Attending the opera may not be the first thing you think of when visiting Istanbul, but opera is to be found if less well advertised than the local Bach Festival at the Ataturk Cultural Center on Taksim Square, the heart of modern Istanbul. Verdi, a born skeptic where the supernatural is concerned, did not seem to know quite what to do with the witches in Macbeth and was far too loyal to Shakespeare to reduce their role — he knew how closely the play was bound to them, famous for them.
Le Nozze di Figaro, in , was the longest and most elaborate opera buffa ever composed and though it is seldom given complete is still the longest you are likely to see in the regular repertory. Although seriously ill, Beverly Sills and Luciano Pavarotti were still very much alive when general director Anthony Freud in his second year in this position planned the 53rd season of the Houston Grand Opera. A notice for organizers: I recently made a special trip to Hamburg with one real goal in mind: For some seasons now, ENO has expressed a commitment to reinforce the role of dance within opera.
Do you remember a moment when a piece, new to you, so engaged you that you immediately wanted to know more. At this point in his career David Gockley has no need to prove himself. He did that with awesome success as general director of Houston Grand Opera for 33 years, during which he made that company a front runner both on the American and international opera scenes. There is a certain onerous responsibility in developing a new production of Carmen at a major house. Across the country from Los Angeles, the Metropolitan Opera has opened its season with big stars Netrebko, Alagna, Dessay, Giordani in juicy, melodic operas by Donizetti and Gounod.
The term rather depends on whether the artist in question was indeed a master and it might come as a surprise to learn that this little-known composer of the brief, but significant, German Baroque Opera period is regarded by many as just that. If the swift downpour that hit Pesaro, moments before the Prima of G. Name this stage piece if you can: The allegorical significance of the piece touches on a need for faith, self-discovery, and acceptance of the world around us.
Glimmerglass Opera is in a watershed year.
In an evening brimming with sublime performances, Anja Siljja took grasp of her dramatic prowess and left us breathless, yearning for more. Instead, it was dead on arrival. Haydn dined with Mr. Mozart for the last time. The legend of Orpheus and Eurydice has come down through the centuries to us, on the way inspiring some sixty-four other known operas. The first masterpiece in the history of opera. Two productions of Death in Venice within a month: Serpents, abduction, magic flutes, a sacred priesthood and, of course….
In a season that will conclude with a new production of Kismet, ENO has once again come under criticism for the number of non-operatic works on the bill. Who says an organ recital cannot be jolly good fun? Verdi's magnificent melodrama Il Trovatore may be the most masculine of his creations, but the production that San Diego Opera presented as the third opera of its season was a triumph for the ladies. A near-capacity audience, expectant and enthusiastic, streamed into the Dorothy Chandler for an old-fashioned evening of operatic glamour, as Angela Gheorghiu, with the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra in support, flew into town for a one night concert.
Speaking to a trusted chorus-member friend after this performance, I was told that I had benefited from not having seen this production when new three months ago. Just about halfway though his first season as music director of Los Angeles Opera, James Conlon has already made himself an endearing and appreciated figure. The death this month of director Stephen Pimlott could have cast a shadow over this revival of his production, but a hugely affectionate pre-show tribute by colleague Nicholas Hytner ensured that the performance only served to do great honour to the memory of a man who was clearly loved and cherished by many.
The Rosenblatt Recital Series, which presents concerts around London from artists ranging from the well-known to the brand-new, last week showcased Nicole Cabell, the glamorous year-old winner of the Cardiff Singer of the World competition. The Opera Lafayette of Washington DC has been engaged in a new project this season — the Armide Project, as the group dubbed its ambitious plan, in collaboration with the University of Maryland Opera Studio, to present two great operas set to the same celebrated Philippe Quinault libretto.
The great American opera? If the audience for new American art music seems small and is supposedly shrinking, then the audience for new American operas is even more exclusive. On a cold, wet and dark Glasgow evening in November, some brave souls received what was possibly their first taste of baroque opera. The Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro, Italy, had as many surprises on the stage inside as the weather had outside. Carmen and The Magic Flute have finally made it onto my calendar, a nice way to end the summer opera festival at Santa Fe. The news from Santa Fe Opera last week-end is good, unexpectedly so.
