Location Details

Information: Tel/Fax: 416-783-9522

Event Details:

Christ Church Deer Creek is hosting an opera performance. On the schedule is Cavalleria Rusticana, a libretto by Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti and Guido Menasci.
It is named after the novella and the play of the same name by Giovanni Verga with music by Pietro Mascagni (1863-1945). Cavalleria was first performed in 1890 at the Teatro Costanzi, Rome.
Performers are Helena Holl (Soprano), Geoffrey Butler (Tenor), Jan Vaculik (Bass-Baritone), Sabationo Vacca (Soloist Pianist). The show is also narrated by Anthony Morizio and Violetta Holl.


Part I: Opera
Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni

The first part of the concert will feature a melodrama in one act titled Cavalleria Rusticana. This opera was the reason for Pietro Mascagni’s fame from the time it was first performed 17th of May 1890 at the Teatro Costanzi, Rome.

Lola and Turiddu were once in love, but when Turiddu returned from his military service she was already married. He was deeply hurt, but poured his misery into a new love, with Santuzza; a simple, but good-hearted girl. Lola grew more jealousy by the minute and was determined to win Turiddu back.

It’s Eastern morning, yet the sunrise brings grief to Santuzza as she sees unfaithful Turiddu leave Lola’s house. What is the point of life, if he does not love, honour and cherish her? His empty promises and lies keep echoing in her mind. What must she do now to return his sacred love? Must she beg or blame him? But upon his return, Turiddu is tired from his sleepless night and ignorant towards anything she has to say. Even after the threat of Santuzza’s curses on this saintly day, Turiddu cruelly pushes Santuzza out of his way to proceed to see Lola. Traumatized and abandoned Santuzza has only one thought: vendetta, revenge.

So what happens next? Lola’s husband, a rich older man named Alfio is convinced of her faithfulness. But with the thought of revenge Santuzza is stating facts, to deny this. He is furious. The man committing this crime will not live to see the sunset! At the same time Turiddu, who’s drunken with love and wine, invites everyone to drink to the ones dearest to them, implying Lola. Now nothing can hide from Alfio’s jealous eyes. “This wine in my body will turn to poison” says he spitting the offered wine to the feet of his enemy. According to an old Sicilian tradition the opponents must bite ones ear for the duel to begin. It will take place in the back of the village and for one man this will mean a bloody death.


Part II: Operetta

Performers will let the magic of the operetta take over from famous composers such as Kalman, Strauss and Lehar.

МОСКВА, 6 марта 2006 г. Всероссийский центр изучения общественного мнения (ВЦИОМ) представляет данные о том, как изменились возможности российских женщин за последние 10–15 лет, считают ли россияне 8 Марта праздником для себя лично, собираются ли отмечать этот праздник и что планируют подарить женщинам в этот день.

Мифология и сознание современного человека
...уже к началу XX в. возникли два мощнейших мифа. А что значит мощнейший? Это значит, что нормально рефлексирующий человек не смог их отрефлексировать: или у него не хватило времени, или у него не хватило сил, или у него не хватило того и другого. Это был миф марксизма и гораздо более отупляющий (то, что я назвал бы мифологическим эффектом) – миф Зигмунда Фрейда.
