Bunbury. El camino más largo – En cines el 15 de marzo

Un rockumental sobre la gira de Bunbury por los Estados Unidos llega a las pantallas de España el 15 de marzo.

El 11 de noviembre de 2010 Enrique Bunbury actuó en el Estadio Azteca de Mexico, convirtiéndose en el primer músico español en congregar 90.000 personas en un concierto en Latinoamércia él sólo.  Unos meses después, la estrella de rock decide afrontar un nuevo reto adentrándose en un fascinante e inédito tour por carretera a lo largo y ancho de Estados Unidos, en compañía de su banda, su mujer y su gato, dando conciertos en lugares nunca antes explorados por el rock español. Lo que en un principio parecía un apasionante viaje para conquistar nueva audiencia y un nuevo mercado, pronto se torna en un inesperado viaje interior de Enrique a sus propias luces y sombras con la música, convirtiéndose en un viaje vital donde cada kilómetro es como si fuera el último.

Iolanta | The Nutcracker in cinemas Live from Opéra de Paris March 17, 2016

Directed for the stage by Dmitri Tcherniakov, this exceptional programme combines all the talents of the Paris Opera and offers an opera and a ballet in a single evening: Tchaikovsky originally intended Iolanta and The Nutcracker to be staged together. However, since their debut performance at Saint Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre in 1892, they have been presented separately. The composer found inspiration for his opera in Danish playwright Henrik Hertz’s work recounting the romantic story of Iolanta, the blind daughter of King René. Protected by her father in his Provençal château, the princess ultimately regains her sight before marrying the gallant knight Vaudémont.

The Nutcracker is based on a tale by Hoffmann adapted by Alexandre Dumas. Like a two-sided mirror reflecting the dreams of a composer who took refuge in the realms of the imaginary, the Paris Opera is reviving the original diptych. Alain Altinoglu conducts and Dmitri Tcherniakov stages this production that symbolises the link between opera and ballet.

Il Trovatore from Opéra de Paris LIVE in cinemas February 11, 2016

Anna Netrebko, Marcelo Álvarez and Ludovic Tézier will be LIVE in cinemas next February 11 from Opéra national de Paris in a production of Alex Ollé (La Fura dels Baus).

In the aftermath of Rigoletto, Verdi’s sole desire was to do something new. However, he became impatient, angry even, when the project to adapt El Trovador, the play by the Spanish dramatist Antonio García Gutiérrez, aroused only guarded enthusiasm from Salvatore Cammarano, his librettist, and the man to whom Donizetti owed in part the success of Lucia di Lammermoor. Was it due to the libretto’s inordinately improbable storyline or the illness that would ultimately consume him that the poet left the libretto unfinished? Despite the urgings of the irrepressible Verdi, Cammarano would not yield. Herein lies the paradox of Il Trovatore: in the eyes of its detractors it was the epitome of melodrama and yet the formal constraints imposed by Cammarano fanned the flames of the composer’s passions.

Rather than true characters – excepting perhaps Azucena the Gypsy, who guards the secret that will destroy them all – the music portrays almost abstract figures consumed by passion. Originally intended by Verdi to be a secondary role, Leonora takes on the status of a sacrificial heroine. Her fourth-act cavatina “D’amor sull’ali rosee” is not so much a farewell as an Assumption. Anna Netrebko carries this enraptured music to new heights. She is accompanied by Ekaterina Semenchuk, Marcelo Alvarez and Ludovic Tézier, in a new production by Alex Ollé.

Der Fliegende Holländer, Richard Wagner’s opera from Opernhaus Zürich achived great reviews:

  • Acclaim for Zürich’s Dutchman – Bryn Terfel’s first recording of the role in any medium: “Terfel achieves almost supernatural stage presence…One has no wish to experience any other Dutchman… Gripping, passionate music theatre” Oper aktuell
  • A truly titanic experience” Financial Times
  • “She (Anja Kampe) has the purity of tone and openness of visage that we associate with Senta, and she phrased her music on a large scale, with unfailing emotional generosity”. Stephen Hastings – Opera News
