YANN ARTHUS-BERTRAND: "HUMAN", THE FILM (DIRECTOR'S CUT VERSION)

 What is it that makes us human? Is it that we love, that we fight ? That we laugh ? Cry ? Our curiosity ? The quest for discovery ?

Driven by these questions, filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent three years collecting real-life stories from 2,000 women and men in 60 countries. Working with a dedicated team of translators, journalists and cameramen, Yann captures deeply personal and emotional accounts of topics that unite us all; struggles with poverty, war, homophobia, and the future of our planet mixed with moments of love and happiness.


MOMA MUSEUM, NEW YORK: ALEXANDER CALDER MODERN FROM THE START

Alexander Calder reimagined sculpture as an experiment in space and motion, upending centuries-old notions that sculpture should be static, grounded, and dense by making artworks that often move freely and interact with their surroundings. “One of Calder’s objects is like the sea,” wrote the philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, “always beginning over again, always new.” Bringing together early wire and wood figures, works on paper, jewelry, mobiles in motion, and monumental abstract sculptures, the exhibition takes a deep dive into the full breadth of Calder’s career and inventiveness.

Calder’s ever-changing artworks invite a viewer’s sustained attention; and The Museum of Modern Art has provided a setting for this productive exchange ever since his work was first exhibited here in 1930, just months after the Museum opened its doors. This exhibition looks at Calder’s work through the lens of this connection. Throughout MoMA’s formative years, Calder, in his unofficial role as “house artist,” was called upon to produce several commissioned works—including Lobster Trap and Fish Tail, a multicolored mobile that hangs in the same stairwell for which it was made in 1939. His works have been a mainstay of the Museum’s galleries and Sculpture Garden ever since.

Drawn from MoMA’s collection and augmented with key loans from the Calder Foundation, the exhibition celebrates one of the most beloved artists of the 20th century and presents rarely seen works, including the large-scale Man-Eater with Pennants, which will be on view in the Sculpture Garden for the first time in more than 50 years after new conservation.

EL TEATRO REAL, PREMIO EN LOS INTERNATIONAL OPERA AWARDS. PLÁCIDO DOMINGO VUELVE A ESPAÑA A CANTAR

El Teatro Real ha recibido esta noche el International Opera Award 2021  a la Mejor Teatro de Ópera, que reconoce la calidad de la programación artística a lo largo de 2019 y ha recibido el homenaje de la profesión a una trayectoria que ha afianzado su proyección internacional convirtiéndole en uno de los teatros de referencia en el mundo.

El director artístico del Teatro Real, Joan Matabosch, ha agradecido el premio, en nombre de la institución, y alabado el esfuerzo de la organización para llevar a cabo esta gala, a pesar de las complicadas circunstancias actuales, por el respaldo que supone para todos y el estímulo para recuperar la normalidad lo antes posible. Sus palabras han tenido un emotivo reconocimiento para todo el equipo del Teatro Real, tanto para sus órganos de gobierno como para todos y cada uno de los trabajadores que “cada día, con tesón, profesionalidad e ilusión consiguen levantar el telón”.

En este sentido, la organización de los International Opera Awards ha realizado una mención especial al Teatro Real por el trabajo realizado durante la pandemia – el 1 de julio se convertía en el primer teatro del mundo en reabrir sus puertas y durante los meses siguientes fue el único con actividad escénica ininterrumpida- lo que le ha convertido en símbolo de fortaleza, creatividad y esfuerzo en el panorama internacional.

El Teatro Real competía en la categoría de Mejor Compañía de Ópera con la Royal Opera House (Londres), la Finnish National Opera (Helsinki), la Ópera de Frankfurt, Opéra Comique (París) y La Monnaie/De Munt (Bruselas), siendo la segunda ocasión en la que optaba como finalista a este premio (fue nominado en 2018).

El Teatro Real estrenó, en 2019, nuevas producciones de Idomeneo, de Mozart (con Ivor Bolton en la dirección musical y escénica de Robert Carsen, nominado también en esta edición como Mejor Director de Escena); Falstaff, de Verdi (con Daniele Rustioni y Laurent Pelly); Capriccio, de Richard Strauss (con Asher Fish y dirección de escena de Christof Loy) e Il Pirata, de Bellini (con Maurizio Benini y Emilio Sagi).

