Bring me Gioachino Rossini's noodle!
This is no spaghetti western!
Criminally fun for western fans, opera aficionados, turkey hunters and more!
A composer of operas as a western hero? Mozart's librettist as a mob boss? A native American as a balloon pilot? Kurt Palm creates an enthralling mix of outrageous madness and historical detail in his story about the Wild West. Bored of society, Gioachino Rossini accepts an outlandish challenge. His uncle has left him a saloon and a piece of farmland in Missouri and neither a stormy passage over the Atlantic, nor the hardships of 1700 kilometers of travel can deter our hero. Once Indian Kamalesh, Ringgold, the escaped slave and Native American Big Thunder join his quest, Rossini and his whirlwind crew cannot be stopped!
Kurt Palm , born 1955 in Vöcklabruck, Upper Austria, completed his studies of German Philology and Journalism in Salzburg with a PhD. Since 1983, Palm has been working as a film director and author. He has written books on Bertolt Brecht, Adalbert Stifter, James Joyce, Mozart, soccer and Palm Saturdays. Shot a few films and staged numerous opera and theater productions in Austria and abroad.
