Szymanowski's 'Król Roger'
reviewed by GIUSEPPE PENNISI

 

The National Santa Cecilia Academy opened its 2017-2018 season on 5 October 2017 with a performance of Karol Szymanowski's Król Roger (King Roger), a rarely performed opera, even though it was recently staged in London under the musical direction of Antonio Pappano. Enthralled by the opera, Pappano is conducting it at the National Santa Cecilia Academy (5-9 October 2017) and will conduct it again at La Scala in 2021. In Italy, the opera has been staged only in Palermo (where the plot is set). I was in the audience on 5 October, having previously seen the opera in Palermo (2005) and in Warsaw (2006)...
