February 23, 2008: Cavalleria Rusticana in Vienna

2008-02-23 Cavalleria Rusticana (P. Mascagni), Wiener Staatsoper

Santuzza = Georgina Lukács
Turiddu = Peter Seiffert
Alfio = Alberto Mastromarino
Mamma Lucia = Daniela Denschlag
Lola = Roxana Constantinescu

Marco Armiliato, conductor

Cavalleria Rusticana
Inszenierung: Jean Pierre Ponnelle
Bühnenbild und Kostüme: Jean Pierre Ponnelle

I suffered so with this Santuzza, the rejection of the villagers and even priests and children. It was almost unbearable to watch. I have never felt such a depression from this opera before. I felt that I was in this village that was so closed to kindness. Georgina Lukács was wonderful as Santuzza. Acting and with her voice. Really sad that it is the women who suffer most in such a patriarchal culture. When Turriddu was killed ...

Innegiamo with Lukács was a great moment of rare beauty and sense of kindness....
