La Compagnia Rossini originate from Switzerland. They have an extensive repertoire of operatic arias from a wide variety of romantic composers such as Rossini, Bellini, Mozart, Donizetti, Verdi and others. The programs elegantly combine these with traditional folk songs from their home region, sung in their native language of Rhaeto-Romansh. Their performances are exciting, unique, vivacious and joyful and each of the members has an outstanding voice, developed with the help and support of their founder, opera singer, Armin Caduff.

Medinet Habu, Temple of a Million Years of Pharaoh Rameses III; is one of the most
