LA HIJA DE RAPACCINI PDF

But a lot of memory and file searching, not to mention head-scratching, produced no contradictory evidence. Another barrier broken at last. That, alas, would stretch generosity a bit beyond veracity. It may not abound in passionate revelation or lofty inspiration, but it is a serious, often compelling piece--intelligently crafted and sensitively staged. It speaks a sophisticated musical language with elegance.

The actor, who was both connoisseur and also the deliriously over-the-top investigator of evil as the mad Dr. I like the image of the Master of Menace, as Price was dubbed, wandering among the manicured horticulture that oil baron Edward L. Doheny was once able to cultivate thanks to his exploiting local and Mexican markets. The story is of an Italian scientist, Rappaccini, and his most extravagant bloom, his lovely daughter Beatrice, raised on poison and now herself lethal.

A young medical student arrives in medieval Padua and falls in love with her, but to touch her is to die. The orchestra is a field of ravishing exotica, which alludes to the sinuous call of the Japanese flute and the glamorous clangor of the gamelan.

Some but not all of that came through at Greystone. Especially harp. A bed was the main prop. Amplification at Greystone proved relatively crude, and the instrumental ensemble and conductor Neal Goren were a considerable distance from the stage.

Balances sounded artificial, as though they were whatever a sound designer wanted them to be. Still, much of what makes this opera remarkable managed to come through. However much sweetness and color orchestration loses in the clangorous chamber version, marvelous percussive effects create a different kind of exoticism, such as the harp glissandi contrasting with glissandi of strummed strings inside the piano.

The opera revolves mainly around the physical and psychological dissolution of Giovanni, the medical student whose idealism is threatened by his impossible attraction to Beatriz, as she is called in Spanish.

Tenor Daniel Montenegro fell apart convincingly and lustfully. Soprano Elaine Alvarez offered a Beatriz more regal than hothouse but able to soar. Ariana Wyatt, Cassandra Zoe Velasco and Nora Graham-Smith, the tamely enticing voices of the flowers, were also their personifications, slinking around Giovanni.

Site-specific opera is all the rage, and simply sitting outdoors in a beautiful late afternoon overcast light while a rare summer rain threatened created a sure sense of operatic occasion.
