TOSCA. A SYNOPSIS After the fall of Roman Republic the former consul of Rome Cesare Angelotti, who was imprisoned in the castle of Sant’Angelo, managed to escape. He comes to the church of Sant’Andrea della Valle, taking refuge in the chapel of his sister, Marchioness Attavanti. He meets his friend, Mario Cavaradossi, an artist, who is working on a painting of Saint Magdalene in the church. Marchioness Attavanti doesn’t know that Cavaradossi has been using her as a model. Cavaradossi is ready to help his friend; but just when the artist offers him his breakfast their conversation is interrupted by the arrival of Cavaradossi’s mistress, a famous singer Floria Tosca. Mario’s unusual behavior and uneasiness arouses her jealousy. Mario reassures her. When Tosca leaves the church, Cavaradossi suggests to Angelotti that he could hide the former prisoner on his villa. A cannon shot announces that Angelotti’s escape is discovered. Cavaradossi accompanies his friend to his house. In search for Angelotti, baron Scarpia, the chief of the secret police, comes to the church. The absence of the artist, the open gate of the Attavanti chapel, the empty food basket that was found in the chapel - all these signs persuade Scarpia of Cavara-dossi’s complicity. Scarpia discovers the amazing li-keliness between Angelotti’s sister and St. Magdalene, while his men find marchioness’s fan. Scarpia, who is secretly in love with Tosca, immediately realizes that he can get his rival out of the way - he is going to arrest Cavaradossi as Angelotti’s accomplice. When Tosca returns, Scarpia shows her the fan and arouses her jealousy and suspicions again. Tosca leaves in tears, furious at the thought that Cavaradossi has betrayed her; she is followed by two of Scarpia's agents. Seated in his room in Farneze palace, Scarpia is waiting for his agents and for Tosca. In Cavaradossi’s villa, his men could not find Angelotti. But the artist was arrested and brought to Scarpia. Cavaradossi refuses to reveal Angelotti’s hiding place, and Scarpia sends him to the torture room. When Tosca comes, she is forced to hear her lover’s cries of ag-ony; tormented by his groans, she finally confesses that Angelotti is hidden in the secret cave in the well in Cavaradossi's garden. Sciarone brings the news of Napoleon’s victory at Marengo. Cavaradossi, who has regained consciousness after tortures, is jubilant. Scarpia sends him to prison - the artist should be prosecuted by the next morning. When Cavaradossi is taken away, Scarpia tells Tosca that he can set him free for the price of Tosca’s love. Finally Toska agrees. But Scarpia can’t repeal Cavaradossi’s death sentence now, so he gives orders for the mock execution: the guns would be loaded with blank cartridges. While Scarpia writes a letter that would allow Tosca and Cavaradossi leave Rome, she notices a knife on the table and conceals it behind her back. And when Scarpia approaches her in triumph, she stabs him. Early in the morning, Cavaradossi is waiting for execution in the Castle of Sant’Angelo. The bells are ringing, and a shepherds’ song can be heard in a distance. An hour before his death, Cavaradossi writes a farewell letter to Tosca. Suddenly she herself appears with a safe-conduct and tells him the news. The lovers anticipate their future happiness. But first, there must be the execution... Tosca teaches Cavaradossi how to simulate his death. The soldiers come and prepare for the execution. The guns fire, Mario falls down and lies motionless, just as Tosca has advised him... After the soldiers have left, she calls her lover, then rushes to him and realizes that Scarpia has deceived her: Cavaradossi is dead. Suddenly she hears that Scarpia’s death has been discovered. Soldiers are coming to arrest her. Tosca runs to the parapet and throws herself down from the tower of the castle.

The story of the opera

Overture
A cheerful mood ata Czech country fair, with the folk dancing and singing, young couples meeting, weddings being arranged.

Act 1
Mařenka and Jeník want to marry. However, Mařenka’s father, Krušina, has other ideas. He wants Mařenka to marry a boy she has never met, Vašek, the son of Micha, who is a wealthy landowner. The marriage-broker Kecal is hired to broker the marriage between Mařenka and Vašek. Kecal is made aware of the relationship between Mařenka and Jeník, and becomes determined to break them up in order to facilitate the marriage of Mařenka with Vašek.

