The last of the Incontri meetings

14 August 2014

The fourth and last of the Incontri [lecture-meetings] organized during the Festival in collaboration with the Fondazione Rossini will be held on Sunday 17th August at 11.30 a.m. in the Sala della Repubblica of the Teatro Rossini. This time the event will be really and truly a lecture-recital, concentrating on the figure of the castrato Giovanni Battista Velluti, a great opera star of his day and creator of the rôle of Arsace in Aureliano in Palmira. Will Crutchfield, editor of the critical edition and conductor of the Pesaro revival, will address the audience, assisted by Raffaella Lupinacci and by Isabel Rodríguez García and Aya Wakizono from the Accademia Rossiniana.
