Musical fairy tale in three acts (1922) (revised version, 1934)
Libretto by Gian Bistolfi after the fairy tale by Charles Perrault;
Ottorino Respighi’s La bella dormente nel bosco (“The Sleeping Beauty”) was originally commissioned by the renowned puppeteer Vittoria Podrecca. The revised version we hear today preserves much of the kaleidoscopic approach and magnified characters and emotions of that original. Now enhanced by the composer’s matchless orchestration. This famous story in which the Princess pricks her finger on a spindle and sleeps for centuries until kissed by her Prince is given a magical atmosphere through director Leo Muscato’s colourful staging, and the superb cast of this Teatro Lirico di Cagliari production truly inhabits an enchanted realm.