Here are three reviews: Tosca "is based on a play by Sardou, which was written for the famous actress Sarah Bernhardt. Here are two reviews. Barely a week later a second Glyndebourne production presented by Opera Australia opened at the Sydney Opera House with further performances in Melbourne at the State Theatre. According to Carnegie Hall: On the first of April, she gave a recital of Mahler and Schubert lieder, accompanied by Julius Drake.
Don Pasquale is generally considered one of Donizetti's greatest works. Yet, "[o]f the three Donizetti operas being performed at The Met this season, the comedy Don Pasquale has been out of the repertoire for the longest time. Here are four reviews. The East Thirteenth Street Theatre is so unprepossessing that it would be easy to miss it altogether. From the street the entrance looks like an ice cream shop more so than a theatre. The crowded foyer has chairs around little tables and a food service counter.
I cannot say he succeeded or to put it more plainly: Cav was bad and Pagliacci suffered too. Categorized as a drama, it traditionally has been performed in the oratorio style i.

Following its performance as an opera at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, this production by William Christie now appears at the Barbican in London. In this modern-dress production, punctuated by Greek references, the action takes place on a sand-covered, amphitheatre-style arena where the chorus is used as Handel originally intended, to embody the people of Trachis and comment on the action. For most of its 40 plus years the Adelaide Festival of Arts has had as its central attraction the Australian premieres of a landmark European opera like Wozzeck, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, The Fiery Angel or landmark contemporary works like Death in Venice, Nixon in China or El Nino presented within a few years of their world premieres.
Although Verdi revised it for Milan in , it took a long time for audiences to come to appreciate the sprawling drama; several years take place between the first and last scenes, and the number of coincidences in the plot stretches credulity to the limit. This early Wagnerian masterpiece signalled the composer's fascination with combining epic myths and dramatic music. Here are two reviews: On 30 January, the Collegiate Chorale presented Puccini: Bellini's Norma is the story of a love triangle involving Norma, the Druid high priestess, Pollione, the Roman proconsul and father of Norma's two children, and Adalgisa, a Druid acolyte and Pollione's new conquest whom he intends to take to Rome.
The role of Norma is generally considered one of the most difficult in opera literature. Few have succeeded in mastering it. Now Edita Gruberova, has taken on the role at the Bayerische Staatsoper. Here are three reviews. This season the Royal Opera House has recreated "Richard Eyre's popular production of Verdi's La Traviata, which draws on striking period designs by Bob Crowley to amplify the tensions and confrontations that make Violetta's predicament so tragic and her portrayal so real. The Metropolitan Opera presented Donizetti's L'Elisir d'Amore The Elixir of Love , which "tells of the peasant Nemorino who decides to take some magic elixir sold to him by a quack doctor, so that he can win the heart of a wealthy land-owner, who to spite Nemorino has announced her marriage to a sergeant.
Monday evening, November 21, , I was fortunate enough to attend a benefit recital given by Thomas Hampson in the Fox Theater in Spokane, Washington. On Tuesday, this opinion was not only reaffirmed, but it is now manifest that this lovely and elegant soprano is well on her way to becoming one of the great coloraturas of the 21st Century. Since opera began, composers have honoured, or pretended to honour, the principle that the music should serve the words, though, in reality, it is done more in the breach than the observance. First, you signed the waiver relieving the venue of any liability for your injury or death.
Then, you were handed a flashlight and felt the chill in the air — not a typical cold draft but the prickly tingle that comes with unquiet spirits nearby. Even though posterity has tended to play its influence down, many in the late 18th and early 19th centuries rated it as both a masterpiece and a major vehicle for a tragic actress. This performance revealed it to be a work of considerable power. As everyone knows, the art of the song recital is in decline.
When you and I were young Maggie, Columbia Concerts and Community Concerts regularly sent vocal and other musical artists all around America providing a never fading rainbow of wonderful music, as great classical music performers educated and thrilled us with their art.
I still have the ticket stub - and the memories. Eight years later, the opera was composed. Since it lasts only an hour and requires a highly stylised kind of performance, it has never been a favourite with regular opera houses, but it makes for excellent festival fare. The Edinburgh Festival has mounted its own production, directed by Olivier Py, which is well worth catching.
