Un amour violent et sincère vient de briser cette demi-mondaine. Of the 42 numbers it contained, 4 were written by Frenchmen Philidor, Monsigny ; 1 jointly by a Frenchman and an Italian Philidor, Laschi ; 5 by composers of German origin J. The most frequent characteristic of the remainder of the music is that the numbers are drawn from published collections of English songs. Richard Jenner aimed his lines directly at both the original Love in a Village , and the sentimental Maid of the Mill :. He spoils the old, and gives us nothing new; ….
Ye Britons rouze; pay some heed to fame. The miller is a close copy of Goodman Andrews, Ralph is imagined for the wild son which he is mentioned to have had , Theodosia, for the young lady of quality with him Mr. Bickerstaffe seems to have kept less close to the original than he claimed, which suggests that his nod to Pamela was an effort to promote his own work by association with the popular novel rather than an acknowledgement of a literary model.
The amorous Parson Williams becomes a somewhat heavy-handed farmer called Giles. The action of the opera is resolved by a rather tedious love triangle in which Lord Aimworth is motivated by his unfounded jealously of Giles, and Patty is driven by her equally unfounded jealousy of Theodosia, the character whose affections are fixed on Mr B. Commenting on his reason for changing the story, Goldoni was quoted as remarking:. Pamela, although mean and low, deserves to be the wife of a Nobleman; but a Nobleman grants too much to the Merit of Pamela, if not withstanding the Meanness of her Birth, he takes her to Wife.
It is true that in London some make no Difficulty of such Marriages, neither is there any Law there which forbids them; but it is no less true that no one will like therefore that his Son, Brother, or near Relation should marry a low Woman, rather than one of his own Rank, although she first may be handsomer and more virtuous than the last. In prosecuting this plan, which he has varied from the original, as far as he thought convenient, the author has made simplicity his principal aim.
His scenes, on account of the music, which could not be perfect without such a mixture, necessarily consist of serious and buffoon. He knows grossness and insipidity lay in his way; whether he has had art enough to avoid stumbling upon them, the candid Public is left to determine.
The opera had a successful premiere on 31 January at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, and was staged for much of the rest of the 18 th century. By April of its premiere year, it could be seen in Dublin; it went on to be staged in a large number of centres, being performed in New York in , St Petersburg by , in Jamaica by , and in Montreal in the s.
La buona figliuola played for 28 performances, more than three times that of any other opera that season. La buona figliuola maritata played for 9 performances, equalling the next highest total, that for another opera buffa , Gli extravaganti. Nothing is so much in fashion as the Buona Figliuola. The second part [ La buona figliuola maritata ] was tried, but did not succeed half so well, and they have resumed the first part, which is crowded even behind the scenes.
La buona figliuola also overshadowed all the opera seria in the repertory; until this season, the genre had been the predominant force in Italian opera in London for over 60 years. Nevertheless, it did not outstrip The Maid of the Mill in popularity:. There is something very absurd and truly characteristic of the present age in supporting a set of people at immense expence to perform plays in a language which very few understand. But there must also have been an appropriate performing style to present the work so convincingly to the public, who returned to it night after night.
As it happens, performing styles on the London opera stage were as polarised as the division of repertory between the theatres, a polarity which dated from the arrival of Italian opera:. I deny not, that the preternatural screams of an Italian singer may occasion surprise, and momentary amusement; but those screams are not music; they are admired, not for their propriety or pathos, but, like rope-dancing, and the eating of fire, merely because they are uncommon or difficult.
Besides, the end of all genuine music is, to introduce into the human mind certain affections, or susceptibilities. It is impossible at this distance to determine exactly what was meant by the use of this word, but it was used from the late 17 th to the early 19 th centuries when discussing the stage manner of many English actors and singers, and while the term cannot have meant precisely the same thing every time or period in which it was used, its employment is extraordinarily consistent. Her manner is original; she does not conceive so boldly as others, but she finishes her work with greater neatness.
In the case of the singer Rose Mountain, it was reported that:. The Musical, the serious, and the comic lines, she tried, but with little success; and towards the conclusion of the season she dropped into her proper sphere, that of a second Singer In Operas her manner is simple and agreeable, and for the department she filled we know none better calculated. The lack of such artifice was a condition to which actors aspired:.
There is a girl who performs, without any exaggeration, infinitely superior to any thing ever seen on our stage. The action of our best players is only imitation; she alone is quite natural, without the least appearance of art, and various [ sic ] infinitely as the subject requires. The theatre historian Luigi Riccoboni claimed this approach for English performers:. As to actors, if after forty-five years Experience, I may be intitled [ sic ] to give my opinion, I dare advance that the best actors in Italy and France come far short of those in England. The Italian and French Players, far from endeavouring at that happy Imitation of nature and justness which forms the beauty of action, affect a forced stiff manner of acting, which never fails to mislead the Audience.
To form the better judgement of both, let us compare them impartially.
The English Authors copy truth Yet it is the Englishman that is always presented as straightforward, honest, upright, and most importantly, virtuous, while the foreigners whether Italian or anybody else were usually characterised as superficial and deceitful. In the case of Younge, the headdress, the sweeping, almost panniered, skirts, and the feathers are typical of nearly all costume associated with serious drama and opera, and therefore in its representation in portraits, usually shown, as here, with the singer in a heroic pose. As far as the portrait of Prudom is concerned, it illustrates two different strands of theatrical costuming in the 18 th century.
On one hand, she is decked out in the latest fashion, the mode à la Turque , illustrating the cross currents of influence between stage and fashion. Gone are the frills, feathers and so on, and in their place Patty is given a plain and simple cap, loose drawn sleeves, and a petticoat hanging below the hem of the overskirt. The importance of this changing image is seen very clearly in the circumstances of the picture of Billington as Rosetta; she was a very grand singer, and a very capable soprano; and the subsequent images of her show her stately, with at times perhaps too much emphasis on her embonpoint.
It is an awkward image, but it emphasises that even Billington, when performing the role, needed to respond to the trend of simplicity in costume; the fact she was willing to be pictured in this manner suggests that, commercially, she felt it was no bad thing. Above all, it is clear that without the distinctive performing style of English singers, sentimental opera might have developed quite differently in London or not have developed at all. Mar Brent.

This is a complete disaster. June is good in the basically supporting role but there is no substance to this film. It is a flimsy plot basically made to allow Kathryn Grayson's somewhat piercing soprano. A purchase I wish I had ignored. It has little story and does not favours to any of the cast. If it were possible to award no stars I would do so. Signaler un abus Traduire review en Français.
