There are a considerable number of stratospheric notes which Dubois flings out without turning a hair. The libretto is efficient, Venetians Caterina and Gerard are in love but the evil Mocenigo representative of the Venetian Council of Ten forces Caterina to reject Gerard so she can become Queen of Cyprus. This is on a par with most Verdi. When he has left Mocenigo reemerges and seizes Catarina to take her to Cyprus. For his second grand opera Halevy turned to a libretto by Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges based around an invented story about Caterina Cornaro, Queen of Cyprus a subject also treated in Donizetti's opera based on St Georges' libretto. Her enunciation seems better than on some earlier releases, though she still does not colour the text with real point or imagination or respond fully to the emotional character of the music.
Thereafter their lives are intertwined. As the villain of the piece, Mocenigo is woefully underdeveloped, we have to take much for granted. There are a considerable number of stratospheric notes which Dubois flings out without turning a hair. Act 5[ edit ] Two years later.
Even the opening of the opera is unusual, no chorus to set the scene, just the heroine in recitative echoed by the tenor's couplets off stage. Sung originally by Rosine Stoltz, the mezzo-soprano reigning diva of the Paris Opera. Act 2[ edit ] Catarina's chamber in the Cornaro palace. There is no ballet as the excellent notes make clear, ballets were not quite as imperative as it might have seemed. After two second-place attempts, he won the Prix de Rome in his cantata subject was Herminie. He hopes she may be happy with him.

La Juive is one of the grandest of grand operaswith major choruses, a spectacular procession in Act I and impressive celebrations in Act III.
Similarly, in Fromental Halevy's first grand opera, La Juive, part of the focus is on the relationship between Eleazar and his daughter Rachel, and on the impossibility of her relationship as she is a Jew with a Christian man. The two men swear eternal brotherhood, and praise their country.
Dossier de presse parisienne Mocenigo however announces the decision of the Council of Ten to marry her to the King of Cyprus; otherwise Andrea faces execution.
Her enunciation seems better than on some earlier releases, though she still does not colour the text with real point or imagination or respond fully to the emotional character of the music. Thus, it calls for an investigation of the depiction of women from history in nineteenth-century French opera in relation to contemporaneous historiographical traditions.
Dossier de presse parisienne ed. This new recording from Palazzetto Bru Zane is based on the first performances of the opera for years. Wagner thought it the most sublime piece in the score. The opera is relatively compact, just a little more than 2 hours 30 minutes of music.
The highlight of the act is the finale, where Andrea forbids the wedding. I flew to the other side of the world to hear the first performance in more than a century.
La reine de Chypre is unusual, though, in a number of ways. The same year he became professor of harmony and accompaniment at the Conservatoire de Paris, where he was professor of counterpoint and fugue in and of composition in Musically it is beautifully constructed, so there is much to enjoy, though the plot mechanics are rather clunky, and having kept Caterina and Gerard apart for the whole opera and then her husband dying, the piece ends not with a glorious reconciliation or poignant tragedy but with a hymn to the Cypriot victory over Venice.
He is excellent, having a very high tenor voice with a bright timbre which has considerable heroic heft and not a hint of strain or spread. The Royal Opera gave a concert performance of it in the Barbican in September This is one of the finest issues in the series and I can heartily recommend it for the quality of both the work and performance.
The rather unconvincing plot is, as usual, something of a handicap, but musically here is a piece which deserves to have a place in the repertoire.
Mahler admired it greatly, stating: "I am absolutely overwhelmed by this wonderful, majestic work. Access options available:. Both singers seem admirably suited to their roles, and both sing with a style which is essential to recreating the forgotten operas of this era.
The recording, made live, is based on a new edition which has attempted to rationalise the various and differing sources for the opera which had not been performed for years. There is no ballet as the excellent notes make clear, ballets were not quite as imperative as it might have seemed. But which seems a less compelling backdrop for a plot nowadays.
He makes a good solid sound and puts the text over well. Although Venetian herself, Catarina refused to bow to the wishes of the Venetian government and defended the independence of her newly adopted homeland against a naval armada commanded by the Venetian admiral Pietro Mocenigo.
My thoughts at the time: A rediscovery! It is a beautiful recording of a lost masterpiece. The name Fromental meaning 'oat grass'by which he was generally known, reflects his birth on the day dedicated to that plant: 7 Prairial in the French Revolutionary calendar which was still operative at that time.
The Council of Ten have other ideas, however, and order Andrea to break off the engagement, and give Catarina to Jacques de Lusignan, king of Cyprus.Jul 24, · Veronique Gens, Cyrille Dubois, Etienne Dupuis, Eric Huchet, Christophoros Stamboglis, Fromental Halevy, Herve Niquet, Flemish Radio Choir, Orchestre de chambre de Paris - Halevy: La Reine de Chypre - sylvaindez.com Music/5(3).
