Find' em all!

Ladies und gentlemen, i give you the international sensation,
Herr Gioacchino Rossini!



What you see: Bootleg video from the Pesaro archives.

Il Viaggio a Reims 1992.

Cast: EVERYBODY!!

The story: The show is over, Claudio Abbado receives his ovation but the audience won't stop. Claudio goes back to his podium and the whole cast actually gives the audience a special treat as a bis: One of the most beautiful moments of Rossinian music ever, da cappo! Can you recognize the members of the cast? Some are very easy to tell, others not...Find 'em!

I spotted the following singers - Cheryl Studer, Lella Cuberli, Cecilia Gasdia, Chris Merritt, Ruggero Raimondi, and (I think) Sam Ramey and Lucia Valentini-Terrani....
I agree with you - it was a great moment of fabulous Rossini singing!

Great! There is also William Matteuzzi and somewhere in the cast you ll find young Barbara Frittoli.
