AURELIANO IN PALMIRA

Gioachino Rossini is one of the most popular Italian bel canto opera composers. Who does not know this? His best-known operas have become popular hits, such as:
Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville), L’italiana in Algeri (The Italian Woman in Algiers), La Cenerentola (Cinderella), Il turco in Italia (The Turk in Italy), La gazza ladra (“he thieving magpie), Il viaggio a Reims, (The journey to Reims) and many others. They are all an important part of the standard repertoire of international opera houses today.

Pesaro in the Marche region, not far from Bologna and the popular seaside resorts of Rimini and Cattolica, has hosted the popular Rossini Opera Festival since 1980. So how about extending your summer vacation and taking the opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful opera festivals in Italy at one of the Pesaro theaters?

Pesaro is the birthplace of Gioachino Rossini (February 29, 1792 – November 13, 1868) and was declared a ‘Creative City’ of Music by UNESCO in 2017. The Rossini Opera Festival has contributed to the rediscovery of lesser-known masterpieces by the maestro that would otherwise have been forgotten.

Take the opportunity to discover more of Rossini: his personality and his favorite food. The Marche region was formative for Italian art history. Make a detour to Urbino, where the famous Renaissance painter Raphael (Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino) was born and where important works are on display in the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche.

AURELIANO IN PALMIRA • Gioachino Rossini • from August 12th to 21th, 2023

“Aureliano in Palmira” is an opera seria in two acts by Gioachino Rossini . The libretto, written by Gaetano Rossi, is based on the life of Emperor Aurelian and his conquest of the Palmyrene Empire in the 3rd century AD. The opera was first performed at La Scala in Milan in 1813, and was one of Rossini’s early successes.

The plot revolves around the rivalry between the Emperor Aurelian and the Queen of Palmyra, Zenobia, who leads her people in revolt against Rome. Aurelian falls in love with Zenobia, and their relationship becomes complicated as political tensions escalate. The story explores themes of power, love, and loyalty, and features some of Rossini’s most dramatic and virtuosic music.

“Aureliano in Palmira” is known for its challenging vocal writing and elaborate ensembles, including a famous trio for the three principal characters. The opera was revised and restaged several times during Rossini’s lifetime, with different endings and arias, reflecting the composer’s willingness to experiment with his works.

Although “Aureliano in Palmira” is not as well-known as some of Rossini’s other operas, it is still performed today and has been praised for its innovative use of orchestration, its emotional depth, and its compelling characters.
