S. Donaudy "36 Arie di stile antico" 研究 V : オペラ作品との関わりを視点として その3
A Study on S. Donaudy "36 Arie di stile antico" V : Regarding his operatic works No.3
This paper examines the first act Ramuntcho (1921), an opera composed by S. Donaudy (1879-1925). Similar to his previous work Sperduti nel Buio (1907), Ramuntcho features a variety of tempos and dynamics that, together with the vast number of stage directions according to the script written by his brother A. Donaudy (1880-1941), seem to restrict both the performers and director himself. The influence of G. Puccini (1858-1924) is also visible at various times. The opera of Ramuntcho is based on the short story of the same name published in 1897 by the French writer Pierre Loti (1850-1923). A. Donaudy slightly modified some of the characters from the original short story as he searched for a manner to make the work viable as an opera. This work was adapted and filmed as a motion picture three times in France. I believe that the study and research of these works would prove to be of significant value.
