CasasdeÔpera is a digital cycle based on short lyrical pieces, created and shot entirely by artists from the Teatro Colón during the months of social isolation caused by the pandemic.
La canzonetta semplice
La canzonetta semplice is a song composed by the musician Igor Krutoj with lyrics by the unforgettable Russian baritone Dmitri Aleksandrovich Hvorostovsky (October 16, 1962 - November 22, 2017), who immortalized it with his performance in the recording of the album "Deja Vu", besides having sung it in countless concerts together with the enormous sopranos Sumi Jo and Aida Garifullina.
Today is the best day of my life
Today is the best day of my life (Heute ist der schönste Tag in meinem Leben) is a song by the Viennese musician Hans May (1886-1958) with lyrics by Ernst Neubach.
Fuggi, crudele, fuggi
From Mozart's opera Don Giovanni, this piece combines spiritual and earthly desires between the tragic and the grotesque.
The Barcarolle is the most famous duet of the opera, also known as "Belle nuit, ô nuit d'amour", written in a moderate tempo in the style of the folk songs sung by the gondoliers of Venice, the city where the scene takes place.
This German song by Martin Gotthard Schneider composed in 1961 reminds us that, despite everything, we have a lot to be thankful for.
Lascia ch'io pianga
Contemporary echoes of a song to freedom written by Georg Händel and Giacomo Rossi in 1711.
Largo al factotum
Largo al factotum is the cavatina sung by Figaro in the first act of Il Barbiere di Siviglia, the comic opera by Gioacchino Rossini.
CasasdeÔpera shows an innovative aesthetic that seeks new ways to approach the operatic genre. This approach is enhanced by the artisan work done by the singers themselves in their homes to solve the needs of makeup, lighting, costumes, art and camera with domestic objects and a huge dose of creativity.
The result is impressive for its artistic and technical quality. A product with the excellence mark of the Teatro Colón that opens a door to experimentation with formats for the opera, using new technologies for expression and art.
