Not for the first time, we welcome Edita Gruberová to the Palace of Arts. Her appearance is always a cause for celebration as the acclaimed Queen of Coloratura regularly provides Budapest audiences with wonderful performances in the company of the Slovak State Philharmonic Orchestra, Košice. “Her performance represents the highest level of the singer’s art, particularly in the bel canto style from around 1830, of which the first great modern exponent was Maria Callas,” wrote the music critic Gyö...rgy Kroó. Almost two decades have passed since then, but the soprano remains tireless. Born in Slovakia and with Hungarian and German roots, Gruberová emigrated in the 1970s, but remains proud of her homeland as a global star. She performs her repertoire – for example, the historical stage works of Donizetti and Bellini – all around the globe to a world-class standard, bringing these extraordinarily exciting but not always easily accessible works closer to a wider audience. One of several Donizetti operas connected to the lives of Lucrezia Borgia and the Tudor queens, Roberto Devereux has already been performed to enormous success at the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall. Now it is the turn of Anna Bolena, another of the works in the Italian composer’s Tudor trilogy, to be performed in a similar concert format. Premièred in 1830, the work dramatises the story of Henry VIII’s second wife, portraying the various characters and historical figures through finely-wrought melodies, and conveying the inner processes and conflicts with credible, dramatic power. An active role in this method of portrayal is assigned to the chorus; through a succession of masterfully constructed scenes, a far-reaching musical drama emerges. Presented by: Palace of Arts
