Openbare masterclass door zangeres Nelly Miricioiu



“Come scoglio” from Così fan tutte Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
Luiza Dedisin, soprano  
Nathalie Doucet, pianist 

Synopsis: Two mysterious Albanians (actually, Guglielmo and Ferrando in disguise) have shown up at the sisters’ door, accompanied by Don Alfonso. The two men attempt to woo the sisters. Fiordiligi will have nothing to do with it, and in this virtuosic aria, declares her loyalty to Guglielmo and insists that the strangers stop trying to win them. 

“Di tanti palpiti” from Tancredi Gioachino Rossini 
Cameron Shahbazi, countertenor
Nathalie Doucet, pianist 

Synopsis: Tancredi and his men have returned from an imposed exile and have disembarked their ship, not too far from Argirio’s Palace. Tancredi pledges to defend the city against invaders and to seek his beloved, Amenaide, Argirio’s daughter. He sends his men out to spread the word that an unknown knight has arrived to save the city, then returns to thinking about Amenaide, and how much pain he has caused her since being away. 

“Come un'ape nei giorni d'aprile” from La Cenerentola Gioachino Rossini 
Jorge Castro, baritone
Nathalie Doucet, pianist 

Synopsis: By way of a rather elaborate plan, Alidoro – Prince Ramiro’s former tutor – meets Don Magnifico’s three daughters: Tisbe, Clorinda, and Angelina (Cenerentola). He finds Tisbe and Clorinda repellent, but is charmed by Angelina’s kind and generous spirit. In an effort to matchmake, he tells Prince Ramiro to disguise himself as his own valet – Dandini – in order to slyly meet his future wife, Angelina. Ramiro does so and falls in love with her. In this aria, Dandini comes to Don Magnifico’s house – disguised as Prince Ramiro – to playfully invite Tisbe and Clorinda to attend the Royal Ball. 

“D’oreste, d’ajace” from Idomeneo Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) 
Adéline Le Mer, soprano
Nathalie Doucet, pianist 

Synopsis: Neptune's voice has just decreed that in order to appease him, the king must abdicate and give Idamante the throne with Ilia as his wife. Elettra – who is in love with Idamante and was always jealous of Ilia – is furious and declares that she is tortured beyond belief and might as well just die.
