Does anyone know if there's a full length video of Il Barbiere from ROH - the one with Joyce DiDonato in a wheelchair? I pre-programmed the TV to record it from Mezzo here the other day but the recording stopped in the middle of Cessa di piu resistere and I didn't realize before I watched it back... it's so annoying to have it ALMOST complete. meh.:(

I don't know how you guys are finding these, but a good way is with google video search:

1. Go to http://www.google.ca/videohp?hl=en

2. Search for video, ie. "Tosca".

3. You'll see it returns a bunch of short excerpts. Boo! Click on "Long" duration on the left sidebar.

4. Enjoy full-length Toscas.

As a tip, you can search easily for complete operas on youtube by typing the name of the opera followed by a comma and then the word long
For example, typing "die zauberflote, long" in the search box (without quotes) gives you these results (http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=die+zauberflote%2C+long&oq=die+zauberflote%2C+long&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_nf=1&gs_l=youtube-psuggest.3...104985.109273.0.109423.36.23.0.0.0.3. 174.2029.11j11.22.0.)

I'm really surprised at the number of full productions for virtually every opera I've tried. Of course audio quality will vary and this will not show results for operas split into segments smaller than 20 minutes, but those are almost more trouble than they are worth in my opinion.

Oh wow, so we've been promoting material that violates copyrights? I thought YouTube clips were under fair use licenses.

The situation is more complicated from that, but only from Youtube's perspective. The honus is on them to enforce copyright, not for those linking to youtube clips to verify for themselves that the material provided has obtained the necessary permissions from all appropriate parties. That is, from a legal and moral standpoint there is no issue with a 3rd party such as one of us linking to material hosted on youtube.

Schigolch
April 23rd, 2012, 11:25 AM
After a long experience in Opera forums (close to eight years now), I think the only possible issue for us would be if we are providing ourselves copyrighted material, or linking to sites with a 'doubtful' pedigree such as AvaxHome and the like.

With youtube, there is no such problem. If they find something is copyrighted material, they will delete it themselves. In the unlikely case that someone register a complaint with us, we can edit the link in our site ourselves, and that's the end of the issue.

rgz
April 23rd, 2012, 04:28 PM
OK, then. I suppose, since we're not providing the material, which is already there for anybody to see; we're merely linking to it.
But wasn't this exactly what I was saying when I put mp3 sound tracks recovered from YouTube on the portal and someone said I should only keep those in public domain, more than 50 years old?

At that point, the problem is that you are the one "making available" the files. If the day after you stripped the audio and uploaded it, Youtube had received a takedown order for that file odds are you would have no idea in all likelihood. To further complicate the matter, let's say you stripped the audio from a video clip you personally had uploaded to youtube so you are aware when/if YT gets a takedown notice for the video clip. It's still problematic to host the audio yourself -- since for the video clip you've uploaded it to youtube, they are the ones who bear responsibility (though, should the clips you choose to upload continually face takedown notices, they may disable your YT account). For a clip you upload to your own hosting you are paying for, that is considered as you personally making it available.

And copyright is longer than 50 years (which is unfortunate and depressing -- write your congressperson!) so to be safe I think you have to go back 85 years.

Situation is different with torrents as well since, by their very nature, when you download it you are simultaneously uploading it to others, thus you are the one 'making available' the file. That is, it's technically not illegal (or much less illegal, one might say) to download an infringing file for various reasons -- the real punishment comes from uploading / transferring it to others since you can not verify if they have a legal right to possess that file.

edit: It is in fact possible to challenge removal of any clips you upload to YT, should the copyright holder try to get them removed. Fair Use does give the average person a legitimate excuse to be providing copywritten files in some cases, though it's still not something that I would do with my own hosting. As an example, the original clip on YT of Rachele Gilmore's Met debut as Olympia was removed - likely due to a takedown notice. I had previously downloaded it so I uploaded it on my own YT account. It was then challenged, I submitted a response citing (iirc) sections 1, 3, and 4 of the Fair Use Act and it was restored to my account and I have had no problems since.

edit 2: If anyone's Youtube clips are challenged, you can try using the response I sent (just including the body of my counter-notification, not the fiddly details about the specific video and such. Obviously tailor it as you see fit).



Per the 4 guidelines of FairUse here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use I believe the usage of the clip is allowed due to #1 (clearly non-profit and educational), #3 (approx 5% of the entire work), and #4 (segment listed not commercially available / makes entire work more desirable in context)

The first part of #4 may not apply to any clips you upload, #3 will need the percentage recalculated (and if it's over 10%, I'd guess it isn't a legitimate reason).
My guess is most people don't fight takedown notices and just let their video be removed and that regardless of the legitimacy of one's counter-notification, it is likely to succeed because for the copyright holder to follow up requires far more work than sending out essentially automated takedown notices which likely require very little actual work on their part. So if you get a takedown notice just fight it, you have nothing to lose and takes 10-15 minutes to do.

Thérèse is an opera in two acts, written by Jules Massenet in 1907.