Ese mismo año inició la Tetralogía wagneriana con El oro del Rin (con Pablo Heras-Casado y Robert Carsen); se estrenó La Calisto, de Cavalli (con Ivor Bolton y David Alden); regresó Dido & Aeneas, de Purcell (Christopher Moulds/Sasha Waltz), y se presentaron títulos tan populares como Il Trovatore (Maurizio Benini / Francisco Negrín) y Don Carlo (Nicola Luisotti / David McVicar) de Verdi, y L'elisir d'amore, de Donizetti (MarcPiollet/Damiano Michieletto), además del estreno absoluto de Je suis narcissiste, de Raquel García Tomás.

En mayo de 2018 el Teatro Real obtuvo también cuatro nominaciones: Mejor Coro, Mejor Compañía de Ópera, Mejor Obra Recuperada (Bomarzo) y Mejor Nueva Producción por Billy Budd, consiguiendo el primer galardón para esta última, dirigida en la escena por la británica Deborah Warner y en el foso por Ivor Bolton, y con especial mención a la excelente interpretación musical de los solistas, el Coro y Orquesta Titulares del Teatro Real.

En la presente edición, el Teatro Real había obtenido otras tres nominaciones en las categorías de Mejor Orquesta, con la Orquesta Titular del Teatro Real, Orquesta Sinfónica de Madrid; Mejor Estreno Absoluto, con la ópera Je suis narcisiste, de la compositora Raquel García Tomás, y Mejor Grabación Audiovisual por el DVD de Street Scene.


 Esta noche hemos celebrado también el premio al Mejor Cantante Joven, otorgado a Xabier Anduaga, quién se encuentra estos días en el Teatro Real ensayando la ópera Viva la mamma, de Gaetano Donizetti, cuyo estreno tendrá lugar el próximo 2 de junio, en el que también participa el barítono Carlos Álvarez, uno de los cuatro finalistas a Mejor Cantante Masculino.

NOTICIAS RECIENTES SOBRE RECITALES DE PLÁCIDO DOMINGO EN ESPAÑA, ESTE VERANO

En otra velada lujosa y cara, dará junto a Ainhoa Arteta, un recital en Marbella, en el Festival Starlite, el 18 de agosto. «Para mí será una gran emoción cantarle a mi gente», expresó el artista. 

En este impasse en que no ha actuado en España por las denuncias de abusos recibidas, el baritenor participó de producciones en el teatro Bolshoi de Moscú, en roles verdianos: los pasados 15 y 18 de abril volvió a su tesitura de barítono con el Marqués de Posa en la imponente Don Carlo, con la que consiguió la sala el lleno total.

YUSIF EYVAZOV AND JONY SPOKE ABOUT THEIR PARTICIPATION IN THE RUSSIAN SHOW “MASK”

 BAKU, Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan The show “Mask” is the Russian version of the world hit The Masked Singer.

The second place was also taken by an Azerbaijani – People’s Artist of Azerbaijan Yusif Eyvazov, who was hiding under the guise of “Lama”.

One step away from victory stopped the sweetest and kindest participant in the project – Lama. At the start of the season, he skillfully disguised his vocal abilities, but in each episode he performed a legendary hit that not everyone will take on: You Raise Me Up by the Irish-Norwegian duo Secret Garden, The Show Must Go On by the rock band Queen, “Love Like dream “by Alla Pugacheva, Still Loving You of the rock band Scorpions, the aria of the rock opera” Starmania “SOS d’un terrien en detresse and the final – Ave Maria. Each time the audience and the jury witnessed the real triumph of the world famous opera singer Yusif Eyvazov, who joked, was sad, rejoiced and amazed with his performance.

Yusif Eyvazov shared his impressions with NTV: “Guys, I can’t describe the feelings that overwhelm me now, because it was my dream – to go on this stage, to enter this project – from the very moment I saw the first release of the show last year. And this dream has come true, you have fulfilled it. When they called me and asked if I wanted to participate, I immediately agreed, although I knew that in January I had eight performances of “Turandot” at the Teatro alla Scala, in February – five performances in Paris. I didn’t understand how I would technically do it, but I agreed anyway, because for me it was a dream. With this amazing mask, I could be who I have never been, anywhere.

