Abstract | Full Text

The work of M. Cebotari on the main female role of countess Madlen in R. Strauss last opera “Capriccio” was an important step in the singer’s career, despite the fact that she performed it only eight times. The participation of the famous artist in the Vienna premiere in 1944, undoubtedly, contributed to the rapid popularization of this work in the world of musical theater, and also helped the formation of the classical tradition in the performance of the leading part by a lyrical soprano. Highly accomplished singers such as L.della Kaza, E. Schwarzkopf, R. Fleming and others are among the singers that later followed this aesthetics of interpretation. This most complicated part from the point of view of its musical, vocal and acting difficulties is considered to be a trial stage in the professional formation of M. Cebotari — the future performer of operas written by contemporary composers at the postwar Salzburg Festival.
