Vincenzo Bellini: La Sonnambula

Ana Durlovski, Luciano Botelho, Enzo Capuano, Helene Schneiderman, Catriona Smith, Motti Kastón
Staatsorchester Stuttgart
Gabriele Ferro

Premiered in 1831 in Milan, the opera La Sonnambula by Vincenzo Bellini was a global success for the bel canto genre. In this outstanding production, which was voted best production of the year in 2012 by Opernwelt magazine, the directing duo of Jossi Wieler and Sergio Morabito address the dormant and profound questions of our civilisation and its myths that trouble the eponymous sleepwalker. Together with set designer Anna Viebrock they unfold the story of the young orphan girl Amina and the young, wealthy landowner Elvino in the confined reality of an impoverished, remote Swiss alpine village.
