Marina Poplavskaya: At full throttle

IDOMENEO, DE MOZART

Imagem
Uma das sensações mais agradáveis quando se ama uma determinada peça musical (concerto, sinfonia, lied, ópera , etc) é quando nos deparamos com uma interpretação que se ajusta totalmente às nossas expectativas em relação àquela obra. Essa sensação é ainda maior quando se trata de uma preferida. É o caso de Idomeneo, de Mozart. Desde a primeira vez que a ouvi, por meio da produção de Ponnelle para o MET, foi amor à primeira vista. Conheci outras gravações em CD e em vídeo. Esta semana, tive contato com a produção de Ursel & Karl-Ernst Herrmann para Salzburgo. Trata-se de uma encenação minimalista que funciona bem, muito auxiliada com uma iluminação perfeita, eu diria. A Camerata Salzburg , sob a regência eletrizante de Sir Roger Norrington , está localizada no centro e o cenário mais utilizado para a movimentação dos cantores a circunda.
A direção dos cantores é muito boa e, supreendentemente, Ramon Vargas sabe atuar muito bem. Ponto para a direção. A Elektra de Anja Harteros é a m…

SALOMÉ, DE RICHARD STRAUSS

Salome, Royal Opera House, London


Independent Mon, 25 Feb 2008 4:43 PM PST


There was a time when a body-double was used for Salome's Dance of the Seven Veils. Now it's a case of casting a soprano who has what it takes to remove that final veil. Or is it? In David McVicar's typically uncompromising new production, Nadja Michael's lissomly girlish Salome is wearing more at the end of her dance than at the start.
