Le comte Ory

Comic Opera by Gioachino Rossini

Sunday, 12 December 2021, 7:00 pm
Munich, Prinzregententheater

Take an Italian opera buffa, add new ingredients, flavour the whole thing with a dash of French coquetry and elegance, and violà: you have a sparkling new comic opera. This is what happened in Paris in 1828 when Rossini created his next-to-last stage work Le comte Ory, drawing on his royal coronation opera Il viaggio a Reims. The result was a brilliant comedy about the amorous adventures of Count Ory, complete with a musical thunderstorm, drinking bouts and an “ill-starred” love trio.

About the performers

The title role of Count Ory requires a tenor who can do the impossible, so to speak. He needs supreme lyrical qualities, great agility and a feeling for Italian bel canto and the special French timbre in equal measure. The American tenor Lawrence Brownlee has all this and more. Ory’s adored Adèle is sung by the American soprano Brenda Rae, who, like her compatriot, has made a name for herself on both sides of the Atlantic. An interesting figure among internationally successful female conductors is the Italian Speranza Scappucci.
