Il viaggio a Reims (The Journey to Reims) is a comic opera originally performed in three acts by Gioachino Rossini to an Italian libretto by Luigi Balocchi.
Rossini's last opera in the Italian language (all of his later works were in French) premiered under the title Le voyage à Reims, ou l'Hôtel du Lys-d'Or. It was commissioned to celebrate the coronation of French King Charles X in Rheims in 1825 and has been acclaimed as one of Rossini's finest compositions. A demanding work, it requires 14 soloists (three sopranos, one contralto, two tenors, four baritones, and four basses). At its premiere, it was sung by the greatest voices of the day. Il viaggio a Reims was first performed at the Théâtre Italien, Paris, on June 19, 1825. This 1985 recording stars Leo Nucci, Ruggero Raimindi, Samuel Ramey, Francisco Araiza and Katia Ricciarelli. Claudio Abbado conducts.
