Pietro Mascangni - L'Amico Fritz - OPERA

"Anyone who believes that masterpieces will, over time, find their way into the collective memory of posterity, where they will finally receive the recognition they deserve, is mistaken. Being forgotten is probably the most bitter form of reception that can happen to a work of art. Of the many examples in music history, Italian opera has a particularly tragic fate: that of Pietro Mascagni's idyllic masterpiece 'L'amico Fritz'. This overlooked gem is full of rich tonal colours and contains Italy's most beautiful musical pearls, almost undiscovered. Lukas Sölkner

This great music is contrasted by a rather simple plot: The wealthy bachelor Fritz bets his friend David that he will never marry. Bet: a vineyard. Shortly afterwards Fritz meets Suzel, the daughter of his estate manager. The little girl has become a beautiful young woman. Only when David spreads the rumour that Suzel is engaged does Fritz realise his love for Suzel. He confesses his love at the last minute and the two of them marry. David has thus won the bet and the vineyard. He does not keep it for himself, but gives it to Suzel as a wedding present. He is satisfied with the triumph that his rumour about Suzel's marriage has come true.

The exciting thing about this seemingly simple content is the relationships between the individual characters and their connections to one another. To go into depth here and to fathom and reveal the individual motivations, (hidden) feelings and fears of the characters makes a preoccupation with this opera so appealing. Ute Monika Engelhardt
