MISSA SOLEMNIS

.

After the season which saw a number of successful opera and ballet premiers, the Bellas Artes will perform Missasolemnis in D major, Op. 123, a piece which has a special place in Beethoven’s opus. This is the second mass by Beethoven (the first one in C major, Op. 86) and although it is dedicated to the Archbishop of Austria Rudolf Reiner, it is believed to be the expression of Beethoven’s deepest spiritual feelings. SrbaDinic with the Bellas Artes choir and orchestra will present to the audience this highly complex piece in all its beauty in view of religious value, personal Beethoven’s feelings and high level of score interpretation. He wrote it for six years and being a serious challenge for the performers it can but rarely be seen on concert repertoires, and even rarer in churches.

Inspired by the dedication of the piece “May that what comes from a heart reach hearts” (“VomHerzen, mögeeswieder, zuHerzengehen!”) SrbaDinic and Bellas Artes ensemble will convey this message in the language of Beethoven’ssublime interpretative style.

BALLET MANON

.

The story about Manon by Antoine Francois Prevost from 1731 was inspirational to many artists. In 1884 Jules Massenet composed an opera Manon, to be outshone by Giacomo Puccini with his opera which he named Manon Lescaut in 1893. A century later Manon came to life again this time as ballet. Artistic director of Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan staged choreography on the the music by Jules Massenet which lived to a great success. This year it is on the repertoire of Teatro de Bellas Artes.
Under the leadership of Srba Dinic, ballet ensemble Compañía Nacionalde Danza and Orquesta del Teatro de Bellas Artes will attune their movements and phrases to show the audience that literature, ballet and music can become one. Manon is the last ballet in this season so the whole ensemble is particularly inspired to perform the story which has lived through centuries in different artistic forms.

SRBA DINIC – General Music Director

.

At the press conference today the management of Braunschweig Opera presented their new general music director – Srba Dinic. He is the first Serbian conductor in this function in Germany. He is already on familiar terms with the orchestra and the ensemble with two symphonic concerts and Andrea Chenier Opera under their belts. After months of negotiations involving 15 candidates, Dinic stood out as a leader whose experience and knowledge made him the most trustworthy with the ensemble. Some lavish opera productions are planned for the next seasons, including Don Carlos, Tosca, Elektra and symphonic music with select soloists. The first encounter with the audience, Gala Concert, is to be on the 5th June in Braunscheweig city park. Dinic will remain in the position of Generalmusikdirektor for the next five years. Plans are grand and ambitious, and everybody agrees on one point: the maestro will live up to the expectations of his faithful listeners and provide opportunities for budding artists and young audience to come closer in this most beautiful art.


Cosi fan tutte

.

Opera lovers have a new reason to visit the Palacio de Bellas Artes. Srba Dinic with the orchestra and choir will perform Mozart’s opera Cosi fan tutte, a piece about love, fidelity and fickleness of human feelings. The director Mauricio Garcia Losano will stage the story whose topic and comic plots from real life make it popular in the present time. Music is clearly the most valuable part of this opera. Mozart wrote it in his mature age and it is the third opera which he composed for libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte. Their joint work made this opera the very pinnacle of the opera buffa genre containing merry and comic scenes, but also a satire of social relations and customs. All these elements will be musically demonstrated by Srba Dinic with his ensemble and the following singers as soloists: Silvia dalla Benetta, Isabel Stüber Malagamba, Patricia Santos, Orlando Pineda, Armando Piña and Jesus Suaste.
