On Friday 6 and Saturday 7 March, the Rossini Opera Festival will broadcast a Reims Marathon on its Facebook page: on both days at 5 pm and 9 pm we will air, in chronological order, the last four productions of Il viaggio a Reims, staged at the ROF by Emilio Sagi (costumes by Pepa Ojanguren, revived by Elisabetta Courir) and performed by the students of the Accademia Rossiniana "Alberto Zedda".
Friday 6 March: 5 pm, the 2016 production of Il viaggio a Reims of the ROF ; 9 pm, the 2017 production of Il viaggio a Reims of the ROF; Saturday 7 March: 5 pm, the 2018 production of Il viaggio a Reims of the ROF; 9 pm, the 2019 production of Il viaggio a Reims of the ROF.
The Intendant Ernesto Palacio explains "The iniziative wants to be a testimony of the fact that music is stronger than any obstacle. By reviving the Viaggio a Reims performed by the students of the Accademia Rossiniana, which is one of the flagships of the ROF, we want to reaffirm how everyday life must go on despite the fact that theaters are temporary closed. Fortunately modern technology has come to our aid”.
