The non-profit association was established in 1997 to welcome the support of opera lovers who, through their gifts, give a precious contribution to making the Rossini Opera Festival possible.
Thousands of opera lovers from all over the world – audiences like no others in their spirit, motivation and participation – are united and drawn to Pesaro by a common passion for Rossini.
The Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale of the RAI will be the new main orchestra of the Rossini Opera Festival. The OSN Rai will be bound to the ROF by a triennial partnership that will extend from 2017 into 2019.
The balance of the Rof 2016 was presented at the offices of the Regione Marche. The box office took in the absolute record sum of ticket sales and a number of audience members never before registered in the recent history.
