Description

Midsummer Night is a time when passion can turn to madness, and fantasy and reality mingle in dangerous ways. The unpredictable consequences have been explored by writers and composers from Shakespeare to Britten, and nocturnal reflections have provided the catalyst for operatic scenes of obsession and disturbance. Kate Royal presents here a personal selection of arias that ventures beyond such perennial favourites as Dvořák's Song to the Moon and Lehár's Vilja to rarities by William Alwyn, Bernard Herrmann and Carlisle Floyd.


1. Alwyn - Midsummer Night: Miss Julie 
2. Stravinsky - Nightingale Aria: Le Rossignol 
3. Walton - At the haunted end of the day: Troilus and Cressida 
4. Floyd - The trees on the Mountains: Susannah 
5. Dvořák - Song to the Moon: Rusalka 
6. Britten - Embroidery Aria: Peter Grimes 
7. Lehár - Vilja: Die Lustige Witwe 
8. Barber - Do not utter a word: Vanessa 
9. Britten - Tiny's Song: Paul Bunyan 
10. Messager - Philomel: Monsieur Beaucaire 
11. Britten - The Tower Scene: Turn of the Screw 
12. Herrmann - I have dreamt: Wuthering heights 
13. Korngold - Marietta's Lied: Die Tote Stadt
