There is a Chinese saying that goes "Three women make a play." From Thursday to Sunday, audiences in Beijing have the opportunity to put this saying to the
test by attending a self-produced version of Richard Strauss' classic opera Der
Rosenkavalier performed by three actresses at the National Centre for the
Performing Arts (NCPA).
Featuring well-known musicians from both home and abroad Comprar
Nike Air Max 95 Hombre , the opera will be performed by two groups of
actresses on different nights. To better preserve the opera's original European
flavor the first group consists of actresses from Germany, Austria and other
Western countries, while for the second group the two leads are played by
Chinese singers Liang Ning and Huang Ying.
This is not the first time that Liang and Huang have performed the opera, having previously played these roles overseas.
"I am so happy to present this role again back in China at the NCPA. In a very short time, only several
Nike Air Max Thea Hombre , NCPA has produced dozens of revivals and has
gained a lot of experience at producing such high-end operas. I am very proud,"
Huang told the Global Times.
Previously cooperating with Placido Domingo on Verdi's Nabucco in 2013, this is the second time that Gilbert Deflo has directed an NCPA revival of a classic
opera. Different from the tragic style of the last opera, this time Deflo is
looking to present a traditional German comedic opera featuring beautiful music.
A musical pioneer
Unlike the some widely performed operas such as Bizet's Carmen or Puccini's Turandot that are more or less familiar to the Chinese public, Der Rosenkavalier
is well-known as a difficult performance due to the high skill
Nike Air Max 90 Hombre , high cost and number of important characters.
Richard Strauss wrote this opera after his famed works Salome and Electra, which
launched his reputation as a brave and wild modern composer. However, Der
Rosenkavalier marks a return to tradition.
The Vienna Waltz style music that appears throughout the work captures the popular music phenomenon that was going on at the time. Additionally, elements
from Mozart, Rossini and other classic masters can be found in this
Nike Air Max 97 Hombre , which requires singers who have a broad range of
The story is also quite amusing, if a tad bit complicated.
Taking place during the 18th century, the Marschallin, Princess Marie Thérèse von Werdenberg, has a secret affair with the young Count Octavian. The morning
after they spend a wonderful
night Comprar Nike
Air Max Hombre , her cousin Baron Ochs breaks into her room forcing
Octavian to disguise himself as a maid, who, humorously enough, Ochs finds very
attractive. Ochs asks Marschallin to help him find someone who can act as his
"rose knight" and bring a ceremonial silver rose to his young fiancée Sophie.
Octavian is selected to take on this duty, but upon presenting the rose to Sophie falls in love with her at first sight. Sophie also falls for Octavian and
refuses to marry Ochs despite her family's wishes. So that he can be with
Nike Air Max 90 Negras , Octavian ends up dressing as a girl again to
seduce Ochs and ruin his engagement.
The opera is the first German language opera produced by the NCPA. According to Deflo, since the play features characters of different nationalities and
backgrounds in Vienna during the 18th century, as well as a character that must
pretend to be a woman at certain points, what characters say and how they say it
plays just as much an important role as the music. As such maintaining the
original language of the opera is of the utmost importance. This of course makes
the play difficult for its players as the Chinese actresses, who are used to
Nike Air Max TN Negras , must not only be able to sing in German, but must
also portray certain regional accents.