The crocodile faithfully and persistently walked towards his goal, his charisma, energy and charm beat absolutely everyone, and the jury called him a superstar. Jony, who had been hiding under the guise of Crocodile for three months, admitted that even during the first season he wanted to take part in the show and demonstrate what he had not shown earlier in his songs. And he did it for sure, because every time the jury and the audience reacted to his numbers was incredible. The judges of the project were able to guess the talented artist and named his name before removing the mask.

Ions: “How did you see me through? It’s just stunned. I have never experienced so many emotions in my life. In fact, I know why it turned out this way, why the “Mask” show is the best show in Russia. The answer is very simple: because all the people who are involved in this show are so bright, so kind and so radiant, and so passionate about their work that you just want to give yourself completely to this show. “

Yulia Parshuta (Snake) and Timur Batrutdinov (Zayats) also reached the superfinal. For three months, viewers closely followed the fate of 14 masks, trying to find an answer to the main question: “Who is hiding behind the mask?” Among the participants were: two-time Olympic champion Svetlana Khorkina (Black Panther), producer Iosif Prigozhin (Pineapple), People’s Artist of Russia Yuri Stoyanov (Banana), TV presenter, singer and actress Olga Buzova (Pink Panther), TV presenter and actress Marina Kravets (Sun) , singer Irina Dubtsova (Unicorn), singer and TV presenter Mark Tishman (White Eagle), singer Kirill Turichenko (Rhino), singer Stas Piekha (Tumbler).

The third season of the show will air on NTV in 2022. The show is produced by White Media. Photos provided by the press service of the NTV channel.

MUSEO LÁZARO GALDIANO. EXPOSICIÓN EL LIBRO DE RETRATOS DE PACHECO

 José Lázaro Galdiano fue uno de los más notables bibliófilos españoles de finales del siglo XIX y de la primera mitad del XX. El Museo y la Biblioteca Lázaro Galdiano destacan esta faceta del coleccionista, sumándose a las celebraciones del Día del Libro, con la exposición El Libro de retratos de Pacheco. Memoria de varones ilustres del Siglo de Oro. Diez semanas, diez páginas: uno de los manuscritos más célebres del Siglo de Oro como nunca antes se había mostrado en el Museo Lázaro Galdiano. Puesto que el volumen está encuadernado, el equipo de conservación de la Biblioteca cambiará de página cada semana y esto permitirá contemplar nueve de los cincuenta y seis retratos, comenzando por la portada y continuando por el de Fray Luis de León, Francisco de Quevedo y Felipe II, entre otros. Además, junto al manuscrito original se mostrarán ejemplares de otras ediciones del libro, de los siglos XIX y XX, y documentos referentes al camino que recorrió hasta llegar a formar parte de la biblioteca de José Lázaro Galdiano.


Comisario: Juan Antonio Yeves

Organiza: Biblioteca y Museo Lázaro Galdiano

Del 06/04/2021 al 13/06/2021

Sala 6. Museo Lázaro Galdiano. Calle Serrano 122 (Madrid)

Precio: Visita incluida con la entrada al Museo.

El Libro de retratos de Pacheco

Este manuscrito, adquirido por Lázaro en 1920, es uno de los más conocidos de su biblioteca y buena prueba de su pasión por el arte y por los libros. Cuando lo mostró en París, en 1936, decía que era «el más famoso libro español» y, como habían afirmado algunos otros críticos, pensaba que en él había intervenido la mano de Velázquez.

Este bellísimo libro constituye lo más notable de la producción artística de Pacheco, proporcionándole justa fama como retratista. Pintó los retratos y trazó las semblanzas de personajes ilustres, según el ideal humanístico de la integración de literatura y arte, con el deseo de que permaneciesen «sin apartarlos ni dividirlos, con sus memorias, relaciones y eloxios, porque no se pierda memoria de tan insignes sujetos».

