I due Figaro (Carafa)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I due Figaro, o sia Il soggetto di una commedia is an 1820 opera (melodramma buffo) in two acts by Michele Carafa to a libretto by Felice Romani based on Les deux Figaro by Honoré-Antoine Richaud Martelly. The opera is a homage to Mozart, and tells of the further adventures of Cherubino, returned after 12 years in the army.[1][2]

Aimé Leborne (1797–1866) arranged his friend Carafa's work as Les deux Figaro at the Théâtre Odéon, Paris, 22 August 1827.[3]

  1. ^ Opera (2006) vol. 57, iss. 7–12, p. 80: "Felice Romani's libretto for Carafa's 1820 I due Figaro, programmed as an oblique homage to Mozart, tells of the further adventures of Cherubino, returned after a 12-year career in the army,"
  2. ^ Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung (1820) "Ich komme auf die dritte Frühlings-Oper, welche I due Figaro betitelt, neu von Herrn Carafa componirt, und verwichenen Dienstag zum ersten Mahle aber mit ungünstigem Erfolge gegeben wurde. Hat es Rossini in der lärmenden und geräuschvollen Musik auch weit gebracht, so ist das alles noch eine Sonate auf der Mandoline, im Vergleich mit manchem Stücke unsrer neuen Oper. Carafa hat in der Introduction derselben das non plus ultra des grössten Lärmens erreicht, obschon zum Ganzen noch die Kanonen fehlen. Kein menschliches Ohr ist im Stande das Meer von Noten zu verfolgen, und gewisse Reuter'sche Kirchenstücke im geschwinden Tempo sind Adagios gegen die Stretta dieser Introduction. Schon dieses erste lange Stück der Oper ermattet das arme Orchester dergestalt, dass es wenige Kräfte mehr zur Execution der folgenden Stücke hat,..."[full citation needed]
