A FLAUTA MÁGICA DO MET

Music Review
Amid All the Opera, Plenty of Puppets
By ALLAN KOZINN
Published: October 31, 2007
Julie Taymor’s quirky, puppet-filled production of Mozart’s “Zauberflöte” was one of the Met’s hottest properties when it was first staged and since then it has done extra duty winning over children in a cut-down version.



'Flute' Hits the Wrong Notes
The New York Sun Tue, 30 Oct 2007 9:43 PM PDT
Julie Taymor's production of Mozart's "Magic Flute" made its premiere at the Metropolitan Opera in October 2004. Since then, the company has presented it many, many times. You can't blame them: The public loves it, and the public is correct. Ms. Taymor's work is imaginative, shrewd, and delightsome. Mozart and his librettist, Herr Schikaneder, would be tickled pink. Anyway, the Met revived this ...

AIDA DO SCALA

Duas são óperas de Verdi, as quais até hoje prefiro ouvir do que ver: AIDA e IL TROVATORE. Isso porque não há gravações que consigam me satisfazer.

Em AIDA, cansam-me a grandiosidade , os exageros cênicos e de figurino, o excesso de pessoas no palco. É assim também nesta nova AIDA DO LA SCALA. Violeta urmana não me convence no papel, por outro lado impressionou-me beleza e qualidade vocal de IlDIKO KOMLOSI. Acho um desperdício Alagna com sua bela voz eter-se a fazer esse papel. A orquestra do teatro cresce, como sempre, nas mãos de Chailly. Gostaria de ver uma montagem mais "clean ", que realçasse, seus momentos mais intimistas que são os melhores. mais ou menos o que havia na montagem do MET, dos anos 1980.

Já em IL TROVATORE as dificuldades ficam por conta da necessidade quatro excelentes cantores, o que dificilmente hoje em dia se consegue. Quantas mais versões assisto, mais retorno ao vídeo de KARAJAN (VIENA), a qual oferece um quarteto de primeira.

PLETNEV ESTRÉIA NA ÓPERA

Mikhail Pletnev makes stirring opera debut at the Bolshoi
By George Loomis
Pubelishd: October 9, 2007

MOSCOW: Mikhail Pletnev, one of the finest pianists to emerge from Russia in the late 20th century, continues to surprise with his artistic priorities. As founder of the Russian National Orchestra, he has been heard far more frequently as a conductor - often a compelling one - in recent years than as a pianist. Moreover, engagements in either capacity have of late made room for opportunities to indulge his instincts as a composer. The latter development is especially curious given his ultra-conservative style, which seems to have more in common with Rimsky-Korsakov than with current compositional trends.

Tres eran tres las versiones de Beethoven para su única ópera. Ocho años y medio transcurren entre la primera, Leonore, que presentó anteayer el Real en versión de concierto, y la final, Fidelio, programada para abril con la dirección de Claudio Abbado. En la programación por ciclos temáticos del Teatro, Beethoven ocupa un lugar destacado esta temporada, pues a su vertiente operística se añaden actuaciones del pianista Maurizio Pollini, del cuarteto de Tokio y de la Mahler Chamber Orchestra, que abordan otros aspectos fundamentales de su actividad creadora. Tiene, pues, la programación de Leonore un valor cultural firme en el acceso al conocimiento de Beethoven o, siendo más modestos, en la comprensión del camino que desembocó en Fidelio.
