Royal Opera House: The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöt () 10/29/2017
Roderick Williams, Janai Brugger - 3 hr. 10 mins.
photoMozart's glorious opera The Magic Flute
is brought enchantingly to life in David
McVicar's production with beautiful sets
by John Macfarlane.
Prince Tamino promises the Queen of the
Night that he will rescue her daughter Pamina
from the enchanter Sarastro. He begins his
quest, accompanied by the bird-catcher
Papageno – but all is not as it seems…
David McVicar's classic production
embraces both the seriousness and comedy
of Mozart's work. The audience is transported
to a fantastical world of dancing animals,
flying machines and dazzlingly starry skies.
The setting provides a wonderful backdrop
for Mozart's kaleidoscopic score, from the
Queen of the Night's coloratura fireworks to
Tamino and Pamina's lyrical love duets and
Papageno's hearty, folksong-like arias.
As well as being a comedy The Magic
Flute is an expression of Mozart's profound
spiritual beliefs: Enlightenment concerns with
the search for wisdom and virtue are at the
heart of this enchanting tale. The Magic Flute
was an instant success with audiences and
Mozart's supposed rival Salieri described it
as an ‘operone' – a great opera.

The Royal Opera House: Tosca (NR) 3/11/2018
- 3 hr. 0 mins.
photoJonathan Kent's production for The Royal
Opera captures the dangerous political
turbulence of Rome in 1800. The Chief of
Police, Scarpia – one of the most malevolent
villains in opera – ruthlessly pursues and
tortures enemies of the state. His dark,
demonic music contrasts with the expansive
melodies of the idealistic lovers, Tosca and
Cavaradossi, who express their passion in
sublime arias, including ‘Vissi d'arte' and ‘E
lucevan le stelle'. Giacomo Puccini's dramatic
work was a hit with audiences on its 1900
premiere and it remains one of the most
performed of all operas – with its gripping
plot and glorious music, it's easy to see why.
A candle-lit church, Scarpia's gloomy
study with its hidden torture chamber and
the false optimism of a Roman dawn: this
handsome production throws into relief the
ruthlessly taut drama, as the tension is wound
up towards a fateful conclusion. Puccini's
meticulously researched score is infused
with the same authentic detail, from distant
cannon fire during the Act I Te Deum to
tolling church bells and the sounds of a firing
squad.

The Royal Opera House: Macbeth () 6/3/2018
- 3 hr. 20 mins.
photoVerdi's life-long love affair with Shakespeare's works began with Macbeth, a play he considered to be 'one of the greatest creations of man'. With his librettist, Francesco Maria Piave, Verdi set out to create 'something out of the ordinary'. Their success is borne out in every bar of a score that sees Verdi at his most theatrical: it bristles with demonic energy. The warrior Macbeth fights on the side of the King of Scotland - but when a coven of witches prophesy that he shall become king himself, a ruthless ambition drives Macbeth and his wife to horrific acts. Murder makes Macbeth king, and intrigue and butchery are the hallmarks of his brief, doomed reign. The witches make another prediction, which also comes true: Macbeth and his lady lose their lives, and justice is restored.
