Perfect Pesaro

Rossini Festival Magic

CC in Surrey

Dear Andrew

I really enjoyed my trip to Pesaro, and the music and singing was, for the most part, quite beautiful.  I think we all found the L'Italiana in Algieri production rather challenging, and were full of admiration for the cast who were required to perform all manner of antics as well as sing some very difficult arias. L'occasione fa il ladro was huge fun, and Guillaume Tell was wonderful.

The arrangements all worked perfectly, the hotel was fine and the seats for the operas were excellent.  The only comment I would make is that it would have been pleasant if perhaps an arrangement could have been made for the group to meet up for an informal drink at a venue near Teatro Rossini before the first opera.  In this way those of us travelling alone could have introduced ourselves.  We didn't really get chatting until the last evening!

Thank you for making all the arrangements.
