The best operas overtures for a girl like me.

First part.

By Laura Stephanie Villamil Martínez.

How to start? I really do not know! Hahaha. I have listened to so much classical music that I no longer know which is the best musical piece but something that I have listened to, with much attention and appreciation, are the beautiful works or pieces that open up to an even greater show: What we all know as operas overtures.
Here I only write a small part of what I think regarding great emotions that are at the beginning of many more written and / or composed by beings who were inspired by facts of their life or readings of other great teachers in literature and who helped " unintentionally ”to these composers to grow even more ...

1.      Overture CARMEN, George Bizet.

Pure blast by God! I sincerely believe that Bizet was happy, ecstatic, excited, etc. Because he wanted to express what he felt when writing this famous opera and when he started with an explosive, joyous, lively and fun overture, a spirit full of positivity and creativity that exploded in this opera was noted; not only with the overture, but also with his arias "Habanera", "La fleur que tu m'avais jetée" and "Toreador" is that he decided to do his best musical and operatic work.

I'm just saying that this overture is the best for an opera full of passion, romance, energy and pain.

2.      Overture THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

If there's one thing I agree with musical historians: Mozart was a child trapped in the body of an adult. A harmonious, playful melody, full of fun, magic, color and beauty through a vibrant, fast and exciting sound that even makes me smile remembering the adventures of Figaro for the mere fact of scolding his boss; Mozart described himself through his music as a childish being, some ridiculous, but who always found genius in everything he saw and heard. His intellect never rested despite being "an inner child" and that is reflected in this overture so full of fun, optimism, elegance and revolution (you know what I mean).

I will always want to hear this "boy" in this great opening.

3.      Overture THE BARBER OF SEVILLE, Gioacchino Rossini.

I keep saying the same thing: Rossini was the best composing operas bufas because he knew the type of music for these texts full of humor and everyday philosophy, he was a man who thought about the lives of others, took him to musicalize in a fun way and let others will enjoy it; With this overture he left that he was not as serious a composer as others, with this work he opened space for the opera buffa and took it to his altars.

Of course Mozart had left it open but Rossini left it very well put and he had also exposed his thought with this single overture: the most common can be shown in public and be applauded for it.

Mi sento sola.

I do not know what to do,
I don't have a way to go,
My mind is wandering
And I have nowhere to go.

I feel alone,
A huge hole in me
I'm feeling it
Now and here.

I feel strange,
A rare bug
You want
A strange good.

I do not know what to do,
I'm stranded
And with my mind
really spoiled.

I feel lost
I have no guide
And I will continue like this
Until the end of my days.

The tenors with the highest notes I've heard (2).

      Luciano Pavarotti.

"The Italian tenor of the time": strong, demanding, emotional and exciting. The first time I heard it, I was very attracted to how he sang: a powerful way to reach a C5 without demanding, went from a simple character to another more powerful-demanding without difficulty and that, for me, will always be admiring.

      Juan Diego Flórez.

He doesn't surprise me either: a light voice that sounds fragile to me and when it goes up (as in ah mes amis!) It leaves me dumbfounded, cheerful, excited and happy. From Verdi to Bellini, a sublime, complex voice that goes up and down with ease and very well perfected for each character to play (Don Ramiro and / or Tonio).

       Javier Camarena.

Did you think he would stay outside? I do, but I listened to him as Don Ramiro-Count Almaviva and Tonio and he left me perplexed with his powerful chest, simple, simple, clear and friendly; He plays very well with his roles, is chameleonic, in the majority they are comedic roles or with a lot of charisma and, therefore, he reaches a full tenor level.

We will continue with this list because there are many treasures to listen and I will...

Un cuore traditore.

How could i fall in love
of a man without equal?
How could tangled me
a heart with cruelty?

How could i fall
before a being like him?
A tyrant
That took advantage of my good.

Is love like that?
Or did he give it?
For everything I've seen,
For him I have become like that.

doesn't even respect
what one feels for him,
he is a cold man
And without conscience.

He doesn't feel love
I never felt his heart
because is empty
and without any reason.

I will always regret
of what my heart feels
for a man without sanity
and without any mind.

Goodbye Life,
has taken you out of me
and it has always taken me
To my pure end.

The Tenors with the highest notes I've heard (1).

Actually, I never thought that he would be the first on this list but when I heard a F5 several times I was stunned, excited, happy, scared and terrified (I thought it was going to damage the voice but it wasn't like that hahaha) a chameleonic tenor, harmonious and independent (did not stay with one or two composers); an explosive, fixed voice that knew how to blend well with the aria that it was his turn to sing and in the language that it was, really a calm but explosive voice at the same time.
  • Alfredo Germont.
  • Fausto.
  •  Rodolfo
  • Duque de Mantua.
  • Werther.

This one does not surprise me: apart from an attractive bearing, his powerful, fragile, forceful and exquisite voice made him one of the best and most complete tenors in history; He, in all musical aspects, complemented each character very well, stood out in all vocal and musical fields; It has been seen by many as "an exquisite and excellent vocal technique."

  • Manrico
  • Radames
  • Mario Cavaradossi
  •  Dick Johnson
  • Canio

Horrors (1).

There was a princess
whose sanity and beauty
bewitched every man
that with his eyes he saw her.

Pure as water,
beautiful as the sun,
Sweet as sugar
And with a beautiful voice.

One day she gets lost
in the depth of the snow,
fear went through
to the depths of his heart.

Then see a path,
she is guided by destiny
even a sad, forgotten
And huge castle.

It was black as night,
suspicious even at the tip,
The princess wanted to enter
To the dark place.

Fear left her alone,
now was the emotion
for touring the place
And what to explore.

Said the princess
but her voice sounded
empty and hollow

She climbed some stairs,
a very beautiful plant,
of pure gold and marble
where she reflected.

Her steps were heard
for an alien creature
that had been fixed
in the beautiful princess ...

Le désiré.

So many stabs
How could you stand them?
You are truly admirable
because I don't know how many hits to count.

They turned off your soul,
They didn't know how to love you
He saw you only with eyes
And never with the soul.

It was very hard for you
see lose "your lives"
while those of others
Yes, they would.

You let yourself beat
and just back off
but you proved
Your effectiveness in doing.

You are to admire,
your life was a "mountain",
went up and down
But never in a tailspin.

You don't know what you have
until he loses it,
he proved so
Because your death came.

You showed strength
like every woman,
you let your husband be seen
Like a coward and lost.

You entered the long list
of women to admire,
i will be like that
and I will write many more.
