MENOTTI, Gian Carlo 1911-2007

Book Description G. Schirmer [PN 42369], New York, London, 1950. Folio. Original publisher's black illustrated wrappers printed in red and white. [i] (title), [i] (copyright), [i] (notes on first performance), [i] (characters and acts), 291, [i] (blank) pp.Wrappers slightly worn, creased, and stained. "Menotti's versatile dramatic skills, as director, librettist and composer, brought him a contract from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to write film scripts. Although his scripts were never filmed, one contained the seeds of his first full-length opera, The Consul, considered by many to be his greatest work. In keeping with Menotti's preference for contemporary subjects, the opera tells the story of a family trying to obtain a visa to leave a police state. Music and stage techniques combine to communicate strongly and directly."The New York première at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on 15 March 1950 was a great success and performances continued there for about eight months. The work received the Pulitzer Prize and the Drama Critics' Circle Award. It has been translated into 12 languages and has been performed in over 20 countries. With The Consul and his next two operas, Menotti seemed at the height of his powers and of public acclaim."[Menotti] was sensitive to new musical techniques that would serve his dramatic purpose. [such as] a high, sustained dissonant chord in The Consul as Magda turns on the gas stove to commit suicide." Bruce Archibald and Jennifer Barnes in Grove Music Online. Seller Inventory # 27477

Book Description New York G. Schirmer, 1950. Quarto 9" x 12". 291 pages bound in cloth retaining original printed wrappers. Signed by Menotti, Thomas Schippers the conductor, and twelve members of the cast of the first British production presented by Laurence Olivier at the Cambridge Theatre in February 1951. Together with 9 page programme for this production. Composed in 1950 to his own libretto, The Consul was Menotti's first full-length opera winning the Pulitzer Prize for Music. Opening in Philadelphia followed by Broadway rather than an opera house and with its subject, the plight of political refugees thwarted by bureaucracy, it achieved a rare combination of critical and popular success running for an astonishing 269 performances. Many cast members of the Broadway production appeared in the British premier and have signed this copy of the score. They include Patricia Neway who achieved great critical acclaim for her role of Magda, Marie Powers, Leon Lishner, Gloria Lane, and Francis Monachino. Seller Inventory # GW005
