Electric Fetus

Catalani's masterpiece, first performed in 1892 at La Scala in Milan, is best known for it's aria "Ebben? Ne andrò lontana". With nuanced harmonies and colourful instrumentation, he pays great attention to the orchestra sound. He chose highly unusual material for his opera: the successful novel Die Geier-Wally by Wilhelmine von Hillern tells the story of a young woman who does not fit any of the gender clichés of the time. Unlike many earlier operatic heroines commanded to marry against their will, Wally does not look for a solution in society, but instead runs away to the mountains. Her husband must be her equal, someone unafraid to face both a bear and her father. "Izabela Matula - A Wagnerian hell of a woman with a great soprano." (Kronenzeitung) / "Catalani's highly dramatic music finds an intense advocate in Andrés Orozco-Estrada on the podium of the excellently disposed Wiener Symphoniker." (Wiener Zeitung)
