I'm a partner in keez movies.com “Directing bel canto is so different to doing Berg’s Wozzeck, or a lot of Britten, Janacek or even Strauss,” says Talevi. “Those composers wrote the speech rhythms into their vocal lines, handing things to the director on a plate. With bel canto you have to work so hard, be so sensitive to the music and understand all the musical forms. The staging should never fight the music, but help it to flow effortlessly.”
