From Lowell House Opera

Known for his many dynamic characters who stand up to men behaving badly, Rossini set his sights in Le Comte Ory on the sexual antics of the medieval French nobility. His captivating and challenging score pairs astonishing vocal virtuosity with a 19th century feminist flair. When the licentious Count Ory dons disguises to seduce a lonely Countess, outrageous hijinks ensue to keep him (and his chorus of knightly drinking buddies) at bay.
