About the album

150 years after its composition, a lost opera is recovered and a vanished voice restored. A recently rediscovered treasure by one of the most compelling artists of the nineteenth century, Le dernier sorcier (The Last Sorcerer) resonates with themes of power and progress, gender and equality, and the restoration of natural order in an ever-changing world - a feminist eco-fable in operatic form. The work is a chamber opera in two acts written by Pauline Viardot on a French libretto by Ivan Turgenev. The plot centers on Krakamiche, a once-powerful sorcerer whose presence in the great woods has upset the fairies, the forest’s rightful inhabitants, and disturbed the harmony of the land. Through the combined efforts of the fairies and their queen, the sorcerer's daughter and her prince, and a hapless valet, Krakamiche ultimately learns key truths about humility, love, and living in harmony with the natural world. World premiere recording featuring Bass-Baritone Eric Owens, Mezzo-Soprano Jamie Barton, Soprano Camille Zamora, Mezzo-Soprano Adriana Zabala, Tenor Michael Slattery, Soprano Sarah Brailey, Manhattan Girls Chorus (Michelle Oesterle, Founder & Artistic Director), Pianists Myra Huang and Liana Pailodze Harron, and Narrator Trudie Styler.
150 Jahre nach seiner Komposition werden eine verlorene Oper und eine verschwundene Stimme wiederhergestellt. Ein kürzlich wiederentdeckter Schatz ,Le dernier sorcier (The Last Sorcerer) von Pauline Viardot resoniert mit den Themen Macht und Fortschritt, Geschlecht und Gleichheit sowie der Wiederherstellung der natürlichen Ordnung in einer sich ständig verändernden Welt - eine feministische Ökofabel in Opernform. Das Werk ist eine Kammeroper in zwei Akten, die von Pauline Viardot nach einem französischen Libretto von Ivan Turgenev geschrieben wurde. Das Grundstück konzentriert sich auf Krakamiche, einen einst mächtigen Zauberer, dessen Anwesenheit in den großen Wäldern die Feen, die rechtmäßigen Bewohner des Waldes, verärgert und die Harmonie des Landes gestört hat. Durch die gemeinsamen Bemühungen der Feen und ihrer Königin, der Tochter des Zauberers und ihres Prinzen und eines unglücklichen Dieners, lernt Krakamiche schließlich Schlüsselwahrheiten über Demut, Liebe und Leben in Harmonie mit der natürlichen Welt. Weltersteinspielung mit Bass-Bariton Eric Owens, Mezzo-Sopran Jamie Barton, Sopran Camille Zamora, Mezzo-Sopran Adriana Zabala, Tenor Michael Slattery, Sopran Sarah Brailey, Manhattan Girls Chorus (Michelle Oesterle, Gründerin & Künstlerische Leiterin), Pianisten Myra Huang und Liana Pailodze Harron sowie Erzählerin Trudie Styler.
