“Opera must make audiences weep, tremble and die”… Vincenzo Bellini said to libretto writer Carlo Pepoli. We must say this sentence has never been truer when it comes to I Puritani that the Opéra Bastille plans from September 7 to October 5, 2019. A major Bellini work, the last opera by the composer and based on historical drama by Jacques-François Ancelot and Joseph Xavier Boniface, said Saintine, Têtes rondes et cavaliers.
A work about “the love between a royalist and the daughter of a republican succumbing to madness”. A production by Laurent Pelly offering “a production à la Piranesi, as precise and incisive”. An opera in three acts performed here with its original text, far from the alternative Neapolitan version and leaving the duo Giorgio and Riccardo behind.
The occasion to discover or even rediscover one of the most striking operas of its time, but also one of the most played today, and most of all, four main roles among the most difficult ones to play in the bel canto repertoire. In other words, a great opera (despite some known inconsistencies of the libretto) for all music enthusiasts… Let’s go friends!
