d'Oustrac, Stéphanie (mezzo-soprano) - Medea’s Fury

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Exciting musical baroque variations on a myth: Médée.

Opera remained an exclusively courtly and princely genre throughout the first third of the seventeenth century, when it found in mythological subject matter the source of the supernatural, one of the cornerstones of the Baroque aesthetic. The intention was to arouse in the spectator the astonishment that, proper to tragedy, which the Florentine theorists sought to revive in a wholly sung drama. Thus the myths of Orpheus, Arion, and Daphne nourished the first ‘favole per musica’, performed in Florence and Mantua to an audienc of aristocrats and academicians, before other characters with magical powers took over from them: Armida, Alcina, and Medea.

The last-named, granddaughter of the Sun, sorceress and sister to Circe, traverses the whole history of the opera –Cherubini, of course, but also such varied incarnations as those of Handel and Mercadante, right up to Pascal Dusapin.

From the XVIIth century to the mid-XVIIIth century, the Médée’s musical myth has been a great success on stage and this very-well structured program reveals after all a character very close to us.
