Edgardo come back to Dresden Semperoper to make his debut like Libenskof from Rossini’s Il viaggio a Reims.

Il viaggio a Reims
Gioachino Rossini
Dramma giocoso in one act
Libretto by Giuseppe Luigi Balloco
Performed in Italian with German and English supertitles

In 1825 a group of nobles travelling from all over Europe to the coronation of Charles X of France are stranded in a luxury hotel near Reims for lack of horses. Soon the guests are embroiled in love affairs, intrigues, secret intentions and jealous passions. But in the end, all parties make their peace at a joint banquet. Rossini’s musically colourful and highly virtuosic satire brings together Europe’s political forces of the first half of the 19th century, ostensibly in the harmless story of events at one hotel.
