Lyric Opera of Chicago opens 2008-9 season with "Manon"

KWQC-TV 6 Davenport Sun, 28 Sep 2008 9:58 AM PDT

CHICAGO (AP) - The 2008-2009 season of the Lyric Opera of Chicago has opened with Jules Massenet's (MAH' suh nayz) 1884 "Manon" (MAH' nohn). The much-in-demand French soprano Natalie Dessay (deh-SAY') performed in the opening night show yesterday as the title character.

Lyric Opera of Chicago opens season with 'Manon'

KATE ALDRICH

Imagem
Magnífica mezzo! Acabei de vê-la numa produção de Don Quixote, de Massenet, para a o Novo Teatro de Ópera de Tokio (20070. Foi uma das mais lindas que vi nos últimos anos. Obra do italiano Piero Faggioni, responsável pelo cenário, iluminação e direção.
Don Quixote é vivido pelo excelente baixo Roberto Scandiuzzi
O dvd foi lançado até agora somente no Japão. Essa ópera de Massenet merece retornar ao repertório dos teatros. Se não tem a mesma abundância melódica de suas outras companheiras, apresenta momentos muitos bons. O primeiro e 3º atos são os melhores. Os dois intermediários padecem da aridez outorgada por uma música onde a presença vocal masculina é praticamente exclusiva.

Crítica Lauro Machado Coelho

O que é melhor para iniciar um concerto do que a 1812? Digam o que disserem os seus detratores, para os quais ela é o supra-sumo do kitsch, é tão grande o fervor patriótico de Tchaikóvski, nessa peça em que o Hino do Tsar põe a Marselhesa literalmente para correr, que o seu efeito é contagiante. Sobretudo quando ela é executada com todo o entusiasmo, como foi terça-feira, pela Sinfônica da Universidade de São Paulo, em seu concerto sob a regência do maestro búlgaro Emil Tabakov. Só faltaram canhões de verdade!

La grande cantante Elvira Balderi Crimi partiu .
18 de abril de 1911 a 11 de setembro de 2008

Ao entrar no palco, ela ouvia dos coristas - os mais difíceis de se conquistar -, em tom reverencial: “Oh, signorina!”, enquanto o aplauso dos músicos, o tac-tac-tac dos arcos em cima das estantes, ressoava na sala. Isso era a consagração, o grande sucesso. E ela os teve durante os 12 anos em que fez carreira como cantora.

Predestinada pelos deuses da música, poucos dias após seu nascimento, em Nápoles, no dia 18 de abril de 1911, seu querido avô paterno, Tito Balderi, fizera uma simpatia que selaria o pacto com eles, enterrara o cordão umbilical que caíra do umbigo da criança. Estava selado seu destino: “ La pupa seria una grande cantante”.

Inicialmente estudou piano no Liceu Musical durante dez anos, tirando o diploma no Conservatório San Pietro a Majella, em sua cidade natal. Aos 19 anos, já em Viterbo, cidade próxima de Roma para onde a família se mudara, prestou co…

When David Freeman electrified the British opera scene with his production of La Calisto nearly 30 years ago, Francesco Cavalli's 1651 sex-romp was put firmly on the map as a camp challenge. Freeman's singers did it on roller skates, and the image of the youthful Bonaventura Bottone whizzing seductively around lodged in the memory. The challenge has now been picked up by director David Alden and conductor Ivor Bolton, with a show that was such a hit in Munich, it's coming to Covent Garden.
