At the Opera: Voyage to Reims
Continuing its outstanding season, well-spiced with interesting and unusual work, the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma presents Rossini's comic opera, his last with an Italian libretto before he transferred to Paris. The rarely performed opera, commissioned to celebrate the coronation of King Charles X in Reims in 1825, requires 14 soloists (three sopranos, one contralto, two tenors, four baritones, and four basses). Since it was written for a specific occasion, with a plot about European aristocrats, officers - and one poetess - en route to join in the French coronation festivities, Rossini never intended it to have a life beyond the first performances. He later re-used about half of the music in Le comte Ory. A co-production with De Nationale Opera Amsterdam, performed in the original Italian with Italian and English supertitles. Conducted by Stefano Montanari, directed by Damiano Michieletto, known for his innovative productions. Notable among the first cast, Mariangela Sicilia performs in Italy's leading houses and at the Salzburg Festival, Opera National de Paris, De Nationale  Amsterdam, Wexford Festival and the Teatro Real in Madrid.  Argentine tenor Juan Francisco Gatell, who  specializes in the bel canto repertoire performs throughout Europe and at Los Angeles Opera and the Washington Opera.
