Performance: Le Dernier Sorcier
Monica Yunus
Excerpts of Pauline Garcia Viardot's re-discovered 1867 operatic masterwork The Last Sorcerer (Le Dernier Sorcier) are performed by Camille Zamora, Monica Yunus, Krysty Swann, Adriana Zabala, Michael Slattery, Jorell Williams, and Myra Huang. 150 years ago, mezzo-soprano, composer, and vocal pedagogue Pauline Garcia Viardot wrote the salon opera The Last Sorcerer (Le Dernier Sorcier) using a libretto by her lover, the Russian novelist and playwright Ivan Turgenev. A chamber opera in two acts, this astonishingly beautiful work focuses on themes of power, progress, and the restoration of natural order - a true feminist eco-fable, 150 years ahead of its time. Viardot's original manuscript was held a private collection for over a century, and as such, the work essentially vanished without a trace. Re-discovered in 2011, the original manuscript was acquired by Harvard Library which subsequently gave permission to publish and record the world premiere of the work. Special thanks to Harvard University's Houghton Library.
