Opera

Il viaggio a Reims / The Journey to Reims

Gioachino Rossini

Dramma giocoso in one act Libretto by Giuseppe Luigi Balochi Performed in Italian with German and English supertitles


In 1825 a group of nobles travelling from all over Europe to the coronation of Charles X of France are stranded in a luxury hotel near Reims for lack of horses. Soon the guests are embroiled in love affairs, intrigues, secret intentions and jealous passions. But in the end, all parties make their peace at a joint banquet. Rossini’s musically colourful and highly virtuosic satire brings together Europe’s political forces of the first half of the 19th century, ostensibly in the harmless story of events at one hotel.
