Letzte Vorstellungen: La Fanciulla

Nicholas Milton wird am 19. und 26.06.2011 die letzten Vorstellungen der umjubelten Neuproduktion von La Fanciulla del West am Landestheater Innsbruck dirigieren (Regie: Thaddeus Strassberger). Beginn: 19.30 Uhr.

Almost 40 years since its last performance of the work, the State Theatre of Innsbruck presents a stunning new production of Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West“. The enormously successful premiere received unanimous and rapturous acclaim - a gigantic success accompanied by extended minutes of cheering. Nicholas Milton, presenting an exquisite „visiting card“ with this extraordinary debut for the company, inspired the Tiroler Symphony Orchestra Innsbruck to a performance of the highest level. Milton perfectly understands Puccini’s richly colourful score with its wondrous echoes to the tonal languages of his contemporaries Debussy and R. Strauss - all of this revealed in the performance through an exquisite and energizing sound imagination. Most impressively - the monumental second act, with its sensual „Tristan“ colours makes a powerful impression in the powerfully sculpted love duet, and the spine-tingling poker scene was yet another magnificent orchestral highlight. And although the orchestra was of a massive size and power, it never once sounded too loud or noisy - a true testament to the sensitivity and abilities of the Tiroler Symphony Orchestra and undeniable proof of what can be achieved when the right man is standing on the podium.
