Mid Wales Opera - Il Tabarro – Puccini

Mid Wales Opera presents Puccini’s passionate late masterpiece Il tabarro, or ‘The Cloak’. Set on the banks of the Seine, this one act opera tells the short story of the barge owner Michele who suspects his young wife Giorgetta of being unfaithful. Packed with side plots and characters bringing to life the sights and sounds of 1900s Paris, the opera reaches its dramatic conclusion when Michele unexpectedly catches his wife’s lover at the strike of a match. With alluring melodies and a fast-moving pace, Il tabarro sees the great opera composer at the very height of his powers.

MWO’s new production features 6 singers and 4 musicians, with a new English translation by Richard Studer and a new chamber arrangement by Jonathan Lyness. The opera will be followed by a second half continuing the Parisian theme with a mix of entertaining musical items featuring all of our talented singers and musicians.

Cyflwyna Opera Canolbarth Cymru orchestwaith hwyr Puccini, Il tabarro neu ‘The Cloak’. Stori fer yw’r opera un act hon, wedi’i gosodd ar lannau’r Seine, am berchennog cwch camlas o’r enw Michele, sy’n amau bod ei wraig, Giorgetta, yn bod yn anffyddlon. Mae’r opera’n llawn is-blotiau ac is-gymeriadau, a chyfeiriadau at olygfeydd a synau Paris yn y 1900au. Daw’r opera i ddiweddglo dramatig pan ddalia Michele gariad ei wraig yn annisgwyl ar daniad matsien. Gyda melodïau cyfareddol a thyndra cyffrous, mae Il tabarro yn dangos gwaith y cyfansoddwr gwych pan oedd ei allu ar ei anterth.

Mae cynhyrchiad newydd OCC yn cynnwys 6 canwr a 4 cerddor, gyda chyfieithiad newydd i’r Saesneg gan Richard Studer a threfniant siambr newydd gan Jonathan Lyness. Yn yr ail hanner, ar ôl yr opera, byddwn yn parhau â thema Paris gyda chymysgedd o eitemau cerddorol difyr gan ein holl gantorion a’n cerddorion dawnus.
