The fifth edition of Il viaggetto a Reims [A little trip to Reims], an integrated operatic game for children, will be held in the Sala della Repubblica of the Teatro Rossini on Saturday 12th, Monday 14th and Wednesday 16thAugust at 10.00 a.m. This has been organized by Elisabetta Tamburello, Massimo Buonanno, Lorenzo Piscopiello and Marco Roveti. A limited number of applications for children between the ages of 6 and 10 will be considered. For information: 346.4947469.
This activity consists of a musical and theatrical Laboratory, allowing children to take part – in a manner suggesting a game – in the mechanisms involved in creating an opera production and to inter-act, together with their parents (who, during the event, will be watching Il viaggio a Reims in the theatre), together with whom they will listen to the First Act Finale, and later on personally take part in the closing procession inside the theatre.
This initiative completes the complex work of caring for the young that the Festival has been pursuing for years, together with the Accademia Rossiniana and Il viaggio a Reims (representing its conclusion), our courses introducing the young to opera (Crescendo per Rossini) in primary and secondary schools and at the University of Urbino, our collaborations with the Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino and the Conservatorio Rossini, and our practice of assisting young people and children to gain easy access to our productions.
