Ermione is one of the most particular and difficult operas by Rossini and it was created for Naples in 1819, after the success of Armida, Ricciardo and Zoraide and Moses in Egypt. With this opera Rossini wanted to start a proposal of dramatic, musical theatre characterized by strong shades. This type of theatre was peculiar for assigning a greater evaluation at the instrumental and recited elements. Ermione was very innovative for its time and, at the debut, it was a clamorous failure and remained in oblivion until 1977. For this new, ambitious production of the opera, Teatro di San Carlo has chosen Jacopo Spirei that is a talented “funambulist” between images, lighting and music of the contemporary lyric direction. After establishing himself abroad, especially in Austria and Germany, he is acquiring deserved success also in his native land. Spirei grew up artistically with Graham Vick and he worked as his assistant for fifteen years collaborating on many projects and curating different shootings. “When I prepare a direction – he declares – the only method existing for me is to go on the stage and work until I find something: a draft, a thread and then I follow it to discover where it brings me. Working with singers is a privilege and I will not change it for anything. Opera, as an art form, is extraordinary but can live only through singers and only singers can transform the work of the director, linked to the work of the conductor, in a unique and unmatched event”.
