Jules Verne died on March 24, It is therefore quite fitting that SFS celebrate his memory with this March special issue. In the past odd years, the anglophone sf field has witnessed a Jules Verne renaissance. Today, a host of new and accurate Verne translations—with informed critical materials—are available from university presses such as Oxford, Wesleyan, and Nebraska, as well as from commercial publishers such as Random House, Prometheus Books, and others.

Mistichelli, John A. Van Eerde, eds. Boston: G. The opera helped to establish the vogue for Orientalism, which itself was a byproduct of resurgent European colonialism during the mid-nineteenth century. They enter into a wonderful but frightening world of novelty in the India of Acts 4 and 5. This new world is fragrant and exciting, but uncertain and potentially deadly in its many hidden dangers and poisons.

Vasco is entranced but also mindful to make it his own in the spirit of swashbuckling colonial enterprise. He will become a victim of this dangerous engulfing new world unless he is saved from it. Meyerbeer wrote some of his most beautiful music for this last work, a work of farewell, characterized by radiant lyricism and melodic richness. The sustained contrast between the old world of Portugal and the exotic new world of the east, the flowing melos of the musical texture, the homogeneity of melodic inspiration and instrumentation, give the work a unique quality. The roles of all four main characters are written in the refulgence of the bel canto tradition in which Meyerbeer had for so long been schooled.

When coupled with the heroic traditions of grand opera , the singing makes for an intensity of lyric expression. The battle lines between these schools of tenor technique had been famously drawn by the legendary Adolphe Nourrit and Louis-Gilbert Dupez respectively. This type has best been realized in our days by Nicolai Gedda and Alfredo Kraus. Of particularly unprepossessing appearance and not much of an actor, Affre finally succeeded in making a career, both on stage and before the recording horn, out of sheer reliability.

In this later part of his career he also sang at the Kursaal in Oostende, in London, Havana, San Francisco, Mexico, and New Orleans, where he was director of the company for the season. In he began giving singing lessons in Paris, while still appearing in concert until Here his fine baritone voice was soon discovered by the director of the Dutch Opera who immediately engaged him for his new opera company.

In Albers became the first baritone of the opera in Antwerp. There, Jules Massenet heard him sing and was so impressed that he advised Albers to go to Paris for further study with the great baritone Jean-Baptiste Faure. In Albers was engaged at Bordeaux, and also made his debut at Covent Garden. Albers died of food poisoning. He had one of the most beautiful baritone voices of his time, heroic in timbre, and great facility in coloratura. He recorded extracts from his own wide-ranging stage repertoire, in both French and Dutch, and also a large number of song titles, ranging from the popular to the patriotic, passing through Schumann and Tchaikovsky in French on the way.

His love of music, however, led to amateur study and performance. His official training began in Milan in with Giuseppe Cima. He was to have created Silvio in Pagliacci in , but he withdrew from the cast shortly before the premiere. He later took on the role of Tonio in various first performances of the opera, including Covent Garden and the Metropolitan, two houses in which he was frequently heard during the s.

He was also successful in Warsaw, Paris, and throughout Italy. His final operatic season was with the Chicago Opera, — His final recordings were made in the U.

During the season, he appeared at the Liceo in Barcelona singing Manrico in Il trovatore. For the next twenty years he continued to sing principally in Italy and Spain. Aramburo was married to American soprano Ada Adini, but this only lasted for a few years. Egotistical and temperamental, Aramburo was notorious for cancelling performances at the last minute for no reason.

In the late s he moved to Montevideo where he established a singing school and became popular as a teacher. In , he founded his own recording company, making a group of cylinder recordings, which were sold locally. Few of these cylinders have ever surfaced, and then only in one or two copies each. He died in Montevideo on 17 November For more information on this largely undocumented tenor, see The Record Collector Vol.

He then studied with tenor Gabriel Gandubert in Paris. The same year, an engagement in Lille, again as a contralto, came to nothing when the theater closed after a few weeks of activity, and she settled for a concert career, singing with Lamoureux, Colonne, and about every concert society in Paris. She appeared in most French cities as well as abroad Colonne notably took her to Saint Petersburg and Moscow in until her retirement in A perfect master of a very long tessitura encompassing both the soprano and contralto ranges, she had an extensive repertoire of oratorios, songs, Lieder, and opera arias, which her nearly fifty sides for French Gramophone nicely document.

She died in Nice in early Belhomme was known to be a fine actor and was a favorite with the public. Beyle sang his last performances at the Comique during the season, retiring because of poor health. He taught singing in Paris with his wife for a time, but died in Lyon on 17 July of complications from surgery.

These include eighteenth- and nineteenth-century repertoire, plus selections from some of the roles he created, including Aphrodite , and La fille de Roland. Other records of his, featuring operetta and popular songs, appeared under the pseudonym Stendhal, a nod to the nineteenth century novelist, whose real name was also Beyle. He left the Comique in for La Monnaie, where he remained until There, he sang more important roles, from the Wanderer in Siegfried to Gurnemanz. After making his Monte Carlo debut in , and serving in the war, he settled in Marseille, dividing his time between the opera there and guest appearances in Lyon, Nice, and Toulouse with summer appearances at Aix-les-Bains.

Her acting skills were not favorably compared to her contemporaries such as Bellincioni, Burzio, Storchio, and Destinn. She was contracted for a series of Columbia and Edison records. She retired from the stage in and spent the next two decades teaching singing. She later resided in the Verdi Casa di riposo in Milan. Like Lassalle and Renaud, his stay at the Paris Conservatory was brief, and he left without any prizes.

His repertory spanned music-hall and operetta to Wotan and the Dutchman, while the number of important creations in which he took a significant part is impressive. Bouvet taught at the Paris Conservatory between and when he resigned, putting an end to his career. Bouvet died in Therefore, it must for now be assumed that Carlyle is a pseudonym.

She seems to have covered the role of Kundry, but never actually sang the part in the house. She may have been given this small part because the composer had been the director of the Lyon Conservatory and championed Carlyle when she was a student. A car accident in further stalled her career, which never really took flight. She spent the war, like most of her colleagues, singing in patriotic concerts in France.

Although she sang occasionally until , by the s Carlyle seems to have essentially retired. No information has been found concerning her death. By the time she was eight, she was singing operatic arias and classical songs. In her father, an admiral in the Cuban navy, was asked to act as official host to General and Mrs.

In March and April , Chalia was rediscovered in her own country, where long, illustrated articles about her appeared in the Cuban papers. A bill was introduced into the Cuban senate and she was offered inducements to return to Cuba, including a small pension to make her final years more comfortable.

She and her husband arrived in Havana on 5 August , an emotion-laden occasion for everyone. Chalia is now remembered as the first great vocalist to make recordings. Her records show her extremely flexible voice, its supple timbre, and her huge range. She negotiates coloratura passages with breathtaking agility and beauty.
