Gioacchino Rossini was the most successful composer of his time. The considerable amounts of money that his great successes (“The Barber of Seville” or “La Cenerentola - Cinderella”) brought in, he invested in a luxurious lifestyle. He paid particular attention to the kitchen.
After he had largely retired at the old age of 38, he indulged his real passion: eating and cooking. And he must have been successful too, because Parisian society was scrambling for invitations on his board.
Singers from the Munich Chamber Opera will present the most beautiful arias, duets and trios from Rossini's works with an 11-piece orchestra.
The well-known director and copywriter Dominik Wilgenbus designed the evening and told a lot about Rossini's life and work with humorous interludes, letters and eyewitness accounts.
