"L'italiana in Algeri, to a libretto by Angelo Anelli first set by Luigi Mosca (1808), fully shared the success of Tancredi. It is an opera buffa that moves easily among the sentimental (Lindoro's ‘Languir per una bella’), the grossly farcical (the ‘Pappataci’ trio), the patriotic (Isabella's ‘Pensa alla patria’), and the sheer lunatic (the ‘cra cra, bum bum, din din, tac tac’ of the first finale)." Philip Gossett in Grove Music Online.
