The transmission in streaming of the opening night of the Rossini Opera Festival, with the Cantata Giovanna d’Arco and the opera La cambiale di matrimonio, reached a record number of some 23,000 contacts: 17.224 on the Facebook page, 1.470 on the You Tube channel and 1.834 on the ROF website, while 2.767 gained access to the page on the Italiafestival website, which broadcast the performance as part of the project Estate all’italiana [An Italian Summer] promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs throughout all its network of Embassies, Consulates and Institutes of Italian Culture.

The growing number of online viewers confirms the ever faithful nature of an audience that for some years has followed the transmissions in streaming from the Festival.  In particular, during the lockdown, the Festival broadcast two cycles of transmissions: the Maratona Reims, that is the four most recent editions of Il viaggio a Reims as performed by the Accademia Rossiniana “Alberto Zedda”; the Soirées musicales, eight episodes featuring the main operas on the programme of the most recent editions of the ROF (La scala di seta, Zelmira, Sigismondo, Adelaide di Borgogna, Mosè in Egitto, Ciro in Babilonia, Matilde di Shabran and Guillaume Tell).
