ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

Quote from Wikipedia:

Rossini’s last opera in the Italian language (all of his later works were in French) premiered under the title Le voyage à Reims, ou l’Hôtel du Lys-d’Or. It was commissioned to celebrate the coronation of French King Charles X in Reims in 1825 and has been acclaimed as one of Rossini’s finest compositions. A demanding work, it requires 14 soloists (three sopranos, one contralto, two tenors, four baritones, and four basses). At its premiere, it was sung by the greatest voices of the day.

Since the opera was written for a specific occasion, with a plot about European aristocrats, officers – and one poetess – en route to join in the French coronation festivities that the opera itself was composed for, Rossini never intended it to have a life beyond a few performances in Paris. He later re-used about half of the music in Le comte Ory.
