A first-edition score page of La Gazza Ladra and Gioachino Rossini’s signature are beautifully framed alongside an image of the composer.

La Gazza Ladra (The Thieving Magpie), a melodrama in two acts to a libretto by Giovanni Gherardini after La pie voleuse (1815) by Badouin d' Aubigny and Caigniez, was first performed in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on May 31, 1817.

Dimensions: 20½” wide x 14½” high x 1” deep

“No composer in the first half of the 19th century enjoyed the measure of prestige, wealth, popular acclaim or artistic influence that belonged to Rossini.  His contemporaries recognized him as the greatest Italian composer of his time.” -- Grove
