Two Summer Festivals

This chapter presents a report on two opera festivals on which Philip Gossett worked closely during the summer of 2000: the Santa Fe Opera and the Rossini Opera Festival of Pesaro. During the summer of 2000, five nineteenth-century Italian operas were on the boards: Rossini's Ermione and Verdi's Rigoletto in Santa Fe and Rossini's Le Siège de Corinthe, La scala di seta, and La Cenerentola in Pesaro. Each festival has a particular repertory niche. There is ample room for operas to be performed in repertory. This chapter suggests some of the problems faced in bringing these works before the public. These problems are representative of those that recur in opera houses throughout the world when facing this repertory. This chapter clarifies what it means to perform Italian opera.
