Umberto Giordano
Andrea Chénier


Author of eleven operas, choral works, and chamber vocal and piano compositions, Umberto Giordano (1867–1948) etched his name into music history with just one masterpiece, the opera Andrea Chénier, which was a stunning success. In this sense Giordano’s career was similar to those of verismo composers Ruggero Leoncavallo and Pietro Mascagni.

Luigi Illica’s libretto deals with the twilight years of the life of André Chénier, a prominent poet of the French revolution time (although, of course, there is no historical accuracy in the opera). The Revolution, love and jealousy, honour and dishonor, servants and lords – all these themes are reflected in Giordano’s wonderful music. The magnificent arias, especially Chénier’s Un di all'azzurro spazio, have invariably been in the repertoire of leading singers.

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
The Snow Maiden

The opera is a non-fairytale love story. Events are unfolding amid the pagan festival of Maslenitsa (the Pancake week),full of merry-making, enjoyment of life and mischief. Maslenitsa is a short span of time between Winter and Spring, between eternal calm and eternal love (which of them do people need more?). It bursts into the fairytale people’s life to make it madly real. Mythical things are interwoven with earthly life, while earthly life rises to a myth.
