BRITTEN GLORIANA LIBRETTO PDF

In , an even finer version was mounted by Opera North, astutely directed by Phyllida Lloyd with gorgeous designs by Anthony Ward and Josephine Barstow as an unforgettable Elizabeth — a role she subsequently repeated on a definitive recording conducted by Charles Mackerras. At last, the point of the thing seemed to come into focus, unencumbered by either period flummery or postmodern gimmickry. Something about its significance remains opaque and locked in, and it will be interesting to see if Jones, the most forensic and imaginative of opera directors, has found the key. In Peter Grimes, Billy Budd and Death in Venice, this is embodied with an overtly homoerotic character, pitching an older man against an innocent boy; in Gloriana, it appears as the infatuation of an old woman for a handsome young man.

At last, the point of the thing seemed to come into focus, unencumbered by either period flummery or postmodern gimmickry. Something about its significance remains opaque and locked in, and it will be interesting to see if Jones, the most forensic and imaginative of opera directors, has found the key. In Peter Grimes, Billy Budd and Death in Venice, this is embodied with an overtly homoerotic character, pitching an older man against an innocent boy; in Gloriana, it appears as the infatuation of an old woman for a handsome young man.

But that pathetic old woman is also a great and noble queen, and dramatising that dichotomy presents a matchless opportunity to any full-blooded soprano, past her first flush of vocal youth but still capable of whacking it out and radiating regal charisma. Britten and Plomer see her in tragic light and shade — a creaking septuagenarian, bald and wrinkled underneath her flame-coloured wig and face-powder, capable of great kindness, gratitude and judiciousness, but also despotically vain, capricious, paranoid and even cruel.

Charged with knowledge of her own imminent and ineluctable mortality, she passes through a parade of pivotal moments of her royal career, presented cinematically, like a newsreel. The implicit question is posed: for what will she be remembered?

But at the Coronation, it must have seemed almost treasonably impertinent in its refusal to kowtow in golden compliment to a young queen and instead to remind her of the vanity and perils of her position.

Britten would later be accused of being a lickspittle courtier, but in Gloriana, he boldly tells his sovereign the bitter truth: one day, despite your power and glory, you must die.

Gloriana opens at the Royal Opera House on June Tickets: ; roh.
