Il Viaggio a Reims
About the performance

Il Viaggio a Reims by Gioachino Rossini is an unusual example of a “topical” operatic work of the 19th century. The opera was written practically on “the topic of the day”: its characters are aiming to get to the coronation of Charles X. The whole of France had been looking forward to that event, the excitement was enormous. The pomp and ceremony of the coronation was seen as a symbol of return to the pre-revolutionary traditions of monarchy.

The coronation took place in Reims on the 28th of May 1825 but only three weeks later, on the 19th of June, the opera written by Rossini on the occasion premiered at the Théâtre-Italien in Paris. The incredibly difficult parts were intended for the best performers of the time: Giuditta Pasta, Ester Mombelli, Laure Cinti, Marco Bordogni, Domenico Donzelli and Nicolas Levasseur sparkled at the premiere.

Premiered at the Bolshoi Theatre on December 12, 2018.

Premiere of the production took place at the Dutch National Opera on January 20, 2015.

The staging is a co-production with Royal Danish Opera, Copenhagen and Opera Australia, Sidney.

Presented with one interval.

Libretto by Luigi Balocchi based on the novel "Corinne, ou L'Italie" by Germaine de Staël

Synopsis

A group of European aristocrats planning to attend Charles X’s coronation in Reims, await their departure at the Giglio d’oro (Golden Lilium).

Madama Cortese, the director of the Giglio d’oro, anxious that her guests have a good time, instructs her crew (including Maddalena, Antonio and Prudenzio, a buffoonish doctor) to treat them with great consideration.

The first guest to appear is a fashion-crazed Parisian, Contessa di Folleville, followed by her migraine-ridden maid Modestina and, shortly after, by her cousin Luigino, who arrives with bad news: her luggage has been irreparably lost in an accident. At the prospect of having nothing to wear to the coronation, Folleville first faints, then recovers her senses and bitterly laments her loss. But Modestina, much to the amusement of the onlookers, cheers her up again by miraculously producing a hat which survived the mishap.