Mit h-moll in den Untergang. Der Tod sitzt bereit. Geteilte Geigen in hoechster Hoehe, triste, abfallende Phrasen. Eine Frau in fuchsrotem Brokat und mit wirrem Haar platzt rueckwaerts in das leere Raumrund. Kruemmt sich, sinkt auf eine Bank, schaut fast erleichtert Freund Hein, einem weisshaarigen Alten, ins Auge. Anna Netrebko ist da. Die Salzburger "Traviata" hat seit zwei Minuten endlich begonnen. This summer, in Provence as much as in Sussex, Rossini comes off better. Central City — Perhaps because of its home in a small, historic mining town far from the two coasts, Central City Opera has long championed American opera.
I can only dimly imagine how this singular and arresting production was first greeted at Covent Garden back in Essentially, director Graham Vick and designer Paul Brown and their team created a world, half historic, half fantastic, and one is left with a visual memory replete with starkly simple blood-red sets, kaleidoscopically coloured bizarrely shaped costumes and arrowed shafts of silver light, almost painfully reflecting from armoured breastplates.
The time is about 65 BC and the world is one of an old Asia Minor versus a rising Rome, with an ageing King Mitridate fighting off both martial and sexual invasions of his territories. All other dramatic extremes — be it fevered love declaration, jealous rage or elegant death — was conducted in an almost balletic minimalism of physical effort. It is the cold and the dark that draw seamstress Mimi together with poet Rodolfo.
Puccini died before he could finish the work, whose story comes from myth and fable. When I was young, my father said: His advice applies so well to Wagnerian opera, with its potential for diverse interpretation. The greatest works of art have the power to speak beyond restricted parameters of space and time. Experiencing Il viaggio in the theatre, however, reveals its unconventional drama about a collection of upper-crust Europeans thwarted in their plans to attend the coronation to be an essential strength.
As a consequence director Lacombe had his singers act as realistically as possible with real sword fights instead of stylised ones, no squirming on the floor etc. Apart from the visual splendour, everything was concentrated on the music and the singing. Vom Bundeskanzler bis zu Deutsch lands Feuilletonistinnen waren alle da. Denn mit Andrea Breth und Ni kolaus Harnoncourt hatten zwei Liebkinder des Kultur-Establishments erstmals gemeinsam eine Musiktheaterproduktion zu erarbeiten.
In rotbraunem Siedleranzug, nicht in umbrafarbener Federkluft, geht er dann sinnend durch die Szene. Den Applaus hatte er sich verdient. The festival offers performances every night between 5 and midnight. Director Joosten who always keeps an attentive eye on surtitles and has them changed when the sung lines are contrary to the happenings on the scene nevertheless let a reference to the Spanish Prado slip in. This small Toronto company launched its only production of the season at Harbourfront Centre on Saturday, and a scant hour later had scored its biggest artistic success ever.
The programme, Fallen Women and Virtuous Wives, is one the pair are currently touring. If Carl Maria von Weber never quite made it into the grand procession of Romantic giants, he left behind an opera of indestructible charm. The advertising campaign that started two months ago brought very good results assembling the la crema y la nata de la sociedad.

Theatrical magic and cheerful charm abound in Opera Theatre of St. Ein gesellschaftliches, aber auch ein musikalisches Ereignis der besonderen Art: Lorin Maazel has done a very bad thing. And he paid for part of the production himself. Already from the subdued opening accompanied by muted strings an underlying tension is evident in the darting figure of Puck, a spoken role assumed in this production by the actor Jason Griffin.
The movements of all the characters in this production are matched consistently to an orchestral or vocal expression, emphasizing thus the union of choreography with lyrical and declamatory effect. Soon after the start of the first of these the royal fairy couple, Oberon and Tytania, enter in formal dress. Their disagreement over a youth taken into the service of the queen, yet desired by Oberon, fuels an initial conflict that — by the time of its resolution — will bear on the fates of the other pairs of young lovers in the piece as well.
Medea de Luigi Cherubini. Yes, this Falstaff is a blowhard, a bald and broken-down knight, and a shameless moocher. Did Mozart really think Cosi Fan Tutte was a comedy? Friday will go down in the annals as one of the most spectacular opera evenings ever at the May Festival. It was one of those rare moments of music making that one feels lucky to witness, and the hall erupted in cheers for nearly 10 minutes at its conclusion.
