used in this production corrects numerous previous errors.
