GOMES: Lo Schiavo - Trailer [Teatro Lirico di Cagliari, February 2019]

Google Rank
Brazilian composer Antônio Carlos Gomes was among the many musicians who travelled to Italy to master the language and the rules of operatic works. He studied in Milan and succeeded in having a few operas staged at Italian venues, and then returned to Brazil where he was hailed as the most famous living national composer. In his country, Gomes felt the urge to commit his work to the anti-slave cause, which was still a legal practice there, at the time. Lo schiavo, therefore was conceived as a politically engaged work. However, the issue was rather slippery and the composer had to change the contemporary time setting with a more distant one. In Brazil the opera obtained a triumphant success, but elsewhere it was not popular and soon it went into oblivion.

This recording of the Teatro Lirico di Cagliari’s production documents the opera’s first performance in modern times and unveils Gomes’ flamboyant richness of melodic creativity, wisdom of construction and a technical mastery of the theatrical mechanisms that are always of high level.
