The Embassy of Italy in Cyprus, in cooperation with the Rossini Opera Festival (ROF) and the Centre of Visual Arts and Research (CVAR) in Nicosia, is pleased to present the exhibition “The ROF through History and Memory” showcasing over 200 photos of the most beautiful choreographies of Rossini Operas staged over the course of 30 years at the famous festival held every year in the composer’s hometown of Pesaro.
The exhibition, hosted at CVAR from 5 to 20 October 2018, is held in the framework of the Rossini 150th anniversary celebrations and in the context of the 18th Italian language week in the world. The curators, Fulvia Amati and Silvano Bacciardi, who will be in Cyprus for the inauguration, have sought to capture the genius of the choreographers which, throughout the decades, have attempted to translate Rossini’s creative musical genius onto the stage, with compelling visuals/costumes and very creative interpretations.
The exhibition is open to the general public and to high school students, who will have the opportunity to learn about opera, an art that combines music, dance, speech and visual arts, and to explore the genius of Gioacchino Rossini, also with short popular extracts from his operas.
