‘Art is art, not an imitation of nature’ says British Stage Director Graham Vick introducing his GUILLAUME TELL at Rossini Opera Festival in 2013.
Known for his experimental and revisionist staging of traditional and modern operas, Graham Vick has worked in many of the world's leading opera houses and is currently artistic director of Birmingham Opera Company. The plot of GUILLAUME TELL takes place in Switzerland, country whose people are fighting for their independence against the Austrians. In Vick’s vision, the strenuous and brave protagonist is not William Tell nor Arnold, but the people.
