LE CHALET / BETLY
ADOLPHE ADAM / GAETANO DONIZETTI
The rural mountain world of Switzerland with its peculiar soundscape - the murmur of clear streams, the peaceful ringing of cowbells - was a source of inspiration for many 19th century composers. This was also the case for the guiding star of the French opéra comique, Adolphe Adam, and the great bel canto master Gaetano Donizetti.
The unique double bill "Le Chalet Suisse" combines for the first time Adam's "Le Chalet " and Donizetti's "Betly", both based on Goethe's Singspiel "Jery und Bätely". The story is set in the hills of Appenzell, where Betly lives in a small chalet. In a confined space, a nerve-wracking intrigue unfolds between the freedom-loving Betly, her incognito brother Max, and Daniel, who is head over heels in love with Betly....
The well-known management team around Andrea Bernard ("L'Italiana in Algeri", "La Cenerentola", "La fille du régiment") returns to TOBS. Franco Trinca conducts. Look forward to pure Swissness!
