First staged in Venice on May 22, 1813, it is one of the greatest contributions to the renewal of Italian opera buffa.

Disclaimer : The opera was written in 1813, a time when, in the commedia dell'arte, still alive for Rossini, irony was used as a tool to temper the issues that today converge into politically correct. So today, for inclusive and non-discriminatory reasons, with an all-modern sensibility the director has set the play in an unknown seaside location, while the protagonists, a group of outlaws, do not represent any ethnic group. The play of parts is preserved and all human foibles represented with the vitality of Rossini's music.
