DIRECTOR'S NOTE
It seems appropriate that I am writing these program notes on
International Women’s Day. Our 2016–2017 opera season has featured
a variety of strong women—the sister sorceresses of Handel’s Alcina,
the sister wives of Nico Muhly’s Dark Sisters, and now, the merry
wives that teach Sir John Falstaff a lesson in Die lustigen Weiber von
Windsor—all ably performed by the strong and talented women of
Boston Conservatory at Berklee's opera program. As part of our ongoing
commitment to the training of our students (both male and female),
these works have provided valuable experiences with a variety of
languages, musical and dramatic styles, and orchestral textures, as well
as numerous opportunities for dazzling vocalism.
Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor is well known and Verdi’s
Falstaff, which is based on it and parts of Henry IV, is also extremely
popular. Otto Nicolai’s version premiered in 1849 and is perhaps
best known for a couple of arias and the colorful overture, which is
often presented as a standalone concert piece. The entire opera,
however, is filled with delightful and brilliantly crafted ensembles, vivid
orchestrations, and vocal lines that are more akin to Italian bel canto
writing than what one finds in most German singspiels. Although he was
born and raised in Germany, Nicolai spent the early part of his career in
Italy, and you can hear the influences of Bellini, Donizetti, and early Verdi
in his vocal writing. His first four operas were originally written in Italian,
and for quite some time, Nicolai was more famous than Verdi in Italy!
Nicolai eventually returned to his roots and embraced the influence and
style of German romantic music. He settled in Vienna, where he wrote
numerous works for orchestra, chorus, and solo instruments, as well as
lieder. He was also well known as a conductor and founded the Vienna
Philharmonic. Nicolai moved to Berlin in 1849, where Die lustigen Weiber
von Windsor premiered. It was his only opera to be originally written
in German, and is considered his masterpiece. Although now eclipsed
by Verdi’s Falstaff (how fickle fame can be!), Die lustigen Weiber von
Windsor is a wonderful comic opera that deserves to be heard and
enjoyed by a wider audience.
2 • Die Lustigen Weiber von Windsor (Merry Wives of Windsor)
In this time when women are asserting their agency and demanding that
their rights be respected, the stories we have told throughout our season
are a fitting complement to that worthy and necessary struggle. It is not
hard to imagine Mistress Ford and Mistress Page (Frau Fluth and Frau
Reich in this version) donning their pink pussy hats as they stand up to
jealous husbands, deflect unwanted sexual advances, and assert their
independence in a narrow, patriarchal society.
