Enfin, je suis ici – Jules Massenet
Rounding out the week of Opernfest Prague 2022, Anna Trombetta sings Cinderella’s third act aria, Enfin, je suis ici (Finally, I’m here) from the opera Cendrillon (1899) by Jules Massenet. Cinderella recounts to her Fairy Godmother how she raced through the streets, terrified, to make it home before the clock struck midnight, taking great care that no one should see her.
Conductor: Jaroslva Kyzlink The performance took place on April 10th at the Divadlo na Vinohradech in Prague, Czech Republic.
Erwartung Op. 2 No. 1 – Arnold Schoenberg
From the incredibly sensuous cycle Op. 2, composed by Arnold Schoenberg in 1899, Erwartung (Anticipation) depicts a surreal scene of a man in the forest, his reflection in the lake being illuminated by the moon, and a woman’s hand beckoning to him from a red villa nearby.
Performed as part of Anna’s Master Recital, Justice in Song, at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in 2021, David Bollen accompanies on the piano. Visit Anna’s Youtube page for more videos!