En las semblanzas de los personajes no siempre aparece la descripción, pero Pacheco sí hace la de fray Luis: «fue pequeño de cuerpo en devida proporción; la cabeça grande, bien formada, poblada de cabello algo crespo i el cerquillo cerrado; la frente espaciosa, el rostro más redondo que aguileño (como lo muestra el retrato), trigueño el color, los ojos verdes i vivos».

En la segunda mitad del siglo XVI, época de fervor por mantener viva la memoria de personajes que debían ser recordados por sus méritos, florecieron estas colecciones de «vidas seriadas» y la ideada por Pacheco, pintor y biógrafo, es la principal aportación española a esta rama de la historiografía. Su fama se debe a que junto el retrato literario y biográfico encontramos el retrato pictórico, que muchos casos es de extraordinario mérito artístico.

DE GIACOMO MEYERBEER - LE PROPHÈTE - CORONATION MARCH

 


Program Notes

Le Prophète ("The Prophet") is a grand opera in five acts by Giacomo Meyerbeer. The plot is based on the life of John of Leiden, Anabaptist leader and self-proclaimed "King of Münster" in the 16th century.

The Coronation March marking the accession of the prophet Jean de Leyde's takes place in Act IV in Münster Cathedral, where Layde accepts the crown, the scepter, the sword of justice, and the seal of the State. A band, consisting of 18 saxhorns, two cornets, two trumpets, and four military drum, appears on stage for the coronation.

TEATRO CARLO FELICE PRESENTS MAY AND JUNE 2021. CONCERT AND OPERA PROGRAMME. RICCARDO MUTI E LA FILARMONICA DI VIENNA, IN ITALIA

 Fabio Luisi, Nicola Luisotti, Donato Renzetti, Alexander Lonquich among guest conductors. Opera returns on stage with L'elisir d’amore,

starring Accademia del Teatro Carlo Felice soloists.


Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa finally rediscovers its everyday musical life and presents its May and June 2021 concert and opera programme.

Four symphonic concerts at the Teatro Carlo Felice featuring the Orchestra of the Teatro Carlo Felice under the batons of Nicola Luisotti (May 14), Alexander Lonquich (May 18), Donato Renzetti (May 22), Fabio Luisi (May 27), with repertoires ranging from classicism, to romanticism and late romanticism, up to the Italian twentieth century.

The dates of two further concerts are to be announced: the Coro del Teatro Carlo Felice’s, directed by Francesco Aliberti, featuring Requiem Mass in D minor K.626 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart for solos, choir and orchestra in the four hands piano transcription by Carl Czerny (Sirio Restani, Patrizia Priarone, piano), Kyrie from Giovani Pierluigi da Palestrina’s Missa Brevis and choral The Lamb by John Kenneth Tavener, and the Teatro Carlo Felice Children's Choir’s, directed by Gino Tanasini.

Programme includes a new production of L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti, to be premiered on June 10 (reruns on 11, 12, 13, 16 June), featuring the soloists of the Accademia del Teatro Carlo Felice (artistic director Francesco Meli). On Lele Luzzati's 100th birth anniversary, the productions will feature his famous scenography and sets, with the direction of Davide Garattini Raimondi and costumes by Santuzza Calì. Alessandro Cadario conducts the Orchestra and Coro del Teatro Carlo Felice.

The Orchestra del Teatro Carlo Felice will also reach Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza (June 20), for the world premiere of Da Ponte & Friends, an ambitious project to rediscover Da Ponte’s legacy “ beyond Mozart”, with pages of great interest from L’ape musicale and more, by Antonio Salieri, Domenico Cimarosa, Stephen Storace, Peter Von Winter, Vincente Martín y Soler, Joseph Weigl, Manuel del Pópulo Vicente Rodriguez García. Conductor Alvise Casellati, soloists Mariangela Sicilia (soprano), Giovanni Sala (tenor), Riccardo Fassi (bass).

