The Wild Man of the West Indies (Il furioso all’isola di San Domingo) is an extraordinary opera which vanished after initial success. Based on an episode in Don Quixote, it’s a love story of Shakespearean depth, set on a Caribbean island. A rare feast for lovers of bel canto (beautiful singing), and a rare adventure for lovers of theatre.
