 Rolf Liebermann (1910-1999)

La Forêt   - Musical comedy in 5 acts. Libretto by Hélène Vida by Alexander Ostrovsky’s play of the same
 
Live recording of the premiere on 24 April 1987 at the Grand Théâtre de Genève. A co-production with Radio Suisse Romande - Espace 2
 
Rolf Liebermann wrote his fourth opera La Forêt on behalf of the Grand Thea ¢ tre Genève Suisse Romande and Radio Télévision mid-1980s. This is a 30-year break as an opera composer, during which he had worked as a successful director, first in Hamburg (1959-73), then in Paris (1973-80), and finally again in Hamburg (1985-88). The choice of Ostrowski’s bitter comedy The forest as a template for his new opera occurred to him according to his own statements easily, since it had accompanied his whole life this piece and its main theme, the contrast of civic life and artistry, affected him personally. His successful career as a composer, he started with the three opera Leonora 40/45 (1952), Penelope (1954) and The School for Wives (1955). After La Forêt followed in 1992 eventually led to his fifth and final opera Medea (also published by Musiques Suisses MGB CD 6126).