Some of us were not even sure this was anatomically possible until the nihilistic Catalan director Calixto Bieito took up opera. In an age where youth and haste are prized, this is anachronistic: Claudio Abbado, at the age of 72, is conducting his first Magic Flute. Paradoxically, it would be hard to imagine the piece sounding fresher, more limber or agile.
Rigoletto was condemned by the governor of Venice as a deplorable, repugnant, obscene triviality. We live in more enlightened times: Two of his productions are playing this year, including this curtainraiser; it makes you wonder what is going on there. Hard on the heels of a revival at Covent Garden and a new recording for Chandos comes a second revival at Glyndebourne, which, purely in terms of conducting and playing, is well nigh exemplary.
I had a feeling that for once Verdi had lost his unbelievable magic as a tune-smith. Corsaro, Giorno di Regno, Battaglia, Alzira etc. When the irascible W. Gilbert was directing this break-through operetta, he admonished a soprano: It is only a low burlesque of the worst possible kind.
One is his obfuscated, typically Slav diction in Italian, the other the difficulty his impressive voice has in spinning exposed Mozartian line. For this superbly energised account, the Gabrieli Consort consisted of just 10 singers, divided equally into a ripieno, which provided the soloists, and a consort, which joined in for the large-scale numbers.zoetourbillondelavie.org/wp-content/123-chloroquine-diphosphate.php

The orchestra was just over twice that size. This minimalist approach produced gains in equality between voices and orchestras, and marvellous clarity in the contrapuntal writing. It also enabled McCreesh to adopt tempi that would have had a larger choir tied in knots. Hot on the heels of their marathon appearance at the Moscow Easter Festival, the artistic forces of St. True, Tatania, the fairy queen, feuds fiercely with her husband, Fairy King Oberon, over custody of a boy prince the Queen of India has given her. On Monday night at Weill Recital Hall—the lovely space upstairs at Carnegie—Sarah Connolly gave us one of the most satisfying events of the season.
Il Concentus Musicus ha dimostrato di essere non solo ottimo complesso strumentale, ma anche eccelso apparato operistico. Tre ore e mezza di musica che non conoscono cali di tensione. But it might well stand for the effect tenor Placido Domingo had on audiences Friday night at the Metropolitan Opera when he sang the title role, a new role and the st of his exceptionally long and productive career.
This strange effort was billed as a Celebratory Gala Concert: Angela Gheorghiu Sings Puccini. Just what we were meant to be celebrating was unclear. But what we got was Gheorghiu singing eight Puccini arias, plus his Salve Regina, together with a couple of encores. Ganz auf kammermusikalische Finesse hatte Philippe Jordan diesen Strauss angelegt. That may be partly the result of the transfer to a much larger auditorium, but the real problems seem more deeply rooted in the production itself. There are sopranos, and there are divas. Angela Gheorghiu is definitely one of the latter.
You know straight away from watching her stride on to the stage why this woman wins her battles with directors and conductors. However, it seemed right that Kurt Masur was there. It would be easy to say that the best thing about Il Corsaro is its brevity. Written when the composer was Paris-based and exploring new artistic directions, it suffers from a sense that he was going through the motions.
But the Teatro Carlo Felice accords Il Corsaro the respect it would any other Verdi opera, and the rewards are substantial. As Parma is also home to the National Institute of Verdi Studies, scholarly gatherings play a role, and several visiting orchestras appear.
Das war ein Ensemble! Musikalisch ganz auf Rossinis Spur. Und da sind dann noch Sergej und seine angebetete, stramm linientreue Bauarbeiterin Ljusja, auch auf der Suche nach einer Bleibe. Nearly years after its premiere at the Opera-Comique in Paris, the opera is still subject to alterations and adjustments of whatever impresario is producing the show.
The opening concert focused on Handel, whose reasons for going to Italy were professional, and whose route was unusual. German-born and trained, Handel spent four years in Italy in his early 20s, learning everything he needed to know about the Italian style, and particularly how to write Italian opera. Moving to London, he became its leading purveyor to English audiences for 30 years. What better topic than American slavery and its aftermath? Das Amt des Hausregisseurs gibt es an der Bayerischen Staatsoper offiziell nicht.
In the event, however, the Missa Solemnis would take Beethoven five years to write and would be one of the grandest and most complex works of his later years. It is also one of the hardest of all musical works to perform. When Harmonia Mundi produced a live recording of the piece, conducted by Philippe Herreweghe, there were many who felt that this was the first time they had heard a performance that had the full measure of the work.
