Il Viaggio a Reims in OperaVision

Il viaggio a Reims starring the students of the Accademia Rossiniana “Alberto Zedda”, scheduled on August 13th and 15th at 11 a.m. at the Teatro Rossini, will be broadcast live streaming on the website and on the social channels of the Festival.
As part of the Next Generation project, the first performance of Il viaggio will also be broadcast on, the freeview opera streaming platform run by Opera Europa and supported by the European Union’s Creative Europe program
. The two performances of Il viaggio will be available for six months on OperaVision platform, along with a dedicated podcast and backstage video.

OperaVision believes in its role as a digital stage for emerging artists. In a new partnership with several young artists’ programs in Europe – notably at Oper Frankfurt, Palau de les Arts Valencia, Rossini Opera Festival, and Opera for Peace – OperaVision streams performances, masterclasses, and concerts held by the next generation of talents.


The third and last concert in the series Salons Rossini, three concerts featuring pupils of the Accademia Rossiniana “Alberto Zedda” 2022, sponsored by the Fondazione Meuccia Severi, in homage to the celebrated, lively musical evenings in Rossini’s own home.  The series is an absolute novelty for the ROF, springing from a desire to offer our regular audiences the opportunity to get to know the local surroundings and, at the same time, to bring Festival performances to new audiences in unusual and evocative places.
The concert Nella testa ho un campanello [I’ve got a bell ringing in my head], with arias from comic operas by Rossini, will be held on Sunday 31 July at the Teatro della Concordia, San Costanzo.  Lluis Calvet i Pey (baritone) will sing Figaro’s Cavatina “Largo al factotum” from Il barbiere di Siviglia; Paola Leguizamón (mezzosoprano) e Matteo Guerzé (baritone) will perform the Duetto Rosina-Figaro “Dunque io son … tu non m’inganni?” from Il barbiere di Siviglia; Dave Monaco (tenor) and Lluis Calvet i Pey will present the Duetto Count Almaviva-Figaro “All’idea di quel metallo” from Il barbiere di Siviglia”; Matteo Guerzé will propose Dandini’s Cavatina “Come un’ape ne’ giorni d’aprile” from La Cenerentola; Dave Monaco will sing Ramiro’s Recitativo e Aria “Principe più non sei … Sì, ritrovarla io giuro” della Cenerentola.
The accompanist at the pianoforte will be Marco Camillini.
These concerts have been sung from three highly valued stages in the Province of Pesaro and Urbino: after San Lorenzo in Campo and Gradara, it is now the turn of San Costanzo, for decades the home of theatrical comedy thanks to its historical comic festival Scenaridens.  Each concert is introduced by a short explanatory talk by the musicologist Andrea Parissi of the Fondazione Rossini.
After the concert members of the public will be able to enjoy special  refreshments based on Rossini recipes.
This initiative has been organized in collaboration with the Town Councils of San Lorenzo in Campo, Gradara and San Costanzo.  Admission is free of charge, subject to the number of seats available.  Info:
