Rossini Opera Festival 2015 preliminary program

logofestivalRossiniRecent decisions of the government, inviting the drawing-up of triennial artistic projects, have led the organizers to change the order of presentation of the operas that they are planning to stage in the next few years. The 2015 Festival will offer a particularly brilliant program, opening with Damiano Michieletto’s legendary production of La gazza ladra, which won the 2007 Abbiati Prize for stage direction. Another welcome return will be that of Graham Vick, who, on the heels of his recent international successes, will stage a new version of the farsa semiseria [serio-comic one-act opera] L’inganno felice, not performed in Pesaro for 21 years. The third opera on the bill is La gazzetta, directed by Marco Carniti, in a new production that will restore the complete score as originally performed, including the lost quintet that has recently been re-discovered. Among the various performances that, as always, frame the operas, we can announce two great sacred works: the rarely heard Messa di gloria and, on the last night of the Festival, both the Rossini and the Pergolesi settings of the Stabat Mater.
