Summary "At the centre of this hugely ironic opera ... stands the character Isabella, who uses her womanly guile to entrance no fewer than three men. As the mood swings from comic to serious, Rossini gives her free reign to explore the many facets of her femininity.... But this Italian girl in Algiers is at all times fully aware of the narrow path she treads between coquettish diversion and true love."--Notes, p. 23-24.
