About the opera Matilde di Shabran

Matilde di Shabran (1821), ossia Bellezza, e cuor di ferro (Matilde of Shabran, or Beauty and Heart of Iron), is a melodramma giocoso in two acts by Gioachino Rossini to a libretto by Jacopo Ferretti after François-Benoît Hoffman's libretto for Méhul's Euphrosine (1790, Paris) and J. M. Boutet de Monvel's play Mathilde. The opera was first performed in Rome at the Teatro Apollo, 24 February 1821 conducted by the violinist Niccolo Paganini. The premiere was followed by a street brawl "between Rossini's admirers and his detractors"
After the mixed reception, performances continued at the Apollo until the end of the season, and it "went the rounds of other Italian cities. The opera appears to be have been popular, with presentations in Europe (London on 3 July 1823) and New York (10 February 1834), but, apart from an 1892 staging in Florence, it was not staged again until 1974 in Genoa."
