The Classical Heritage

It is difficult to understand how a relatively small group of people could make so many contributions to the human heritage in such a short period of time, but this is what the Greeks accomplished between about 600 and 200 BCE. The Greeks were traders and travelers, and they gathered much from older civilizations, and some of their contributions were in the form of synthesis, but their original contributions were nevertheless outstanding. Greece is a mountainous peninsula surrounded by many small islands. This environment, and their location in the Eastern Mediterranean were conducive to a trading economy, but this also encumbered the formation of a strong political unity. The result was a set of independent city-sate communities with some cultural and cooperative ties. Political unity was imposed by the Macedonians, their neighbor to the North, during the fourth century BCE. The Macedonian Alexander the Great (356 – 323 BCE) went on to conquer much of the known world around the Eastern Mediterranean. After his death, his generals divided his empire among themselves, forming local dynasties that spread and maintained Greek culture until the emergence of the Romans. The Romans assimilated Greek culture and spread it further through their conquests.

Recension: Stolthet och fördom (Opera) | Scen | SvD

Recension: Stolthet och fördom (Opera) | Scen | SvD | Antiquity and its Legacy | Scoop.it
ane Austens romaner har visserligen 200 år på nacken, men får oupphörligt nya läsare, filmatiseras, ger upphov till nya romaner som varierar originalen eller diktar vidare. Vadstenaakademien hakar på med en nyskriven opera på Stolthet och fördom; allt är utsålt så Austen-fans som inte har biljett än får hoppas på extraföreställningar på Vadstena slott. Liksom alla som tycker om romantiska komedier, smältande melodier, medryckande ensembler, genomskådande vässad humor, färgstarka karaktärsroller, läckra kostymer och unga, begåvade sångare.
I Austens roman finns invecklade intriger, starka personteckningar och en blixtrande kvick replikkonst. Librettisten Sofia Fredén har lyckats beundransvärt väl med att sovra, lyfta fram handlingslinjen och salta texten med austensk skruv.
