Moses Marin will be Pyrrhus in “Ermione” Y “Goffredo” in Arminda at the Wildbad Rossini Festival


The tenor from Granada Moses Marin, one of the young voices with the greatest projection in our country, will star this summer in a double debut at the Belcanto Opera Festival 'Rossini in Wildbad' with two of the most demanding roles in the repertoire: on the one hand he will be Pirro in the opera Ermione, under the musical direction of Antonino Fogliani and staged by Jochen Schönleber, the days 16 Y 23 of July. further, will play Goffredo in a concert version of another Rossinian drama, Armida, under the musical direction of José Miguel Pérez Sierra, that can be heard every day 15 Y 20 of July. Both operas will be performed by the Krakow Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir.

The two titles will be previewed at the Royal Opera Festival in Krakow (Armida the 3 July and Ermione the 10). Premiered at the San Carlo Theater in Naples on 27 March 1819, Ermione is today considered a stroke of genius by Rossini, although it suffered a resounding and painful failure at its premiere. The little success of this drama set in the Trojan War was due in part to its tragic ending, that was not to the taste of the public at the time and in part to the music, innovative and revolutionary for its time. The play, which features a libretto by Andrea Leone Tottola based on Andromache by Jean Racine, was not recovered until its revival in 1987 at the Pesaro festival. It is an opera that requires top-level singers: Moisés will debut with the role of Pirro, son of Achilles and king of Epirus; He will be accompanied by Serena Farnocchia as Ermione and Patrick Kabongo as Orestes.

The stage direction is provided by Jochen Schönleber, artistic director of the Bad Wildbad festival. Meanwhile, Armida had its first performance at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples on 11 November 1817 and features a libretto by Giovanni Schmidt based on scenes from Torquato Tasso's epic poem Jerusalem Delivered., inspired by events of the First Crusade. Armida requires six tenor roles - and one bass baritone- and it is also one of Rossini's most difficult titles. Moisés Marín will share a scenario with Ruth Iniesta as Armida, the only female role in the play. At the Krakow preview, Moses plays Goffredo and also Ubaldo, a whole vocal tour de force for the man from Granada, which will be supported by the solid leadership of Miguel Pérez-Sierra. Both Armida and Ermione will be recorded on CD and DVD for the Naxos Label's Rossini Complete Edition.
