Erich Wolfgang Korngold: Violanta



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Teatro Regio di Torino has contributed to the rediscovery of this precious one-act opera by staging its Italian premiere. Violanta is Korngold's second opera, which the composer wrote in 1914 at the age of 17. Korngold grew up in this environment, absorbing various influences which are all present in Violanta, making this opera a sort of 'small-scale Vienna'. Korngold's music, with its highly refined orchestration, perfectly paints the contrast between the dark and deathly atmosphere of the oppressive world which Simone forces upon his wife and the sudden glimpses of life, sensuality and passion brought by Alfonso, making Violanta one of the masterpieces of the early twentieth century. Korngold sets this opera in an imaginary, decadent fifteenth-century Venice, reflecting a fascination for the Renaissance and for the themes of passion and death that were in vogue at the time. Pier Luigi Pizzi, stage director, costume and lighting designer for this production, chose to set the action at the beginning of the 1920s in a decadent Venice, where distant echoes of a melancholic Carnival add a sense of gloom to the whole performance. Here is how he decided to portray the main characters.
