Tasca Pierantonio (1864-1934) A Santa Lucia, Melodrama in due atti

Libretto: Enrico Golisciani


During the late nineteenth century countless composers modeled their operas
on Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana, hoping that this strategy would
likewise bring them success. These composers included not only Leoncavallo
with his Pagliacci but also the young composer Pierantonio Tasca. Although
Tasca had grown up in Sicily, in A Santa Lucia he depicted Naples, Italy’s
largest city and a metropolitan world plagued by poverty and the everyday
struggle for survival. This opera celebrated its premiere not in Naples,
not in Rome or Milan, but at the Kroll Opera in Berlin on 16 November 1892
and enjoyed great success. For some years this captivating, impassioned,
and tender music and its highly atmospheric local color earned Tasca the
rank of the most esteemed »young Italian« composer in Germany, right along
with Mascagni and Leoncavallo.
