The Rossini Opera Festival and the Conservatorio Statale di Musica ‘G. Rossini’ have just signed an understanding that will strengthen the partnership between the two musical institutions, united in working towards the diffusion of Rossini’s music throughout the world, in particular among young people. For many years an active collaboration has been in existence between the two institutions, in league with the Fondazione Rossini, based above all on the exchange of holdings and resources (the use of the Auditorium and the classrooms, availability of technical and organizational structures and of theatrical materials) which have led to important and lasting advantages for the town.
The new agreement further widens possibilities of access and reciprocity of didactic experiences for students and teachers: in particular, the participation as listeners in the courses of the Accademia Rossiniana and admission to rehearsals normally not open to the public.
This approach also foresees the availability of specially priced tickets for four shows in the 2015 Festival, with the further possibility of obtaining subscription tickets. The chosen events represent a musical and artistic passage through the town’s theatrical types and venues: Concert of the Accademia Rossiniana (Teatro Sperimentale – 20 July, at 8.00 p.m.); La gazza ladra (Adriatic Arena – 10, 13, 16 or 19 August, at 8.00 p.m.); Il viaggio a Reims (Teatro Rossini – 14 or 17 August, at 11.00 a.m.); Belcanto Concerts (Auditorium Pedrotti – 16, 19, or 21 August, at 5.00 p.m.).
“From the happy collaboration of the three great Rossini institutions of Pesaro” declared Gianfranco Mariotti, General Administrator of the Rof, “emerges a strong message directed to young people, regarding the vitality, freshness and inexhaustible actuality of opera, in particular Rossini’s works.”
Ludovico Bramanti, Director of the Pesaro Conservatory, closed by saying: “The continuation and the strengthening of the already existing collaboration between the leading musical institutions of our town facilitates the prime mission of the Conservatory to form professional artists in connection with the possible sources of professional employment.”
