The Art of Marius Petipa - Raymonda

The Art of Marius Petipa - Raymonda


Glazunov:

Raymonda, Op. 57

Live from Teatro alla Scala, Milan 2011


Olesia Novikova (Raymonda), Friedemann Vogel (Jean de Brienne) & Mick Zeni (Abderahman)

Corps de Ballet & Orchestra of Teatro alla Scala, Michail Jurowski

Original choreography: Marius Petipa (1898)

Choreographic revival and staging: Sergej Vikharev

This La Scala premiere marks the most faithful version of Raymonda yet to the original, which met with triumphant success in St Petersburg in 1898. Based on a medieval legend with ladies, knights, crusaders and Saracens, cathedrals and castles, the libretto had all the ingredients needed to spark the imagination of the young Alexander Glazunov in his first ballet score and the infinite wisdom of Marius Petipa, who complemented it with an enormously rich and endless succession of dances. Drawing on notation from the Harvard archives, original designs housed in the St Petersburg State Museum of Theatre and Theatre Library, La Scala presents the last great work from the glory days of the Imperial Ballet.

Boito: Mefistofele

Boito: Mefistofele


Samuel Ramey (Mefistofele), Michele Crider (Elena/Margherita), Vincenzo La Scola (Faust), Eleonora Jankovic (Martha), Ernesto Gavazzi (Wagner/Nereo), Eleonora Jankovic (Pantalis)

Orchestra e Coro del Teatro alla Scala, Riccardo Muti

Arrigo Boito, Verdi’s greatest librettist, was also a noted composer, best known for his Italian operatic treatment of Goethe’s tragedy Faust. His MEFISTOFELE is much closer in spirit and letter to the original source than Gounod’s French version of a decade or so earlier. Boito seems to have been more fascinated by Mephistopheles than by the title character (he also augmented the role of another famous villain, Iago, in adapting Shakespeare’s Othello for Verdi). There are numerous complete versions of recordings of Mefistofele on disc, but BBC Music Magazine gave its highest rating to this 1995 live recording from La Scala, conducted by Riccardo Muti: “It is Samuel Ramey who dominates this new recording. Ramey was already a splendid Mefistofele on a 1991 recording, but here he is even more in command of the role, and has the advantage of Muti’s masterly conducting. Michele Crider is an affecting Margherita and Vincenzo La Scola a mellifluous Faust.”

Poulenc: Dialogues des Carmélites

Poulenc: Dialogues des Carmélites

Live Recording from Teatro Degli Arcimboldi, Milan, 2004


Dagmar Schellenberger (Blanche), Anja Silja (Madame de Croissy), Barbara Dever (Mère Marie de l‘Incarnation), Laura Aikin (Soeur Constance de Saint-Denis) & Christopher Robertson (Le Marquis de la Force)

Teatro Alla Scala, Riccardo Muti (conductor) & Robert Carsen (director)

When Canadian opera director Robert Carsen produced his intense staging of Francis Poulenc’s compelling opera Dialogues des Carmélites in 2001, it impressed audiences and critics alike, and also gained the interest of Riccardo Muti, who arranged for the production to be staged at La Scala, Milan. Muti himself conducted Orchestra and Chorus of La Scala and a superb, handpicked cast of singers. German soprano Dagmar Schellenberger, who received much critical acclaim for her debut at La Scala, takes the role of the young aristocrat Blanche who, during the French Revolution, seeks salvation in a convent. Following a decree dissolving all the country’s religious houses, the Carmelite nuns take a vow of martyrdom and sing their way to the scaffold. The last to die is Blanche, together with Soeur Constance, sung by the American soprano Laura Aikin. The production was particularly notable for the participation of Anja Silja, one of the greatest singers of our times, as Madame de Croissy.

Mozart: Don Giovanni, K527

Mozart: Don Giovanni, K527


Peter Mattei (Don Giovanni), Bryn Terfel (Leporello), Anna Netrebko (Donna Anna), Barbara Frittoli (Donna Elvira), Kwangchoul Yun (Il Commendatore), Giuseppe Filianoti (Don Ottavio), Anna Prohaska (Zerlina), Stefan Kocan (Masetto)

Orchestra & Chorus of Teatro alla Scala, Daniel Barenboim, Robert Carsen (dir.)

An all-star cast featuring Deutsche Grammophon artist Anna Netrebko, Bryn Terfel and Anna Prohaska, delivers a sensational new recording of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, conducted by Daniel Barenboim at the start of his inaugural season as Music Director of La Scala.

Recorded live at the opening of the 2011-12 La Scala season, Don Giovanni is now set to be released in time for Bryn Terfel’s 50th birthday on 9 November 2015. It also ties in with the traditional opening of the new season at La Scala – 7 December, the feast-day of St Ambrose, patron saint of Milan.

It features stunning performances from Anna Netrebko as Donna Anna in her La Scala debut, Peter Mattei as a swaggering Don Giovanni, Bryn Terfel as his sidekick Leporello and Anna Prohaska as Zerlina. Anna Netrebko made her international breakthrough at the 2002 Salzburg Festival as Donna Anna, among the most powerful and moving of all soprano roles. “Netrebko’s Donna Anna was thrilling in her nobility and ease of execution,” noted the Observer (London) following her La Scala debut. “She is on grand form.” The New York Times, meanwhile, hailed her “compelling portrayal”. Director Robert Carsen’s staging of Don Giovanni opens by turning a distorting mirror on the performers, the audience and the theatre itself, in what the Observer called “a fabulous visual coup”.