Thérèse, living at the time of the French Revolution, is torn between her lover, a nobleman that want to take her into exile, and her husband, a Girondist. When the husband is to be killed at the guillotine, she decides to share his fate.

This is not a masterpiece, of course, but it's a nice little opera. There is a version with Agnes Baltsa and Francisco Araiza, complete in youtube:

Albéric Magnard was one of those French composers that became imbued with Wagner between the end of the 19th century, and the beginning of the 20th.

Guercoeur was perhaps his best known opera. Written between 1897 and 1900, was premiered posthumously at the Paris Opéra in 1931, reconstructed by Guy Ropartz after Magnard himself was killed by German soldiers at the onset of WWI, and his home destroyed by fire.

What we ask of music, first and last, is that it communicate experience - experience of all kinds, vital and profound at its greatest, amusing or entertaining at another level. But communication is two-sided - vital and profound communication makes demands also on those who are to receive it... demands in the sense of concentration, of genuine effort to receive what is being communicated.

In his own words, Rued Langgaard considered his 1923 opera, Antikrist, as a philosophical-religious drama about the decline and spiritual fall of Western civilization. In fact, there is almost no plot, and certainly no drama, in this opera, that consists basically of several monologues and dialogues, with little more action between the Prologue, when the Antichrist is sent to the World, to the final scene, with the defeat and destruction of the Antichrist.

Altough Langgaard tried to get several theaters interested in performing the opera during his lifetime, it was not until more than forty years after his death, that the Antikrist was finally staged in Austria, sung in German. (the Danish State radio also broadcasted a performance in the 1980s).

I've steered clear of buying this, as I've read negative reviews. Send it back for a refund, HC!

But seriously, I like the fact that you've been experimenting a lot. In the past you used to be a lot more set on your ways (Baroque, Baroque, and more Baroque) and while as you know I love Baroque too, I'm an omnivore opera lover, and I think there are advantages in broadening one's exposure, exploring contemporary opera, etc. You know, contemporary music grows on you; strange, unfamiliar, challenging at first, but once you get into it you discover that it can be quite beautiful and satisfying.

This is a commercially unavailable telecast that I acquired from a grey market dealer and which I did my best to improve. I spent three months last year creating the English subtitles, making use of a public domain translation and following closely a copy of a Kalmus vocal score. The Russian subtitles are a translation of my own subs and were prepared by an internet friend who runs the website http://sub-opera.narod.ru.

Anton Rubinstein - The Demon (1960)

with custom English subtitles

This is a classic 1960 abridged version made for Soviet television. It features the incomparable Georg Ots (arguably the supreme interpreter of this role and who was clearly made up to resemble the Demon of Mikhail Vrubel's famous paintings) and Sergei Lemeshev. As the film contains no credits, there is some uncertainty as to who sang the role of Tamara. Some sources list Irina Arkhipova (I am certain this is incorrect), whereas an uploader of this same video (sans subtitles) to youtube claims that the part is sung by Olga Kashevarova. If so, then it is an unknown young actress miming her voice (Kashevarova would have been 55 in 1960).

The film is directed by Vitali Golovin, who would make "Dubrovsky" with Lemeshev and his wife Vera Kudryavtseva a year later (a project that I am currently working on).

Anton Rubinstein - The Demon (2003)

with custom English subtitles

This is an in-house video of a 2003 performance by the Latvian National Opera. While certainly not as truncated as the 1960 telefilm, there are innumerable cuts, some extensive (for example, the mid-section of the opening choral prelude, all of the ballet music, the last scene in Act III, the introduction to Act IV, etc.), others relatively brief (and rather arbitrary and unnecessary). This made it a real challenge to subtitle, as I frequently got lost in the vocal score.

The original video contains a synopsis (in Latvian) prior to each act. I translated these into English, as well (admittedly, the English subs go by very quickly here, as I was trying to keep pace with the Latvian).

Both Samsons Izjumovs and Kristine Opolais are mesmerizing in their roles.

In fact, I have been doing a lot of digging around on the internet to no avail trying to see if a video exists of any of these. "Oceana" and a couple of others have been staged within the last 20 years, so it's possible. I'm currently awaiting an interlibrary loan of the Bongiovanni cd of this same production of "La Falena" (the only extant recording, apparently) as it contains an English translation of the libretto (according to worldcat.org: "Program notes in Italian with English translation, and text by Silvio Benco in Italian with English translation (85 p.), inserted in container). I have the libretto to "Nozze istriane" (the Bongiovanni cd is supposed to contain a translation of this, as well), but I am unable to find ANY of the other librettos online, in Italian or any other language. Nor can I find scans of the vocal scores (except for "Nozze istriane"). However, a book of five libretti was published recently, but in Italian only. Nevertheless, I'd like to get a copy.

Has this been posted already? In any case, it is not in the Index (Nat, have you been updating the index?)

