• How Liszt's Lost Opera was Rescued

    This documentary tells the story of how a team of Cambridge University researchers and singers worked to rescue the first act of Liszt's opera from a manuscript that was assumed to be fragmentary and illegible. Alongside musical segments and interviews, it shows how the music was rescued and brought to life. The world premiere of a scene took place on Thursday 15th June 2017 as part of the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Film by Tom Andrews (https://www.tom-andrews.co.uk), sound by Myles Eastwood (https://www.eastwoodrecords.co.uk). By kind permission of the Master and Fellows of Christ's, Jesus, and St. John's College, University of Cambridge.

  • Abandoned Liszt opera brought to life - Trailer

    A great Italian opera by Franz Liszt – which was left incomplete and has lain largely forgotten in a German archive for nearly two centuries – will be given its world premiere this summer after being resurrected by a Cambridge academic. David Trippett, Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Music at the University of Cambridge, first discovered the opera languishing in an archive in Weimar more than ten years ago. Known only to a handful of Liszt scholars, the manuscript – with much of its music written in shorthand and only one act completed – was assumed to be fragmentary, often illegible and consequently indecipherable. However, after Trippett spent the last 2 years working critically on the manuscript, a ten-minute preview will now be performed for the first time in public as part of the w...

  • Kepler's Trial: An Opera

    Johannes Kepler - 1571-1630, is one of history’s most admired astronomers. He defended Copernicus's sun-centred universe and defined the three laws of planetary motion. Less well known is that in 1615, when Kepler was at the height of his career, his widowed mother Katharina was accused of witchcraft. The proceedings led to a criminal trial, with Kepler conducting his elderly mother's defence. The opera, Kepler's Trial, responds to Paul Hindemith's Harmony of the World and other accounts which present Katharina as deranged and witch-like. Based on fresh historical research, by Professor Ulinka Rublack in her book "The Astronomer & the Witch", the new work counters the endemic misogyny against old women which prevailed in the ‘witch-craze’ and continues to be a cultural force. Instead, the ...

  • Cambridge Youth Opera: Daphnis and Chloe - 29 January 2017 19:30

    Daphnis and Chloe are in love, but are too innocent to know what their feelings for each other mean. The wild Bacchantes all fancy Daphnis, while the god Pan, disguised as a statue, has his eye on Chloe. We have taken this Greek story, turned into an opérette by Offenbach, and moved it to Edwardian Cambridge, setting the action on Grantchester Meadows. Daphnis is a student, Chloe an educated young girl and the Bacchantes have become the Cambridge Isadorables, an amateur dance group following the great Isadora Duncan. Only Pan remains unchanged.

Less well known is that in 1615, when Kepler was at the height of his career, his widowed mother Katharina was accused of witchcraft.

The opera, Kepler's Trial, responds to Paul Hindemith's Harmony of the World and other accounts which present Katharina as deranged and witch-like. Based on fresh historical research, by Professor Ulinka Rublack in her book "The Astronomer & the Witch", the new work counters the endemic misogyny against old women which prevailed in the ‘witch-craze’ and continues to be a cultural force. Instead, the book, opera and film explore with sensitivity, empathy and nuance what it meant for Johannes and Katharina to face accusations of witchcraft. The performance is the outcome of a highly unusual creative process, in which a group of scholars met regularly to explore the story. Tim Watts’ opera seeks to illuminate the story through the combination of allusions to the music of the early 17th century with video sequences by Aura Satz that amplify its themes of darkness and light, sight and illusion. At its centre is the depiction of the ageing woman. Premieres on the 28 October 2016 at St John¹s College, Cambridge.
