Bratislava, November 5 (TASR) – The SNP opera will be greeted on Wednesday, November 7, at the home screen of the successful English baritone Simon Keenliside as Rigolette on behalf of Giuseppe Verdi. TASR informed Izabela Pažitkova, Secretary of the SND.
Simon Keenliside, born in London, has won numerous prestigious awards for his exceptional performance, including Olivier Avard (2006), ECHO Klassik (2007) and the 2011 award for best vocalist.
Rigoletto and Don Giovanni belong to Simon Keenliside's symbols. The latest artistic engagements include the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the State Opera in Vienna, La Scala in Milan. In addition to the aforementioned scenes, he is a frequent guest at the Hamburg State Opera, Covent Garden in London, the Bavarian State Opera in Munich and other world festivals. Simon Keenliside did not play at major concert stages, he worked with many famous orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as the Czech Philharmonic under the baton of famous conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle, Edward Gardner, Christian Thielemanna, Ricardo Chailli or Richard Hickok. For the first time, Simon Keenliside will perform in Slovakia, in the SND Opera, produced by Verdi Rigoletto, directed by Martin Schuler, a prominent German creator, the main character of this opera drama.
Including Rigoletto's opera inspired by the drama Victor Hugo Giuseppe Verdi King is fun. The characters of the main actors so magnificently presented that he was censored before work and convicted the case because he was immorally unmanageable. Verdi works with the librettist, but without compromise, through censorship they passed through censorship and, instead of the sage king, assigned the role of a duke. Rigoletto is a court shuffle that assists his master Mantua in the love of adventure, not knowing that his beautiful daughter, Guild, will become a victim of a dueling desire.
Under the baton of Martin Leginus on November 7, in other roles, Lubica Vargicova (Gilda), Ludovit Ludha (Duke), Peter Mikulas (Sparafucile), Denis Hamarov (Maddalena), Jitka Sapara-Fischerova (Giovanna), Sergei Tolstov (Monterone) .
