Il Cavaliere Errante / Vocal Score

Author: TOMMASO TRAETTA

     Il Cavaliere Errante (The Errant Knight), a comic-heroic drama, belongs to the last creative period of Tommaso Traetta: here he first developed the amiable side of his talent arriving to originality and acquired lightness in his musical expression.The opera is essentially a fairy tale:: a Spanish prince makes his men abduct the lady whom he is in love with, he holds her prisoner in an enchanted island, and there, with the aid of the spells of a magician, tries to convince her to marry him. The lady, however, is in love with the Errant Knight who, with the help of a good witch and with his faithful servant, is able to dissolve the incantations, free his beloved and marry her. The score is full of parodies, recitatives and virtuosic arias for all the characters and presents some topoi used by his successors, from Mozart to Rossini.

 

 

 

 

     Il Cavaliere Errante, dramma eroicomico (1778) appartiene all'ultimo periodo creativo di Tommaso Traetta: qui ha innanzi tutto sviluppato il lato amabile del suo talento sino all'originalità ed ha acquisito leggerezza nell'espressione musicale. L'opera è in sostanza una favola: un principe spagnolo fa rapire la dama della quale è innamorato, la confina in un'isola incantata e lì, con i sortilegi di un mago, tenta di convincerla a sposarlo. La dama è però innamorata del Cavaliere Errante che, grazie all'aiuto di una maga buona ed insieme al fedele servo, riesce ad annullare i sortilegi, a liberare l'amata e a sposarla. La partitura è ricca di parodie, di recitativi ed arie virtuosistiche per tutti i personaggi e presenta alcuni tòpoi utilizzati dai suoi successori, da Mozart a Rossini
