Product Description

This record was posted at the time of the live broadcast in 2013, at a low resolution. Now I offer you the Mezzo Live HD broadcast in full-HD. This may not be the dream-setting of this opera [which is still heavily cut], but it still poses many points of interest and remains one of the very few videos available of the opera. I copied the presentation of the previous upload [with due thanks for the first uploader]. French subtitles, duration about 3h.

For the first time in history, goes to Venice and broadcasts an opera live from La Fenice, one of the world's greatest opera houses. The perfect opportunity for you to discover Meyerbeer's L'Africaine in a brand new production by La Fenice, directed for stage by Leo Muscato. A five-act opera composed by Giacomo Meyerbeer after Eugène Scribe's French libretto, L’Africaine has been influenced by the German harmony, the Italian melody but also showcases French features, such as the rhythm, the visual effects of the lyric tragedy and the sensational stories of the light opera L'Africaine was premiered on the 28th of April 1865, one year after the composer's death. It was staged at the Paris Opera House and was critically acclaimed, both from the audience and from the press. The final of the first act, the first part of the baritone's aria "Fille des rois", the Indian March, the tenor's aria "Pays merveilleux" could have only been composed by a great musician. Under the baton of Emmanuel Villaume – who conducted such prestigious orchestras as the Royal Philharmonic of London, the NHK Orchestra, the Chinese Orchestra (during the Olympic Games in 2008) – the orchestra of La Fenice accompanies Jessica Pratt, Veronica Simeoni and Gregory Kunde singing the parts of Inès, Sélika and Vasco de Gama. The Teatro La Fenice celebrates the 150th anniversary of Giacomo Meyerbeer's death and offers the perfect opportunity to rediscover the composer's masterpiece in Leo Muscato's spectacular staging. New production Fondazione Teatro La Fenice.
