Cavalleria Rusticana Šárka and in the Maestranza in Seville

They arrive in Seville, produced by the Teatro La Fenice in Venice, two short and very different operas, but, practically contemporary, integrate one of the most unique offers of the season in such an exceptional double program, that once again places the Teatro de la Maestranza in the forefront of national lyrical news. On one side, “Šárka” - absolute premiere in Spain- of Czech Leoš Janáček (1854-1928), It is a heroic opera in three acts composed in 1887 and “Cavalleria Rusticana”, de Pietro Mascagni (1863-1945), is a one-act verista drama premiered in 1890 which alludes to the tragic “code of honour” of the southern Italians.
Two works located in very distant creative hemispheres – bohemian romanticism and dramatic Italian verismo- what, but nevertheless, are linked in the acclaimed production of the Teatro La Fenice in Venice, presenting both titles in the penetrating vision of one of the most exciting Italian filmmakers of recent decades, Ermanno Olmi, Palme d'Or in Cannes for the endearing "The Tree of Zzuecos" (1978). Olmi faces the mythical story of “Šárka”, based on a 14th century Czech legend presented with the dark airs of Wagnerian Tetralogy against the Sicilian luminosity of Mascagni's drama.