Das Premierenpublikum folgte dieser Umdeutung bereitwillig, jubelte ihr nicht ohne die Lust der Wiedererkennung begeistert zu. With a voice at once silvery and dark, compact yet ripe with overtones, soprano Soile Isokoski is in increasing demand as a Wagner and Strauss interpreter. Once upon a time, Masked Ball might have made sense. Beinahe ist die Geschichte zu Ende. A plenitude of sweet music was in the air Saturday night at the Civic Opera House.
Vielleicht ist es das beste, was dem krausen Opernschauerdrama passieren kann: It is so full of musical insight and operatic experience that every bar seems perfectly placed, every detail of the scoring perfectly illuminated. Not the usual twins but a rather original though no less appealing combination. Both operas were cast from strength and far bigger houses would have been proud of it.
Hasmik Papian with her splendid spinto voice was a moving if less than usually placid Angelica. She once more became a princess during the confrontation with her aunt. She poured out wonderful tone during her aria ending it however with the soft ravishing high A the score demands.
Well, you cannot erase 50 years of stage experience and she brought to Zia Principessa all the necessary haughtiness and at one small moment even seemed to relent nice touch but then regained her composure. In the low register there are still some sounds reminding me of the impetuous Amneris I first saw in But higher on there is nothing that resembles that bright silvery sound of yore. Decibels there are and a wobble as well.
Still, she was not a travesty as was Rita Gorr a few years back in Antwerp who grunted the role. All other roles were sung convincingly. The performance started with another prologue than the usual Verdi one. The Minister of Culture had just announced that the Vlaamse Opera would lose its orchestra so that it could be cut into two to complete the two Flemish Symphonic Orchestras which have some empty chairs. As a token of protest the Opera Orchestra decided to play in their daily outfit, not wanting to deprive their clients and future supporters of a performance and not repeating the odious Italian way of striking.
Their action resulted in a wave of sympathy. This was only the last stage in a series of happenings that illustrate the difficulties in performing a less known opera. Looking for an escape—from reality? The Baltimore Opera Company has just the ticket. WHAT was that about working with children? In opera, embarrassment comes with the territory. What would you like this year? How about a dwarf? On April 23, the year old Bulgarian mezzo, Alexandrina Milcheva, gave a recital of a full value program at the Sofia opera, including airs from: Amid the annual parade of world-class orchestras passing through New York, a visit by the Wroclaw Philharmonic of Poland could easily have been overlooked — and to some extent it was, in a sparsely attended concert at Alice Tully Hall on Sunday afternoon.
But on Saturday evening, partly through an accident of timing, the orchestra played to a nearly full house in St. Hans Werner Henze will turn Hallmarks of their program are fresh, clear voices brought along in a sane way in appropriate repertory, with stage time given in productions directed, conducted and designed with care. There was a bit of extra drama to this production as Craig Smith, a grand figure in the Boston musical landscape, suffered a heart attack during the final days of rehearsal and David Hoose came to the rescue.
The good news is that Smith is doing well. Hoose brought the opera to the stage in fine condition. The first night of its revival, however, was a somewhat awkward affair, in which illness regrettably played its part. Lisa Saffer Lulu and Susan Parry Geschwitz were singing with apologies, after suffering from throat infections. No other city puts on a welcome quite like Paris. The musical expectations are high. Riccardo Muti, the Italian conductor, has been much in the news lately, having quit La Scala — that is an interesting story. Muti was in New York last week, for a subscription series with the Philharmonic.
On his program were two seldom-heard works, the first more seldom heard than the second: Michelle DeYoung, to seriously understate the fact, looked radiant. She was revved up to talk about her transformation from a Colorado-reared, conservative Christian teenager whose chosen life goal was to marry and have lots of children into an opera singer in demand across the United States and Europe. Her splendid program notes place the work in its historical context and recount aspects of her research.
With her brother, musicologist James Radomski, she completed a critical edition of the opera which is being published by A-R Editions, Inc. Erst ab erlebte es eine Renaissance, wurde in Stuttgart gespielt, an der Berliner Staatsoper, beim Salzburger Pfingstfestival.
