"Lennart Bromander see a merger at the göteborg opera"
"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"The Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959) is a modern classic with a rich production in many areas. His operas have recently been a small renaissance in Sweden. Last autumn, Wermlandsoperan his The Greek Passion, the last week had his Comedy on a bridge, premiered in Malmö, and now is also his greatest opera, Julietta, from 1938 up to date."
"But David Radok, and the göteborg opera have limited themselves to under the title the Key of dreams, make three fragments from Julietta, mainly taken from the second act (of three)."
"the Composer compiled these fragments as a kind of business card to offer the radio in Paris, where he found himself fleeing from the germans, and they were issued only in 2007. Radok has chosen to compile the fragments with Jean Cocteau and Francis Poulencs famous monologue Vox humana, in which an abandoned woman by telephone trying to communicate with the man who left her."
"n”Julietta” is based on a surreal drama by Georges Neveux, if a man, Michel, who is seeking back to a city, where he three years earlier had a powerful experience with a woman, Julietta. The people in the city, including Julietta, however, has a difficult problem, their brains lack memory function."
"In the opera Julietta developed Michels dilemma alone minnesgod person among the forgetfulness of people to a game with dreams and illusions. I have seen Julietta abroad, an evocative, puzzling works, which works great as helaftonsopera."
"just To make the three fragments works worse. What Julietta is part of a context becomes the Key to the dreams, just fragments, and the link to the Vox humana seems a bit searched."
"if the break in the Vox humana is a cool uppskruvning of pulse and intensity. Radoks own setting is the same, spartan, beautiful, inspired by Vilhelm Hammershøi and his cool interiors with were backward people."
"In the case now the desperate woman, incredibly portrayed by Kerstin Avemo, which is also envisioned Julietta (nicely matched by Joachim Bäckström, Michel). Every little emotional tinge in the poor woman's replicas to be registered seismografiskt by Kerstin Avemo, and Poulencs music is objectively osentimental but burning känslostark."
"the Göteborg opera orchestra, Claire Levacher contribute in both works with fine klangsubtiliteter, but it is Kerstin Avemo in the Vox humana, which makes this operakvällen keen."
