  • The Mikhailovsky Theatre - “Pagliacci” (Opera in one act with a prologue music by Ruggero Leoncavallo)

Running time: 1 hour 50 minutes

Pagliacci is staged by the renowned stage director Liliana Cavani, who has already staged Cavalleria rusticana at the Mikhailovsky Theatre. She cooperates with the brilliant team of Dante Ferretti and Gabriella Pescucci. The secret of the world success of Pagliacci is a combination of simplicity of the plot and great music. The movable feast of the itinerant artists ends in a sad way: husband kills his wife and her lover. And the audience is not quite sure till the very end if the tragedy is only theatrical or not.

Nacho Duato has staged the ballet before, but now he is preparing a completely new production

Victorien Sardou’s drama La Tosca was created for the great actress Sarah Bernhardt. Puccini saw Sardou’s play when it was touring Italy in 1889 and, after some vacillation, obtained the rights to turn the work into an opera six years later. Turning the wordy French play into a succinct Italian opera took four years, during which the composer repeatedly argued with his librettists and publisher. The work is a melodramatic piece set in Rome in June 1800, with the Kingdom of Naples’s control of Rome threatened by Napoleon’s invasion of Italy. It contains depictions of torture, murder and suicide, yet also includes some of Puccini’s best-known lyrical arias, and has inspired memorable performances from many of opera’s leading singers. The dramatic force of Tosca and its characters continues to fascinate both performers and audiences, and the work remains one of the most frequently performed operas. At the Mikhailovsky Theatre one can hear the best soloists of the house.

Talk - go out, meet again. And somehow suddenly to Grigory comes a cherished dream – crazy and fantastic. Dreaming over a map of Brazil on a fantasy ancestor Don Pedro, one can believe that everything is different: walking in the white pants in Rio de Janeiro, and you - only taller and a kind of noble soul. Change of place as a metaphor for the changes themselves.

This was a performance of the highest standards, not least from the corps of Wilis, the souls of jilted brides dancing as one with impeccable style; such cohesion and engagement are rare indeed. At its heart was guest principal Denis Matvienko’s Albrecht and the Mikhailovsky’s own Irina Perren. Matvienko’s mastery of the role’s technical demands is complete — the solos are carved with assured nobility — but it is both his strong, solicitous partnering of Giselle and his detailed portrayal of the penitent cad that make the greatest mark. His Albrecht initially repels us with his clear desire to possess Giselle — no lovelorn youth he — but his gradual realisation that his desires run deeper is carefully etched, his remorse at her graveside in Act II keenly felt. A notable portrayal.

 

Perren dances Giselle in a state of grace. Her Act I peasant girl is dangerously naïve, her happiness at Albrecht’s protestations or the receipt of Bertha’s necklace so great one fears her heart will burst — as it must with her wrenchingly portrayed madness induced by his treachery. The shadow of betrayal plunges her world into darkness and leads the way to her grave. It is the transformation from the endearingly simple soul of Act I to the sorrow-laden wraith of Act II that Perren achieves so totally. Her technique serves her artistry completely, with balances held not for show but in defiance of the gravity of the mortal world. An extraordinary achievement.

La bohème is based on Henri Murger's novel, - “Scènes de la vie de bohème”, a collection of vignettes portraying young bohemians living in the Latin Quarter of Paris in the 1840s. Although usually called a novel, it has no unified plot. The opera's libretto focuses on the relationship between Rodolfo and Mimì, ending with her death. Also like the play, the libretto combines two characters from the novel, Mimì and Francine, into a single Mimì character.
