Opera Explained: FALSTAFF

Opera Explained: FALSTAFF (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

Verdi's Falstaff repays careful study with real pleasure. It is opera's happiest irony that the great Italian master should cap a career - distinguished for its blood-and-thunder tragic masterpieces - with the greatest comic opera in the Italian repertory. The genius of Shakespeare is harnessed (in a miracle of compression) by master-librettist Boito to give the eighty-year-old Verdi a wonderful...   [click here for more]

Opera Explained: FIDELIO

Opera Explained: FIDELIO (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

Fidelio is a work like no other. Beethoven's only opera is about the joy of married love - by a man who never knew that pleasure. Feelings the artist could not experience but could express find their noblest manifestation in music of overwhelming power and majesty....   [click here for more]

Opera Explained: IL TROVATORE

Opera Explained: IL TROVATORE (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

Il trovatore is such a great work that it has been ruthlessly parodied. It is a tale of murder and mayhem, burned babies, roasted hags, would-be nuns, strolling minstrels and bad baritones. And indeed the libretto does call for a willing suspension of disbelief. The reward is in the music, a score as prodigally melodic as only the mature Verdi could write: the 'Anvil' Chorus, the 'Miserere' scene,...   [click here for more]

Opera Explained: L'ELISIR D'AMORE

Opera Explained: L'ELISIR D'AMORE (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

L'elisir d'amore, or The Elixir of Love, has remained popular for almost two centuries because of a touching tale and a galaxy of comic characters adapted from the traditional commedia dell' arte. Above all, Donizetti poured into the score all the warmth and tenderness of the Italian temperament. His melodic invention never ceases to amaze and charm whether in the jolly rustic choruses, exhilarating...   [click here for more]

Opera Explained: LA BOHEME

Opera Explained: LA BOHEME (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

La Bohème virtually defines the term 'romantic'. The poignant story of Mimì and Rodolfo is told in music of such tender beauty, allied, as always, to Puccini's intuition of what works in the theatre, resulting in an opera that readily appeals to our emotions and senses....   [click here for more]

Opera Explained: LA TRAVIATA

Opera Explained: LA TRAVIATA (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

This hour-long CD with plentiful musical extracts aims at a listenership keen to get to grips with the work but perhaps not sure where to start. It's neatly and effectively done, and entirely satisfies a need for an intelligent spoken introduction to the piece as opposed to a written one. OPERA NOW...   [click here for more]

Opera Explained: MADAMA BUTTERFLY

Opera Explained: MADAMA BUTTERFLY (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

Madama Butterfly really does run the gamut of operatic emotion. The fate of Madama Butterfly - married to an American sailor and then abandoned - engages our emotions, as it obviously did Puccini's, to a degree equalled by few other opera heroines. The oriental setting and the exquisite orchestral and choral writings are treasured bonuses....   [click here for more]

Opera Explained: PAGLIACCI

Opera Explained: PAGLIACCI (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

Pagliacci may be the most completely short opera in the repertory and owes much of its impact to a brilliant story based, it is said, on true life and told through the device of a play-within-a-play. The action is set in Calabria in the deep south of Italy where the jealousies and illicit passions of atroupe of strolling actors precisely intersect with the play they are performing- to both touching...   [click here for more]

Opera Explained: PELLEAS ET MELISANDE

Opera Explained: PELLEAS ET MELISANDE (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

Rigoletto is simply wonderful entertainment. It is uncanny to listen to the opening ten minutes or so and recognise a dozen superb tunes. It is also much more - a daring (for its time) attack on aristocratic privilege, a tender love story, and an impassioned appeal on behalf of the disadvantaged, all set to music of such wealth and beauty that, with its sister operas La traviata and Il trovatore,...   [click here for more]

Opera Explained: RIGOLETTO (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

Anyone contemplating a visit to the opera could do worse than listen to Thomson Smillie's 'An Introduction to…' series. The plot of Verdi's Rigoletto is outlined with examples from Naxos' complete recording together with a background commentary on its history, censors, critics and the musical techniques. Smillie's text is clearly and succinctly delivered by actor David Timson. NORTHERN...   [click here for more]

Opera Explained: TANCREDI

Opera Explained: TANCREDI (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

Rossini's comic operas, like The Barber of Seville, are better known than his tragedies though he wrote in fact many more tragedies than comedies. One of them, his last, William Tell, is actually credited with launching the whole age of Grand Opéra. Tancredi is an early work - indeed his first smash hit - and it established his international fame. It has all the youthful verve of the comedies...   [click here for more]

Opera Explained: THE BARBER OF SEVILLE

Opera Explained: THE BARBER OF SEVILLE (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

The Barber of Seville is Rossini's most popular opera. Its effervescent overture presents a perfect platform for the amusing plot in which the barber, Figaro, stage-manages a romance between Count Almaviva and Rosina and puts to flight the old suitor, Dr. Bartolo. In this introduction, we explore the facets of this opera that make it a favorite for everyone from opera houses and symphonies to...   [click here for more]
