The Dresden College of Music founded in 1856 and bearing the name of Carl Maria von Weber comes to the now traditional Opera Exam Festival of the Liszt Academy with a one-act hit opera and a three-act, although extremely concise and truly delicate speciality. Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi requires no introduction or recommendation, unlike Darius Milhaud’s opera Le pauvre matelot (1927), that is, The Poor Sailor. A complaint in three acts – this is the genre description of the work, the libretto of which Jean Cocteau draed on the basis of a crime report in the newspaper. The opera with just four cast members, similarly to other works by Darius Milhaud for stage, is virtually unknown in Hungary, thus the Dresden production promises to be a genuine discovery of the French composer’s oeuvre, which is represented in the domestic concert repertoire by only a few pieces.
