Rossini: William Tell

Richard Osborne compares recordings of Rossini's final opera, William Tell and makes a personal recommendation. The famous story of the skilled archer who shoots an apple from his son's head, is the basis of an epic drama of thwarted love and the political struggles of the Swiss against their Austrian oppressors.
