La regata veneziana 'Tre canzonette'
Volume 1 of Péchés de vieillesse, ‘Album italiano’, contains three canzonettas grouped together as La regata veneziana which were first performed at one of Rossini’s celebrated soirées. Written in Venetian dialect for mezzo-soprano, each song has a different mood, and describes through the eyes of a young woman the regatta which Momolo, her lover, eventually wins. After his triumph he presents her with the red flag of victory, and she returns the gift with a kiss. The songs were probably written in 1858.
