THE JOURNEY TO REIMS (ROSSINI)
The eventful journey to nowhere made by some picturesque characters to join the festivities that celebrate the crowning of King Carlos X in Reims, inspires Rossini to write his last opera buffa in Italian. After its premiere in 1825, critics hailed it as one of his best compositions.
The meeting of an outlandish group of aristocrats and officials at the luxurious spa Il Giglio d’Oro displays a series of arias and pieces of unquestionable quality and originality, including the fourteen-voice concertante at the critical point of the plot. This time, the set is a 1980s tennis court, featuring easily recognisable sports figures.
This production brings together a cast with great international projection who have all come out of Opera (e)Studio, thus commemorating its fifth anniversary. You have the chance to enjoy singers who have matured and consolidated their opera careers in the main European stages after taking part in Ópera de Tenerife, their springboard.
