The Rai5 channel will feature the Rossini Opera Festival again, in the framework of the partnership of the Pesaro event with the Rai Televisione Italiana. On Thursday, 4 th October at 9.15 p-m., for the series in scena, the documentary Rossini 150 will be transmitted, produced by Rai Cultura and shot in Pesaro this summer by Roberto Giannarelli, who will talk about the participation of the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai in the 2018 ROF.
This valued partner, also present in Pesaro in 2017, played in Ricciardo e Zoraide and Il barbiere di Siviglia, besides the Petite messe solennelle that closed this year’s proceedings. Numerous singers, conductors, stage directors, musicians and musicologists, as well as the Festival directors, offer their contributions.
This documentary is a follow-up to the coverage that Rai5 dedicated to the ROF throughout the month of August on the occasion of the celebration of the 150th anniversary of Rossini’s death, culminating in the broadcast of Ricciardo e Zoraide on the 30th August. Furthermore, the Rai broadcast live over the radio the first nights of the three main operas on the ROF 2018 programme, as well as the Petite messe solennelle.