Act 2
Mařenka and Vašek meet each other by accident and, while Mařenka works out who Vašek is, on the other hand, Vašek is too much of a simpleton to realize who she is. Mařenka starts painting a picture of Vašek’s intended bride as a woman who would make his life a total misery if he should marry her. This turns Vašek off the idea of marrying his intended wife, and also makes him interested in this girl who obviously has his best interests at heart. Meanwhile, Kecal starts his campaign to pay off Jeník, so that Jeník will renounce his right to marry Mařenka. Kecal eventually reaches a price which Jeník finds agreeable, and Jeník agrees to sell the rights to his fiancée for 300 guilders. Jeník also specifies that this is on condition that Mařenka marries Mícha’s son. Since Kecal intends Mařenka to marry Vašek, so that he can get his money, he readily agrees. As soon as the contract is signed, the entire town repudiates Jeník.

Act 3
A travelling circus comes to town, and Vašek becomes entranced with the gypsy, Esmeralda. There is some trouble with one of the acts, and Vašek is persuaded to assist the circus. Mařenka is angry with Jeník for what he has done, and she angrily turns her back on him and agrees to marry Vašek. When both sets of parents meet Mařenka, the appearance of Jeník at the meeting results in the revelation that Jeník is the long-lost son of Mícha from his first marriage, and that Jeník had been hounded out of house and home by his stepmother, Háta (who is also Vašek’s mother). As a result of this revelation, the terms of the contract between Kecal and Jeník, whereby Jeník gave her up (on condition that Mařenka should marry the son of Mícha), allows Mařenka to marry either Jeník or Vašek. Mařenka chooses Jeník, and Kecal is left with the embarrassment of having paid Jeník 300 guilders in order for Jeník to give up the right to marry Mařenka, to Jeník, himself. At this time, a frightened child rushes in and exclaims that a bear has escaped from the circus. As everybody cowers, the bear wanders in and pulls off its head, revealing that it was just the immature Vašek disguised in a bear costume for the circus. Embarrassed, Háta drags Vašek off and the parents and the villagers congratulate the happy couple.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra & The Glyndebourne Chorus, Carlo Felice Cillario

Recorded live at Glyndebourne at one performance during June 1962.

The 2CD set is packaged as a 150 page hard bound book containing a full libretto translated into English, French and German along with a commissioned article about the opera, and synopsis in English, French and German.

Designed and Directed by Franco Zeffirelli.

Glyndebourne Opera has a history of trend setting and pioneering opera productions and Donizetti’s opera L’elisir d’amore is no exception. Popular in Donizetti’s own lifetime, L’elisir faded into relative obscurity until the 1890s when Caruso championed the role of Nemorino: his dedication and conviction were such that Covent Garden arranged a production of the opera in 1902. L’elisir was a personal favourite of Caruso’s, so much so that in 1920 he played Nemorino in his last appearance with the Metropolitan Opera. Almost 60 years later, in 1961, it was Glyndebourne who staged a production of L’elisir d’amore designed and directed by Franco Zeffirelli. Such was the success and acclaim for this production that Glyndebourne revived it in 1962, enhancing the production with the addition of the lively and capricious Mirella Freni.

As the press noted: ‘Her [Freni's] looks and her cantabile singing melt, so to speak, on the tongue, and she acts her teasing charades with Sergeant Belcore as if nothing were farther from her mind than cruelty.’ (The Times, August 1962) and ‘Mirella Freni, the sparkling new Adina, rightly allowed real tenderness to shine through vanity and caprice.’ (The Sunday Times, August 1962)

Mirella Freni was first engaged by Glyndebourne in 1960 (and sings Susanna in Glyndebourne’s own recording of Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro GFOCD00162).

Previously she had also performed at the opera house in Torino in the late 50s and sung with Netherlands Opera in 1959-60 season, but her international break and recognition came by virtue of her role as Adina in this 1962 production.

This recording, released here for the first time, precedes Freni’s EMI recording of L’elisir d’amore with Nicolai Gedda as Nemorino in a Rome Opera production by some 5 years. In this recording, Freni has a cast of equals around her. As the besotted Nemorino, Luigi Alva vividly portrays the wounded innocent with The Daily Telegraph noting in August 1962 that ‘Alva’s Nemorino is a wonderful combination of rustic clowning and exquisitely finished bel canto’, with Enzo Sordello a baritone voice big enough to fill a stadium, providing a fresh virile and bold Belcore. Conductor Carlo Felice Cillario enjoyed a 60 plus year career and is remembered for his masterful interpretations of Puccini, Verdi and Donizetti operas and stands as one of the most singer-friendly conductors of all time.