Superintendent Claudio Orazi declares: «After the success of our “musical marathon” in the occasion of the theatre’s reopening, we are ready to welcome the audience again and safely. We’ve planned some important symphonic and choral concerts in May and in June, featuring our theatre’s Orchestra, Chorus and Children's Choir, with conductors such as Luisotti, Lonquich, Renzetti, Luisi. In June, we celebrate Lele Luzzati’s 100th birth anniversary with the performance of L'elisir d'amore by Donizetti, on one of his most beloved set designs, with the soloists of the Accademia del Teatro Carlo Felice (artistic director Francesco Meli) and Alessandro Cadario as the conductor. The opera will then be staged in September at the Teatro degli Arcimboldi in Milan, as part of a collaboration project with the theatre. Our Chorus and Children's Choir’s concerts, mainly set in spiritual locations, will be notable. Last but not least, our "Da Ponte & Friends" programme will be taken to some of the most beautiful theatres in the world, starting with the Olimpico in Vicenza (20 June) thanks to the collaboration with the Municipality of Vicenza: the beginning of a musical journey that will continue around the world».

The symphonic concert on Friday 14 May, at 8.00 pm features Nicola Luisotti on the occasion of his return in Genova as concert master and director of the Orchestra del Teatro Carlo Felice, in a program that combines Symphony in D major by Luigi Cherubini (1815), seldom performed, despite its grandiose design, in which formal mastery merges with a keen sense of thematic elaboration, and famous Symphony n. 3 in F major op.90 by Johannes Brahms, performed for the first time in 1883, the year of its creation, at Vienna’s Musikverein, under the musical direction of Hans Richter.

On Tuesday 18 May at 8.00 pm, Alexander Lonquich at the head of the Orchestra del Teatro Carlo Felice as concert master, conductor and soloist will perform Concerts for piano and orchestra n. 14 in E flat major K. 449 and n.17 in G major, K. 453 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Between the two, Symphony no. 83 in G minor "La Poule" (The hen), Hob: I: 83 by Franz Joseph Haydn, which owes its popularity to the characteristic second theme of the first movement, extending a ray of “sunshine” through a composition written by Haydn, far from his stormy Sturm und Drang period, in a minor key.

The concert conducted by Donato Renzetti, Saturday 22 May, begins with Claude Debussy's Petite suite for two pianos (1888-89), in the transcription for orchestra by Henri Büsser. Follows the suite Gli uccelli by Ottorino Respighi, from 1927, linking to the series of Antiche Arie e danze, featuring 17th and 18th century music for harpsichord or lute evoking birds songs (Bernardo Pasquini, Jacques de Gallot, Jean-Philippe Rameau) transcribed by Respighi and unified in a coherent suite. In the second part, Symphony n. 3 in A minor op. 56 “Scottish” by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy is perfect synthesis of formal classical canons and romantic spirit, and is characterized by conceptual unity and narrative continuity, Mendelssohn's last symphony (published as the third of a corpus of five) was composed and performed in 1842. His first ideas, however, were sketched in 1829 during a trip by the composer to Edinburgh in the footsteps of Mary Stuart, in whose coronation chapel, in ruins, he wrote to his family: «Today, in this ancient chapel, I believe I have found the beginning of the Scottish Symphony ».

The concert conducted by Fabio Luisi on Thursday 27 May is dedicated to the revolutionary Symphony No. 4 by Anton Bruckner, “Romantic”, in four majestic movements. The opera, composed in over four years, of great personal instability which Bruckner's self-critical spirit could only accentuate, marks the first, fragile success of the Austrian composer. With this work he ended by earning the appreciation of critic Eduard Hanslick, a bitter detractor of Wagner and of all those who, while cultivating robust and independent personalities, dared to take the side of his musical conception.

Scheduled from 10 to 16 June, L'elisir d'amore is a playful work written by Gaetano Donizetti in 1832 with a libretto by Genoese Felice Romani, inspired by Le Philtre by Daniel Auber on Eugène Scribe’s libretto, which was quite popular in Paris in those years. In just a two acts lapse, Donizetti cunningly condenses comic and semi-serious genres, amalgamating in the mix a metateatral dimension. The result is a comedy of misunderstandings and intrigues of great melodic vitality, whose plot, ready to "snap" like a trap, will mercilessly rewind around the fate of the conspirators.
