The creative team behind the Latvian National Opera’s internationally acclaimed staging of Fausthighlights the little-known one-act opera L’incantesimo by Italo Montemezzi and playwright Sem Benelli. This opera has most likely only been staged in Europe once, over 60 years ago in the Verona Arena in Italy. In this new production’s concept L’incantesimo, one of the last works of Italian melodic opera, interplays with Pagliacci, which is another excellent example of the verismo style of opera composed by Ruggero Leoncavallo.
“Disregarding that both works are written in a verismo style, and that the story is virtually the same – a love triangle, jealousy and treachery – they are written in different genres. The opera L’incantesimois a lyrical medieval fairytale where romance alternates with fantasies and allegories, whereas Pagliacci is realistic. To bring out both styles our creative team createe an opportunity for viewers to take a journey not only through different time periods, but also different worlds,“ explains the director of the production, Aik Karapetian.
