( 22 May 2018 ) ‘Se non è vero, è molto ben trovato’. (If it is not true, it is very well invented.) – This aphorism, formulated by the philosopher and priest Giordano Bruno, serves as a useful caveat when reading the legends written about castrati. Basking in the rays of international fame, they hold a dual position in music history as heroes and great mysteries.

Like others before him (for instance, the literate Sami, Olaus Sirma), he delivered on demand selective and reworked samples of what he thought a polished audience would be able to take of the literary culture of an unknown and savage people.

Zingarelli’s opera “Giulietta e Romeo”

by FESTSPIELKIEBITZ  12:01 h;
posted in: Whitsun

( 9 May 2016 ) In the second text in his Kreisleriana, E.T.A. Hoffmann goes into raptures over the “indescribable power of the most irresistible appeal for any receptive mind.” This is his characterisation of the aria “Ombra adorata aspetta” in Zingarelli’s opera Giulietta e Romeo, extremely famous at the time, with which Romeo invokes the ghost of his supposedly deceased lover after taking poison. Not only this literary appraisal, but also the fact that Zingarelli’s opera was staged in ever-changing versions indebted to prevalent operatic tastes from its première in 1796 until the late 1820s, bears witness to the work’s enormous popularity.
