Music Director of The Royal Opera Antonio Pappano explores the score of Puccini's Madama Butterfly with the help of soprano Ermonela Jaho. Find out more at http://www.roh.org.uk/butterfly Giacomo Puccini was entranced by David Belasco’s play Madame Butterfly (based on a popular short story by John Luther Long) when he saw it in London in 1900. He harnessed the talents of librettists Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa (with whom Puccini had created La bohème and Tosca) to adapt Cio-Cio-San’s tragic tale for the operatic stage. Although the premiere at La Scala, Milan, in 1904 was poorly received, that same year Puccini revised and restaged the opera for performances in Brescia, to great acclaim. Madama Butterfly quickly became a hugely popular opera with performers and audiences alike, and remains one of Puccini’s most performed works. Puccini drew on Japanese folk melodies for the score, one of his most evocative and atmospheric. In Act I, Cio-Cio-San expresses her radiant happiness in ‘Ancora un passo’, and the two lovers rapturously declare their love for each other in the passionate duet ‘Viene la sera’. In Act II the mood becomes increasingly strained, as in ‘Un bel dì vedremo’ when Cio-Cio-San longs for the ‘fine day’ when her husband will return to her. The romantic exoticism of 19th-century European images of Japan – an integral part of Madama Butterfly’s character – inspire Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s elegant production for The Royal Opera.

Antonio Pappano explores Giordano's Andrea Chénier score, identifies where the challenges are and offers vocals tips. Find out more at http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/andrea-chenier-by-david-mcvicar The Music Director of The Royal Opera works with Jonas Kaufmann and Eva-Maria Westbroek in this clip, broadcast as part of the live cinema relay of David McVicar's production on 29 January 2015. The premiere of Andrea Chénier at La Scala, Milan, on 28 March 1896 propelled the young Umberto Giordano to the front rank of the giovane scuola (an up-and-coming group of young Italian composers that included Puccini and Mascagni). The opera exemplifies the verismo style that dominated Italian opera of the period – nowhere more so than in Giordano's skilful interpolation of different musical styles to provide local colour, from the aristocratic Gavotte of Act I to the Marseillaise in Act IV. The libretto by Luigi Illica (Puccini’s collaborator for Manon Lescaut, La bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly) was inspired by the real-life Romantic poet André Chénier, who was guillotined just three days before Robespierre's execution. Andrea Chénier has become celebrated for the lyrical music it offers the tenor who takes the leading role, with the off-the-cuff Improvviso of Act I and his final aria 'Come un bel dì di maggio' particular highlights. But there are thrilling moments for the whole cast, including Maddalena's ardent aria 'La mamma morta', Gérard’s 'Nemico della patria!’ and a host of dramatic duets and characterful ensembles. David McVicar (whose productions for The Royal Opera include Le nozze di Figaro, Faust and Die Zauberflöte) directs The Royal Opera's new production, moving from the opulence of pre-Revolutionary France to the horrors of the Reign of Terror.

Antonio Pappano sees himself as a coach, or teacher, in his role as a conductor. He had no ambition to become a conductor but his talent was spotted by singers who recognised that he played the piano like an orchestra. His ability to create "musical pictures" helps to tell the story and to guide singers and the orchestra in their interactions. Pappano's conducting is a performance in itself, requiring stamina and energy, in order to inspire performers and audience alike.

Verdi: Messa da Requiem - Anja Harteros, Sonia Ganassim Rolando Villazon, Rene Pape / Orchestra e Coro dellAccademia di Santa Cecilia, Antonio Pappano Following the release of his critically acclaimed recording of Madama Butterfly, Music Director Antonio Pappano returned to the Orchestra and Chorus of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in January 2009 for performances of Verdis spectacular Requiem with stellar soloists Anja Harteros, Sonia Ganassi, Rolando Villazón and René Pape. EMI Classics microphones were at hand to record the concerts. In the words of Antonio Pappano, himself born to Italian parents, this is a Requiem written by an Italian and I think Italians relationship to religion is explosive, full of temperament, full of fear. . And the spectre of being punished, of sins it sounds like an opera Im describing. I love doing this piece here in Rome with an Italian chorus and an Italian orchestra, and they have an innate sense of what this music is about, how to bring it to life. They really know what the words mean. They have lived what it is to be religious or spiritual in Italy. Interviewed at the time of the performances, Rolando Villazón discusses the same subject: Many say that this is the best opera Verdi ever wrote. Clearly its not but the theatricality of the piece requires something more than what you would use for an oratorio Its a very delicate balance singers have to have. You have to respect the style of this church piece, and at the same time you have to bring out the emotion. To that end, Antonio Pappano brings out the extremes of dynamics in the orchestral, solo and chorus parts: the opening, one of Pappanos favourite sections, is hushed and what Canning describes as the great horror moments [send] shivers down the spine. ________________________________________ More information: http://www.pappanoverdi.com ________________________________________ Buy from Amazon (USA): http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B002HIEIVK/emi-jazz-class-21/ref%3Dnosim ________________________________________ Buy from Amazon (UK): http://astore.amazon.co.uk/emi-jazz-class-21/detail/B002HIEIVK ________________________________________ Buy from Amazon (FR): http://www.amazon.fr/exec/obidos/ASIN/B002HIEIVK/emi-jazz-class-21/ref%3Dnosim ________________________________________ Buy from Amazon (DE): http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/B002HIEIVK/emi-jazz-class-21/ref%3Dnosim ________________________________________ http://www.emiclassics.com http://www.emiclassics.co.uk http://www.emiclassics.de http://www.angelrecords.com ________________________________________

Damiano Michieletto directs new productions of Mascagni and Leoncavallo’s greatest operas. Find out more here: http://www.roh.org.uk/mixed-programmes/cavalleria-rusticana-pagliacci Pietro Mascagni adapted Giovanni Verga’s play Cavalleria rusticana (Rustic Chivalry) for a competition held by the music publisher Edoardo Sonzogno. His opera, a verismo masterpiece, won the competition and became a tremendous success on its premiere on 17 May 1890. Cavalleria rusticana influenced many operas that followed, including Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci (1892). Italian director Damiano Michieletto (Guillaume Tell) directs a double programme of both works for The Royal Opera. He updates the works to southern Italy in the late 20th century, to a village in the grip of poverty and hypocrisy, where strong passions lurk in the dark. Unusually for the time, Mascagni composed Cavalleria rusticana in set numbers – arias, duets and ensembles – rather than making it through-composed. He turns this structure to great advantage, using this formalism to detail the lives of his doomed characters within their repressive, repressed community, and to turn the screw as the opera hurtles towards its tragic end. Turiddu’s brindisi ‘Viva il vino spumeggiante’, Santuzza’s melancholic ‘Voi lo sapete, o mama’ and the Easter Hymn are among the musical highlights.