The 1978 color remake for TV of the original NBC black-and-white film of Menotti's Amahl and the Night Visitors filmed in Israel is available complete on YouTube with the great Teresa Stratas who does a phenomenal job as the Mother. The Philharmonia Orchestra London is conducted by Jesus Lopes-Cobos. Boy soprano Robert Sapolsky does a decent job as Amahl. The three kings are very good.

This American classic is of course well known to everybody (being it the most performed American opera), but if you don't know it, it is very enjoyable. It is sung in clear English but the libretto is also available [here (http://www.kareol.es/obras/amahl/acto1.htm)].

There are six parts, less than one hour for this one act opera. I'm posting the first one, and it is easy to get the other five just by searching.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhOkc-vc1Ac

One of the most beautiful parts is the ensemble "Have you seen a child the color of wheat..." which is towards the end of the third part. The famous Shepherds chorus is in part four.

The dancing interlude is curious because for such a pious opera, the girl dancing it is darn sexy! Around 3'50" in part four. Not to forget that Teresa Stratas is a very yummy mom.

Also notice the lovely mother-son duet at the end, "Don't forget to wear your hat" in part six.

Parts 5 and 6 have a problem of audio-video synchrony. Still, this is a very good film (rather dark image, though). Singing and acting are first rate. Highly recommended, A.

Paul Hindemith - Mathis der Maler (1994)

with English subtitles

This is the 1994 telecast filmed only days before the Gran Teatre del Liceu burnt to the ground (perhaps it was the ghost of Hindemith enraged that almost the entire 6th Tableau is cut from the performance, amounting to about 40 minutes of music).

The original video is of very poor quality and contained Spanish hardsubs (i.e. they are part of the video and cannot be removed).

When I did this project a couple years ago, I opted to overlay the English subs in a solid black border on top of the Spanish. The size of the text is also rather large. As such, the video is even uglier than it already was; but the English subs are at least easy to read and add greatly to a comprehension of the opera for those who speak neither German nor Spanish.

Since then, better quality videos of this same performance have come to light, so I may re-visit this in future. There have been other productions of this opera in recent years (e.g. in Paris) so hopefully a video of one of these will surface.

Carl Nielsen - Saul and David (1986)

with custom English subtitles

This is the 1986 revival by the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen. The video comes from a murky, badly encoded DVD that I acquired from a grey market dealer. I did my best to improve upon it, starting with the contrast which was so low that scarce any details could be seen. There was a ten second gap in the audio near the beginning of the opera. I remedied this by substituting the exact section of music taken from an audio recording. Not the best solution, but it works. See if you can identify where it is.

The original video contains hardcoded Danish subtitles. I opted to overlay the English subs in a solid black bar over these Danish subs.

This is a wonderful production and it is a pity that it is not commercially available. The Danish baritone Leif Roar is especially impressive here.

Sono davvero la donna piú felice della terra. Mi sono capitate un sacco
di disgrazie, dunque, facciamo il punto;
uno, mi muore il marito in un naufragio;
due, mi brucia la casa in un incendio;
tre, si brucia pure tutto il paese...

Così fan tutte from the L'Opéra de Lyon.

Stefano Montanari conducts l'Orchestre et le choeur de l'Opéra de Lyon.
Directed by Adrian Noble.

Fiordiligi: Maria Bengtsson
Dorabella: Tove Dahlberg
Guglielmo: Vito Priante
Ferrando: Daniel Behle
Despina: Elena Galitskaya
Don Alfonso: Lionel Lhote


I quite enjoyed this, alternate ending and all. Singing is overall very good, Montanari's orchestra is vivid. Some very fast tempi (that's probably the fastest Soave sia il vento I've ever heard), but it doesn't spoil the experience.
Stage direction is brilliant at times. I love the asthma attack during Smanie implacabile, it's just so... in the music.
But then I often fall for the Dorabellas, I find the character so relatable...

Not to mention Daniel Behle's wonderfully awkward dancing. And the Per Pieta. Goodness!

Askel what do you think....
Kaufmann was magnificent vocally but this production was weak overall for me, the ending especially under played and visually dull compared to other modern versions like the Lenhoff withopp KF Vogt as Lohengrin

I haven't had a chance to watch it yet. I've downloaded it and will watch it when I've finished my music history exam, which is rather more important. At leas for me. I will try and write something somewhat coherent sometime late next week.

Thanks, I guess. Why should we not? We spent money to acquire it. We expected standards. That production was of a bunch of strange looking folks in an unwashed public toilet (which you most likely would not use for your relief even if you were urgent). Fine if we have multiple versions of Genoveva available. But at the moment, that is the only version available on DVD/Blu-ray out of a limited number on any medium.

I know it's a concert performance, but they could have made a little more effort. Still, musically it's very good. Musetta, sung by Valentina Naforniţă, almost steals the show. She won Cardiff 2011, she's on my singers to watch list now.

Very impressive is the silence after the end. The conductor (yes, it's Mr. Garanca) slowly lowers his hands, and the fantastic audience understands the need for silence. Everyone stays in that sad moment for quite some time, after that a well deserved standing ovation.