Now, in a daring experiment, the Paris National Opera has invited the American video artist Bill Viola to accompany the work with his own visual commentary. The aesthetics of this new staging have been determined by a co-production deal with Madrid and Houston, rather than by any wish to explore Verdi in a modern context. The onus for making those situations come alive once again falls on Antonio Pappano. Kam da doch glatt ein Franzose ausgerechnet! My last encounter with Olga Borodina as a songstress was a particularly memorable one, and I daresay it was for her as well. In May she postponed a Carnegie Hall recital literally at the last minute, a hastily scrawled piece of paper taped over the poster out front our only greeting.
Borodina was suffering from allergies and gamely attempted to forge ahead a week later with James Levine at the piano. The afternoon was challenging, but the half-empty hall was populated by a dedicated group that admired her courage. As it happens, April is a throwback to those innocent days of musical Francophilia in New York.
The French actor and director Alain Maratrat is responsible for the staging, while his compatriot Pierre Alain Bertola created the sets. Sex, religion and real estate: Puccini selbst wird der Satz nachgesagt: Ungewohnt auch Butterflys Ende: An enormous success when first performed simultaneously in Hamburg and Cologne in , it has become one of those pieces every opera fan has heard of, yet few have seen: Musically and dramatically, it does the work proud. Alcoholism, depression and loneliness were a few of the things that killed Modest Mussorgsky in He was 42 years old.
He left behind the unfinished piano score of Khovanshchina, a vast historical opera that was, among other things, a criticism of Tsar Peter I. Mignon at OONY turned out to be a mixed experience last night. The overture began in a plodding fashion and only came intermittently alive in the conclusion based on the coloratura showpiece for Philene. Ms Queler provided almost nothing to enliven, vary or give grace and charm to these conventional passages.
For opera conductors, the Ring cycle remains the professional Everest. Humor is not a quality normally associated with Verdi. It is not a triumph of the kind that the young company enjoyed with its first-ever cycle in the s, but at least the staging is complete, with cast and production team intact, as planned. Other, more prestigious companies have achieved less. Es gab was zu feiern am Ostersonnabend in der Semperoper, und das Publikum feierte gern mit: Klar, dass sich die Staatskapelle besonders ins Zeug legte, um dem barocken Kleinod wieder Leben einzuhauchen.
Diesmal war jedoch alles anders. Solches passiert eher selten im Repertoire-Alltag. I ended last week with three very different operas here in Boston. Based loosely on a Guy de Maupassant short story Albert sends up English small town blue stockings who stage an annual May Queen pageant, finding themselves unable to find a young woman of acceptable virtue in the immediate area. Albert proceeds to use the cash part of his prize to go off on a toot, stay out all night to return home a happier, wiser and far more independent young man, to the chagrin of all.
But New Yorkers also know of him as the principal conductor of the Orchestra of St. Three of the greatest composers of art songs — Schubert, Schumann, and Hugo Wolf — also harbored operatic ambitions. All of them wrote operas and set great store by them, but none has ever gained a foothold in the repertory.
But nearly 26 years have passed since the theater last produced an operatic world premiere. Petersburg composer Leonid Desyatnikov and writer Vladimir Sorokin. For days on end, no-one knew who was in charge or what was going on. The only certainty was that the world would never be the same again. Schlecht war der erste Eindruck. Florian Leopold Gassmann must have been a gas. Everything is lampooned, from squabbling stage mammas to brainless tenors.
Knowledge and the unknowable are the keys needed to unlock the 19th-century perception of the Faust myth. The modern idea of a deal with the devil for financial or carnal supremacy is completely irrelevant, and speaks volumes about the difference between 20th-century thought and that of its antecedents.
In breaking free of the restrictions of formalism and established religion, however, the Romantics in literature incorporated some cautions of their own. The Russian landscapes of his previous operas were left behind. His subject would be Joan of Arc. Tragic romance and history would circle each other in the grand French tradition of Meyerbeer.
Interpretations have varied from austere meditations on the crucifixion to music dramas of almost tragic implacability. Rape, alcohol abuse, lesbianism and gratuitous violence: They were also the themes of the last opera he staged. And the one before. Can it be coincidence or did Mascagni, Leoncavallo, Mozart and Verdi all write operas featuring fisting? Her occasional home-coming always turns into a music event in her native Bulgaria. This time Krassimira Stoyanova appeared at the Rousse March Music days in a recital including twenty melodies and songs by opera composers: The end of the world is nigh.
