Medea

Medea /at the Music Theatre Médée is performed in Italian version by Carlo Zangarini with recitatives by Franz Lachner/ is one of the masterpieces of French opera art at the turn of the XVIII–XIX centuries. Its author is Luigi Cherubini, one of the founders of the Paris Conservatoire, a composer whom Beethoven called “the best” among his contemporaries, a witness and chronicler of the Great French Revolution. He created a work comparable in scale to the ancient Greek myth taken as a basis. Cherubini’s Medea, one of the greatest operatic tragedies, demands vocal skills and a bright acting talent from the singers. In the middle of the XX century Medea experienced a rebirth thanks to Maria Callas. The role of Medea, played by Callas, became a legend on the opera stage, and since then special demands have been made on the performers of the title role. One of the reasons for staging ths opera at the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre became the presence in the Opera Company two singers with a strong and expressive voice and a bright stage personality. The role of Medea is performed by the world-famous soprano Hibla Gerzmava and one of the brightest stars of the Moscow opera stage Natalia Muradymova.
