The Power Station of Emotions & Villains Sing Bass

CHF 26.00 / EUR 23.00

The Power Station of Emotions: For over 400 years, musical theatre has accompanied all the virtues and flaws of modern society. Here we cover Wagner, the relationship between the earliest operas (Monteverdi, Cavalli) to the most modern (Nono, Lachenmann, Rihm) and also Mozart, an operatic doctor, a chamber singer as the user of doping substances and rarities by Portici and Bizet. Villains Sing Bass: Why do male figures in opera kill the sopranos? For what reason is Evil always given the best melodies? The beauty of opera lies in these relationships and interconnections. The 80,000 operas in existence form one single score which accompanies the past 400 years of society like a distorted mirror: This is the thesis propounded in Xaver Holtzmann's imaginary opera guide.
