Il viaggio a Reims
Rossini's comic opera,s his last with an Italian libretto before he transferred to Paris, was commissioned to celebrate the coronation of King Charles X in Reims in 1825. It requires 14 soloists (three sopranos, one contralto, two tenors, four baritones, and four basses). Since the opera 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. The different parts of the manuscript, assumed lost, were re-found and re-assembled in the 1970s by the musicologist Janet Johnson, with the help of music historian Philip Gossett.  The Teatro dell'Opera di Roma presents 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. 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 Euripe and at Los Angeles Opera and the Washington Opera. Mezzo-soprao performas at the Zurich Opera, Paris Opera Garnier, Amsterdam Nationale, and at the Royal Opera House London.