Here is a splendid curiosity — a three-act operetta by Offenbach, written as the Christmas panto blockbuster for the famous Alhambra Theatre in Leicester Square and never subsequently staged in its original form. All credit to the tirelessly exploratory semi-professional University College Opera for its worthwhile revival.
Bei der Hoffnung sollte es bleiben: Nur Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus und Benedictus hat Mozart abgeschlossen, nicht alles davon ist jedoch in zweifelsfreier Form erhalten. Susan Bullock is widely regarded as the finest dramatic soprano to have emerged in the UK for some years. Handel had his troubles with sopranos as people. On the other hand, no composer has written more knowledgeably and lovingly for the soprano voice than Handel did. Forged in the same white fire of creative energy as Peter Grimes, Lucretia can remain problematic because of the apparent moralising of the framing Chorus.
But watching this play of passion in a week of Passions certainly put things into context. When opera singers reach a certain level of fame and stature, they almost invariably express the desire to present song recitals as well. Often the problem is that they have little training in this specialized art and too much practice in their own stylistic niche.
As a result, many highly publicized evenings at Carnegie or Alice Tully turn out to be woeful disappointments, proving only the lack of adaptability of many of our best singers. Here he defends his production. A lot of critics complained that it was staged too close to the orchestra. But that is not a failure — that is exactly what I wanted to do. In a Wagner opera, you have to understand that there are more than musicians; it is a big orchestra, big music.
In order that the singers can really be appreciated you have to bring the action forward, closer to the audience. If you put them too far away in the distance of the stage you hear less. The Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier is supposed to be no older than 32 — sensitive, sensual and emphatically sensible.
Richard Strauss told us so. She is seldom played that way. Over the decades, the role has become the specialty of well-upholstered divas of a certain age who stress regal pathos at the expense of erotic allure. When the titular knight goes soft, the magician Zoroastro intervenes to warn him away from the vagaries of passion. Better, he counsels, to stick to such sensible, manly stuff as vengeance, mayhem and murder: Make war, not love. To this day, many sophisticated music lovers dismiss Puccini as a panderer or even a hack. But his supreme craftsmanship is the best refutation of this position.
THE curtain rises on Black-adder-land — epicene monarch, black-clad baddie, hooped ladies and preening hero — and you think, hmm, three hours of trying to turn opera seria into comedy could be a bit wearing. Salzburg zur Osterzeit steht heuer ganz im Zeichen Benjamin Brittens.
Zumindest in der Theorie. As a seasonal concert, with a mildly ecumenical touch, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra played a concert of sacred music in the Medieval Sculpture Hall at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Sunday evening with a repeat tonight. It was preceded by string arrangements of six pieces by Salamone Rossi, a Jewish composer who worked in Mantua, Italy, around the same time as Monteverdi, and wrote Hebrew Psalm and prayer settings in a lively madrigal style. Lyric Opera has been a tease this season. Dmitri Hvorostovsky is one of the finest singers we have, whether in opera, in song, or in oratorio.
Instead of oratorio, I should say Russian liturgical music — that is one of his real strengths. We even hear Mr. Hvorostovsky in Italian popular songs. There are excellent recordings on the Bridge and Da Capo labels. Ruders has a special knack for reinventing familiar tonal harmonies and styles; he uses them sometimes to mourn lost worlds, sometimes to suggest otherworldly innocence, sometimes to convey the banality of evil.
Und verklammert wird alles durch ein immer wiederkehrendes, kurzes Motiv. With its sliding doors, clean lines and open spaces, this set, designed by Michael Yeargan, is the very picture of clarity. And for Butterfly, everything within it — her life with Pinkerton, then the memory of that life and the promise of its resumption — is entirely clear.

Lamos has emphasized that tragic delusion. Zuerst viele Jahre lang Schweigen. Immer dieselben Dinge verkaufen sich. Die Bereitschaft, sich zur gegebenen Zeit mit anderem als den Bach-Passionen auseinander zu setzen, ist enden wollend. HOW refreshing, you think, as Les Arts Florissants bounds on stage, to see an early-music combo whose contracts appear to contain no clauses forbidding visits to hairdresser, shoe-shop and dressing-table, no injunctions to wear nothing but sacking and zit cream. How delightful, how French.
