Il Viaggio a Reims
Opera by Gioacchino Rossini/ Production with singers from the KONSuni

* abgespielt

Music by Gioacchino Rossini
Libretto by Giuseppe Luigi Balocchi

In recent years, opera houses around the globe have been rediscovering this
interesting rarity by Gioacchino Rossini. It is being performed by students of the Master’s course in Opera at Konservatorium Wien University (KONSuni) as their major annual production for the year. Fifteen extremely diverse and glamorous characters meet at a hotel in a spa resort. Confusion and bewilderment reign as they pursue romantic adventures, worship the arts and even grieve over a lost wardrobe. The appeal of this turbulent piece lies in its combination of the banal and the profound, its exciting, deftly drawn characters and its magnificent ensembles.

An extremely interesting and ambitious challenge for soloists, choir and orchestra alike, as well for everyone else involved.
