ロイヤル・オペラの新たな挑戦:新しいオペラをたくさん

2013.01.12

(ロイヤル・オペラ・ハウスのウェブから。「アナ・ニコル」を演じるウェストブルック)

今週、ロイヤル・オペラから興味深いニュースが届いた。それは、2013年のシーズンから2020年まで、ロイヤル・オペラ独自企画を含めて、新しいオペラを意欲的に上演するというもの。

Royal Opera announces new work and relationships for 2013-2020
http://www.roh.org.uk/news/royal-opera-announces-new-work-and-relationships-for-2013-2020

The Royal Opera has announced artistic plans for more than 15 new works to be presented from 2013 to 2020, both on the Main Stage and in the Linbury Studio Theatre.

Director of Opera Kasper Holten and Music Director Antonio Pappano plan to extend the established tradition of commissioning British composers as well as work by leading international artists.

Kasper Holten commented: “New work is not and should not be at the periphery of our programme, but right at the core of what and who we are. And this is something we do, not because we must, but because it is something that we are passionate about. We hope that opera audiences will share our curiosity and come with us with open minds along this journey.”

Antonio Pappano added: “Our efforts are being focused on working with the composers who really excite us, both for the Linbury Studio Theatre and for the main stage. We have worked hard to find the composers we feel have a real flair and passion for opera, and we are very excited about being able to roll out our vision for new work on all scales.”

2012/13 will see the UK stage premiere in the Linbury for Gerald Barry’s The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Ramin Gray, alongside the UK premiere of George Benjamin’s Written on Skin and the revival of Harrison Birtwistle’s The Minotaur.

2013/14

Next Season will see a number of productions created specially for the Linbury including Australian composer Ben Frost’s adaptation of Iain Banks’s cult novel The Wasp Factory. The composer will also direct the opera that has been commissioned by Bregenz Festival’s Art of our Times programme. It is a co-production with the Royal Opera House, Hebbel-am-Ufer Berlin, Holland Festival and Cork Midsummer Festival.

Also presented in the 2013/14 Season will be a Christmas opera for family audiences by Julian Philips and directed by Natalie Abrahami; two new pieces inspired by the Faust legend, one by British electronic composer Matthew Herbert, and the other by composer Luke Bedford and playwright David Harrower; the first UK performances of renowned Italian composer Luca Francesconi’s Quartett (a new version directed by John Fulljames and co-produced with London Sinfonietta and Opéra de Rouen after the piece’s 2010 premiere at La Scala, Milan); and the first of an annual collaboration with Aldeburgh Music and Opera North to commission first operas from young composers.

2014/15

Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Anna Nicole will return to the Main Stage, followed by a new opera in the Linbury by Philip Glass, based on Franz Kafka’s The Trial. The opera is a co-commission with Music Theatre Wales and Houston Grand Opera. Also commissioned for the Linbury is a new chamber opera by German/Danish composer Søren Nils Eichberg and librettist Hannah Dübgen. The opera is a taut thriller, which asks us to question what we can really trust – which emotions are real and which are virtual.

2015-19

Future plans include a new opera for children by Mark-Anthony Turnage and directed by Katie Mitchell in the Linbury; an adaptation of Max Frisch’s play Count Oederland by Judith Weir and librettist Ben Power, a collaboration with Scottish Opera and Oper Frankfurt; a Main Stage commission with Deutsche Oper Berlin from German composer Georg Friedrich Haas based on John Fosse’s novel Morgon og Kveld (Morning and Evening) premiering at Covent Garden in November 2015; a new opera in Spring 2017 from Thomas Adès based on Buñuel’s film The Exterminating Angel with libretto by Tom Cairns, who also directs; another major Main Stage commission in Spring 2018; and an adaptation of Alice Through the Looking Glass by Unsuk Chin and librettist David Henry Hwang for the main stage in the 2018/19 Season.

2020

The Royal Opera will challenge leading European composers Kaija Saariaho (Finland), Mark-Anthony Turnage (UK), Luca Francesconi (Italy) and Jörg Widmann (Germany) to create large scale new operas. The vision is for four distinct operas, each one in part inspired by the composer’s response to a set of questions developed in collaboration with the philosopher Slavoj Žižek: “What preoccupies us today? How do we represent ourselves on stage? What are the collective myths of our present and future?”

Other commissions include work by Chris Mayo, Sasha Siem and Soumik Datta, as well as by digital artists Kleis&Rønsholdt and Tal Rosner. The current 2012/13 Season will see composers David Bruce and Elspeth Brooke take up positions as Composers in Residence.

As well as staged work, from 2013 The Royal Opera has developed new relationships with Guildhall School of Music & Drama and Sound and Music as well as collaborating in the future with all large-scale regional companies and working with mid-scale touring companies. Covent Garden will also invest in a programme of opera development including workshops and readings, both public and in-house.

Royal Opera House reveals new direction on eve of chief executive's departure
http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/2013/jan/10/royal-opera-house-new-season

 ガーディアンの記事の最後が面白かった。

Holten and Pappano declined to comment on the ongoing appointment process for a chief executive to replace Hall when he moves to the BBC in March. In addition, Pappano said rumours he was set to replace James Levine at the helm of the Metropolitan Opera were "complete bollocks".

 オペラの監督が2011年に代わり、昨年はロイヤル・バレエの監督が代わり、3月にトニィ・ホール氏がBBCに出戻りとなるこの時期に仮にパッパーノまで離れることになったら、かなり痛手だろう。いずれパッパーノは離れるだろうけど、この噂は噂のままであってほしい。

 ロイヤル・オペラ独自の新作オペラはけっこう聴いている。

テンペスト
http://loveandhatelondon.blog102.fc2.com/blog-entry-260.html

1984

ミノタウロ
http://loveandhatelondon.blog102.fc2.com/blog-entry-767.html

アナ・ニコル
http://loveandhatelondon.blog102.fc2.com/blog-entry-1333.html

 「ミノタウロ」は今月再演されるが、多分、行かない。積極的に観たいと思うのは「テンペスト」と「アナ・ニコル」。後者は、2014/15シーズンに再演の予定とのこと。

 「アナ・ニコル」の作曲者、ターネイジはアデスと比べるとかなり多作の様に思う。今年の初夏にサドラーズでの再演が決まっているマックグレガー作の「Undance」の音楽もターネイジ。木管楽器の重低音がリズミカルに使われていて面白い音楽だった。踊りも素晴らしかったので、未見の方にはお勧め。

 僕自身、新しいオペラを観るには少しばかりの勇気が必要だから、人に強要はしない。それに、リスクをとることの難しさは自分も常に感じていること。でも、話題を集める新作オペラを、特に初日に観に行くとこんなおまけがあるかもしれないので、試してみる価値は少しはあるかなと。

こんにちは。2020年までの計画を発表とは驚きました。バレエも同じように色々な企画をしてくれたらうれしいのですが…。
あ、でも新作ばかりもリスキーなので、眠っている過去の作品でおもしろいものを掘り起こすとか。
マクレガーとウィールドンの新作ばかりはちょっと…なので。

>眠っている過去の作品でおもしろいものを掘り起こすとか
 僕もこれは強く望みます。別のポストですが、ロビンスを上演するなら「コンサート」を選んでほしいです。アシュトンの「シンフォニック・ヴァリエイションズ」も舞台から遠ざかって長いです。

 リアム・スカーレットが公式に加わって、新作ももっと楽しめるようになると期待しています。
