LA TRAVIATA VILLAZÓN TOONS (VIDEO)



En SinfiniMusic acaban de publicar este especialmente graciosa, colorida y vital explicación del argumento de La Traviata, en dibujos (ligeramente) animados, según Rolando Villazón. Hace un año ya se había publicado una versión, algo más rudimentaria, de La Bohème (ver).


Multi-talented international tenor Rolando Villazón uncaps his felt-tip pen and with a few expert strokes brings alive the beautiful courtesan Violetta Valery and her young admirer Alfredo Germont, in Verdi's great romantic opera, La traviata. His sparky animation and charming narration, recorded exclusively for Sinfini, takes us through their meeting, their brief joy and the tragic denouement of their great love story.
Rolando's new Mozart Concert Arias album is released internationally on 20 January and on 24 February 24 in the UK.

    Le génie inventif de Rolando n' a pas de limites et la précision de ses dessins, les expressions des personnages, le soin apporté à chaque détail et aussi l'humour sous-jacent m'enchantent. Quel talent !!
    MERCI !

  3. est ce qu'il y a un art que Rolando ne maîtrise pas? Il est formidable; tout ce qu'il fait est original, humoristique, talentueux , intéressant !!!!
    Chanteur, metteur en scène, dessinateur, écrivain, polyglotte, clown, imitateur, présentateur de TV, poète, philosophe, quoi encore? Il est unique, c'est le cas de le dire ! Bravissimo, tout court !

  5. Ce qui m'enchante le plus dans les dessins de Rolando c'est que quelques traits et coups de crayon lui suffisent pour créer des personnages, des caractères - même des situations.

  6. Dear Teresa ,,,

    I saw this new Villazón Toon earlier today via Sinfini Music's newsletter and I knew it wouldn't be long before you posted it! I love it!

    Like the earlier "La Boheme" Toon, it really captures the essence of "La Traviata". The changing expressions of the characters (particularly Alfredo) are drawn so simply, yet convey the exact emotion! The backgrounds too - so cleverly created with just a few pen strokes. I really liked the "music note" chandelier in Act 1, and the disembodied heads at Flora's party - giving the impression that Violetta is living in some crazy nightmare.

    Rolando's narration too, is indeed "charming". His words are well chosen - not too few, not too many. I particularly liked his description of Baron Douphol as "her old sugar-daddy!" I haven't heard that expression for years ... and it is so appropriate!

    A delightful gem from our very talented Maestro! I am sure it will have the effect he hopes for, and stimulate opera novices to look in more detail at this great opera and others.

    Cheers from Shelley in Australia
