Luci mie traditrici
Salvatore Sciarrino
from Fri 13.09.2019 to Tue 24.09.2019

Luci mie traditrici (Oh My Betraying Eyes) is an opera in two acts by Salvatore Sciarrino,

who also wrote the libretto. It was first performed under the German title Die tödliche Blume (The Deadly Flower) on 19 May 1998 in the Schlosstheater Schwetzingen at the Schwetzingen Festival. Sciarrino started composing the opera in 1996.

He based the libretto on the 1590 murder by the composer Carlo Gesualdo of his wife and her lover, but while working on it he discovered that Alfred Schnittke was also composing an opera (Gesualdo) on the same story. Deleting the references to Gesualdo, Sciarrino turned to a play, Il tradimento per l’onore, by Giacinto Andrea Cicognini, and also used an elegy of Claude Le Jeune, based on a text by Pierre de Ronsard.
