Porrino:I Shardana



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
When we examine the score of I Shardana by Ennio Porrino, we easily understand what a central role this opera played in the artistic development of the composer. The ?rst drafts of it date from 1934-35, but the work only debuted years later, on 21st March 1959, at the San Carlo theatre in Naples, with its ?nal title of I Shardana and Porrino himself conducting. The composer would die suddenly a few months later.

Porrino's drama mirrors a period in archaeology when Nuragic Sardinia was discussed even in non-specialist circles, with the island's bronze statuettes and megaliths recalling a primeval society at the origins of European civilization. Hutalabì, indeed, is the ancient war cry of Sardinian horsemen, and the opera speaks of times when - as Porrino speci?es in the score - shepherds were warriors and judges, "when man did not believe in one God but in the power of the stars, and worshipped the dead and the waters". I Shardana, therefore, is set in a free Sardinia, an island where rigorous rules are in force and its people do not tolerate invasions or spiritual contamination.
