The exhibition, promoted by IBC Emilia-Romagna in cooperation with Fondazione Teatro Comunale di Ferrara, Associazione Ferrara Musica and Museo della Musica and curated by Giuseppina Benassati and Roberta Cristofori, features a selection of photographs by Marco Caselli Nirmal during the setup and performances of “Il viaggio a Reims”, held in 1992 at the Ferrara Municipal Theatre under the supervision of Claudio Abbado, the direction of Luca Ronconi and the set by Gae Aulenti.

Next to Gae Aulenti’s sketches, the photos document the complex process involved in putting the show togetherbut also illustrate the daily work behind the “theatre machine”.

The photos portray Abbado,Ronconi e Aulenti together with the stagehands, orchestra and a cast that included great artists such as Cecilia Gasdia, Ruggero Raimondi, Carlos Chausson, Lucia Valentini Terrani, Enzo Dara, Lucio Gallo and even Placido Domingo.
