Hilarious satire of the old aristocracy with a cast of great soloists

En route to celebrate the coronation of French King Charles X, an eccentric group of aristocrats and officials arrange to spend the night at the Golden Lily spa, in the Lorraine region. Rossini’s last opera revisits the Liceu with hilarious stage direction by Emilio Sagi, who turns the opera into an ingenious performance.

A true work of genius, Il viaggio a Reims contains a stream of arias and concertante compositions (like the one written for fourteen soloists) with undeniable quality and originality, many of which Rossini “recycled” three years later for Le Comte Ory. The skilled singers, which include prestigious Rossinian performers alongside emerging young talents, are conducted by Giacomo Sagripanti, a specialist in Rossini and winner of the Young Conductor of the Year award at the 2016 International Opera Awards in London.

Approximate running time 2 hours 45 mins.
