Rossini Opera Festival



Rossini Opera Festival

A coffee at the Opera. A real-life musical pilgrimage in search of Gioacchino Rossini's masterpieces through 3 screenings in the Institute's auditorium accompanied by coffee and sweeties. 

Gioachino Rossini was born in Pesaro in 1792 and when still a very young man established himself as one of the leading composers of his day. At the height of his success, after he had written 39 operas, his career as a theatrical composer was brusquely interrupted. And yet it was in the second part of his life that he created two absolute masterpieces of sacred music: the Stabat mater and the Petite messe solennelle. When he died, in 1868, he designated the town of his birth sole heir to his considerable fortune. This legacy permitted the creation of the Conservatorio di Musica named after him and of the Rossini Foundation.

Each summer the Rossini Opera Festival, as one of the most important music festivals on the European scene, celebrate Rossini’s genius with a festival of his music. The ROF is the only international event entirely dedicated to Gioachino Rossini, that revives, studies and stages the composer’s musical legacy. Besides his most famous scores, the Festival has brought back into circulation a large number of forgotten Rossini operas, restoring them to fervent opera lovers.

The Italian Cultural Institute invites you to re-discover the art of Gioacchino Rossini through three screenings in the auditorium of our Institute dedicated to the composer’s musical legacy staged by the Rossini Opera Festival
