"Roland veut retrouver Angélique qui pleure Medoro, le chevalier qu'elle aimait. Ce dernier est rendu à la vie par les incantations d'Alcine que le paladin Astolfo tente en vain de séduire. Alcine, pour sa part, ravit Ruggiero à l'amour de Bradamante. Quant à Roland, il est dédaigné par Angélique et, perdant la raison, se laisse aller à une folie destructrice. Dans le temple d'Hécate, il jette bas la statue de Merlin et provoque l'écroulement de l'édifice. Angélique et Medoro sont épouvantés mais Roland retrouve la raison, leur pardonne et bénit leurs noces."

L'Africaine by Giacomo Meyerbeer( Visual )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Discover Meyerbeer's L'Africaine in Leo Muscato's production by La Fenice in Venice – one of the world's greatest opera houses. A five-act opera composed by Giacomo Meyerbeer after Eugène Scribe's French libretto, L'Africaine has been influenced by the German harmony, the Italian melody but also showcases French features, such as the rhythm, the visual effects of the lyric tragedy and the sensational stories of the light opera L'Africaine was premiered on the 28th of April 1865, one year after the composer's death. It was staged at the Paris Opera House and was critically acclaimed, both from the audience and from the press. The final of the first act, the first part of the baritone's aria "Fille des rois," the Indian March, the tenor's aria "Pays merveilleux" could have only been composed by a great musician. Under the baton of Emmanuel Villaume – who conducted such prestigious orchestras as the Royal Philharmonic of London, the NHK Orchestra, the Chinese Orchestra (during the Olympic Games in 2008) – the orchestra of La Fenice accompanies Jessica Pratt, Veronica Simeoni and Gregory Kunde singing the parts of Inès, Sélika and Vasco de Gama. The Teatro La Fenice celebrates the 150th anniversary of Giacomo Meyerbeer's death and offers the perfect opportunity to rediscover the composer's masterpiece in Leo Muscato's spectacular staging
