Editorial Reviews

The co-production of the Oper Frankfurt with the Cantiere Internazionale d'Arte di Montepulciano has been recognized as the finest production of this work presented to date. For this love story of a single day Salvatore Sciarrino creates a form of music which expresses the finest nuances of feeling of the human soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't promise that you'll enjoy this performance ... November 28, 2012

... and in fact I'm absolutely certain that many of "you" will hate it and never finish watching it. Take my "five star" rating with caution therefore. My own initial reaction to the bizarre vocal writing of Salvatore Sciarrino was closer to horror than appreciation. Only my "pride" in being au courant compelled me to listen again and to keep listening, listening, listening ... until I could hear what it is that other auditors relish in Sciarrino's abrasive distortions of language ad melody. Do I love it now? Not quite, but I think I "get it" well enough to admire its originality.

"Luci Mie Traditori" is a four-character chamber opera of seventy minutes. It's a lurid tale of infidelity and jealousy, based abstractly on the murder of his wife and her lover by the 17th C Italian composer Don Carlo Gesualdo, whose extreme chromaticisms and emotive dissonances have made him more famous in our times than he was in his own. If you know Gesualdo's madrigals, you may be able to hear allusions to them in the score of Sciarrino's opera.

Everything about Sciarrino's music is provocatively edgy and avant garde. He means his sounds to be as shocking as the passions his libretto portrays. His vocal lines are essentially "recitativo" shattered with irruptions of sound and silence, but the words of his recitativos flicker so quickly past our ears that no subtitles could possibly catch up to them. I could follow the Italian only with such intense concentration that I scarcely heard the music. It's a texture of outbursts. And it must have required the singers -- the Countess/Wife Nina Tarandek, the Cuckolded Count Christian Miedl, and the Lover/Guest Roland Schneider -- to forego all normal habits of vocal technique.
