The first performance of the German Jewish composer Giacomo Meyerbeer’s
Les Huguenots, in February 1836, was one of the most stunning successes
in the history of the Paris Opéra. Word spread quickly, and Les
Huguenots became the Opéra’s most frequently performed production for
the rest of the century. This grandest of grand operas explores the
subject of religious intolerance, a matter that is all too familiar to
contemporary audiences. Meyerbeer specifically based the story on the
events of the Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre in 1572, when Roman
Catholic mob violence was unleashed against French Calvinist Protestants
(Huguenots) during the reign of King Charles IX. Many prominent
Huguenots were killed, and those who survived were further marginalized
and radicalized. Meyerbeer knew something about religious persecution
himself: along with Mendelssohn, he was a target of Richard Wagner’s
vicious and often anti-Semitic criticism.
The 2009 SummerScape production at the Fisher Center is staged by the
young American director Thaddeus Strassberger, winner of the 2005
European Opera Directing Prize, in collaboration with the Spanish
photographer and filmmaker Eugenio Recuenco. It is majestic opera at its
purest, featuring a large cast and chorus, all against a sobering
backdrop of bigotry and hatred.
