9783822870624: The Gran Teatro La Fenice (Evergreen Series)

How does one do justice to a building that is far more than its constituent materials, a building that is a vessel of myth, an embodiment of the dreams and legends of a city and a culture? The living reputation of the Gran Teatro La Fenice was assured from its opening in 1792. It was destined to be exceptional. Unbelievably ornate, an artwork in its own right, it has played host to the widest possible range of creative activity. From the operas of Verdi and Rossini to the postmodern dance theatre of Pina Bausch, with two centuries of music along the way, it has seen it all and made it great. And the huge fire of 1996 that levelled the building once again is just another step on the journey. The Phoenix will rise again, as before. And this volume, magnificent itself, explains how and why. It offers a full history of the Gran Teatro in words and pictures, with stills from the great productions, set designs, elevations, stories of the celebrities, singers and composers, alongside stunningly reproduced old engravings and up to the minute reportage on the recent blaze. A book world that will endure.

Book Description Evergreen, Hohenzollernring, Koln, 1999. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Illustrated by Arici, Graziano (illustrator). This opera house was built for the city of Venice under the architectural guidance of Giannantonio Selva. It opened on May 17, 1792 under the name La Fenice - the phoenix. As optimistic a name it may have been, it was to bode ill for the Gran Teatro. In the night from December 12 - 13, 1836 the interior of the opera house was completely gutted by fire. In less than a year, La Fenice had risen from the ashes once again to become a leading institution in the world of music for more than a century and a half. Then, in 1996, during the nights of January 29-30, catastrophe struck once more and, within a short time, La Fenice was all but razed. This publication charts two centuries of musical history at the Gran Teatro La Fenice, from the great operas of the nineteenth century to contemporary music and modern dance, from Rossini and Verdi to Ligeti and Pina Bausch. It is the first complete chronicle of all the operas, concerts and festivals held at the Gran Teatro, and also includes a detailed architectural history, with many illustrations plans, sketches and period engravings. It pays homage not only to the past, but above all to the spirit of hope infusing the current reconstruction on what is surely one of the world's most beautiful opera houses. Printed on heavy paper. The book and jacket are new, but due to the weight the jacket has sustained a few tears. There is a small fold with two tiny tears at the bottom back; a 1" tear at the spine top, and the corners are lightly worn. In a protective cover, this book is over 5 1/2 lbs.; Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 002507
