'Bellini's opera semiseria is sometimes written off as simple-minded, its tale of a village girl who sleepwalks into a compromising situation and is then rejected by her betrothed and the other villagers considered naive and eve silly. But when taken seriously, as it is in this 2013 Stuttgart production, it reveals depths that are at least partially deliberately hidden.' George Hall
