Rossini Opera Festival

The Rossini Opera Festival is the opera festival held in August of each year in Pesaro, the birthplace of the opera composer Gioachino Rossini.

The Rossini Opera Festival was instituted in 1980 by the town council of Pesaro with the intention of backing up and developing, by means of theatrical performances, the scientific work of the Rossini Foundation: this has given birth to a unique multi-disciplinary workshop of applied musicology, aiming at the revival of all Rossini's lesser-known works through musicological research, theatrical performance and publication.
