Looking for 'Lucia'
By Daniel Mendelsohn
Lucia di Lammermoor an opera by Gaetano Donizetti, libretto by Salvatore Cammarano, directed by Mary Zimmerman at the Metropolitan Opera, New York
In February 1834, Gaetano Donizetti, whom the premiere of his Anna Bolena Marin Faliero , as the new opera was called, was both unspectacular and short, closing after five performances. Partly this had to do with the fact that the opera premiered late in the season, a serious disadvantage particularly since it had been preceded by Bellini's hit I Puritani ; partly it was because of practical aggravations of the kind amusingly familiar from the performance histories of early-nineteenth-century opera. (The Parisian fire marshals had insisted on testing their new safety system the day after the prima , a routine that involved, among other things, flooding the theater.) But if Marin Faliero Marino Faliero It is tempting to think that Donizetti himself might have secretly, or at least unconsciously, shared this assessment of his work's fatal flaw. After all, soon after he returned to Italy, a month after Faliero 's truncated run, in order to begin work on the first of three new operas he'd agreed to compose for the Teatro San Carlo in Naples, he settled on a subject that seemed impervious to any possible objection that its heroine lacked "interest."

Edgardo di Ravenswood
During vilaine fille's funk, tenor Giuseppe Filianoti, the first-cast Edgardo in this season's Met revival of Lucia, became the it-boy of la blogosfera—or at least of our bent little corner thereof. Les enfants, vilaine fille has several things to say, starting with: I told you so. In fact, I told you so twice. And our darling sorella romana posted a magnificent clip way back in May. vilaine fille will share her impressions of young Filianoti   la brother Tom, moving from the general to the particular. "Enthusiasm": from enthousiazein, "to be inspired by a god," in a state that commands assent and awe. Filianoti oozes this quality, whether sprinting out for his bow with the glee of a child chasing an ice cream truck, or swearing revenge, cursing fate, or otherwise tending to a hochromantische hero's chores. Brother Steve nailed it: Filianoti's Edgardo met his end with a swooning grace, a death-besotted bliss, that was boldly archaic and utterly true to Donizetti's ethos. And guess what? No one laughed. No one *breathed.* (By contrast, Elizabeth Futral's faints consistently prompted guffaws.) If Filianoti husbands his resources with care, he might one day be a mind-blowing Ernani.*

edit Overview
Berlin began publishing relatively late in life, under the encouragement and sometimes tutelage of poet Ed Dorn . Her first small collection, Angels Laundromat was published in 1981, but her published stories were written as early as 1960. Several of her stories appeared in magazines such as The Atlantic and Saul Bellow’s little magazine The Noble Savage. Berlin published six collections of short stories, but most of her work can be found in three later volumes from Black Sparrow Books Homesick: New and Selected Stories So Long: Stories 1987-92 (1993) and Where I Live Now: Stories 1993-98 Berlin was never a bestseller, but was widely influential within the literary community. She aspired to Chekhov's objectivity and refusal to judge. She has also been widely compared to Raymond Carver and Richard Yates . One of her most memorable achievements was the stunning one-page story "My Jockey," which captured a world, a moment and a panoramic movement in five quick paragraphs. It won the Jack London Short Prize for 1985. Berlin also won an American Book Award in 1991 for

4. Lucia Di Lammermoor
Callas s berlin lucia on EMI compact discs, The 1953 studio recording, Donizetti LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR (Naxos 8110131-32) with Maria Callas,
Lucia di Lammermoor
Lucia di Lammermoor , the most famous and popular of Donizetti's operas, was first performed on September 26, 1835, at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples. The opera was based on the novel The Bride of Lammermoor by Sir Walter Scott. A Gothic novel with elements of historical realism, it enjoyed great success. According to Ellen H. Bleiler in the introduction to her translation of Lucia in the Dover Opera Guide and Libretto Series, the novel had become one of the best-known works of fiction in Western Europe by the time that Donizetti and his librettist Cammarano began to work with it. Cammarano and Donizetti simplified the story greatly and eliminated much of the novel's detail. In the opera, the Ravenswood family has been dispossessed of their ancestral land. The Ashton family has taken their place. Lucia Ashton and her family's enemy Edgardo di Ravenswood have fallen in love with each other. Lucia's brother Enrico wants her to marry a powerful lord, Arturo Bcklaw. Enrico deceives Lucia with forged evidence of Edgardo's unfaithfulness to her. Lucia reluctantly signs a marriage contract with Arturo. Just as she has done so, Edgardo enters and expresses his outrage. The marriage between Lucia and Arturo takes place. On the wedding night, Lucia, who has lost her somewhat fragile sanity, stabs Arturo in the bridal chamber. She then enters the hall where the wedding guests are assembled and sings what is probably the most famous mad scene in all opera. She collapses and later dies. When Edgardo learns of her death, he stabs himself and dies.

Losing My Callas Virginity
There is nothing I can add to the wealth of material that has been written on Callas (a large of amount of it pure trash, to be sure), so I won’t attempt any overreaching statements or opinions.
The most controversial singer of the last century (and perhaps also the greatest), her voice divided opinion from the very beginning, though her brilliant musicianship and theatrical sense were universally acknowledged. As I wrote a while back here, when I first heard her voice, I thought the LP was pressed off-center.
And yet she fascinated me nonetheless, even before I became a Callas freak (memorizing what she sang, where and when, collecting postcards, studying her recordings) – even before all of this, it was the eyes that haunted me: the cat eyes looking sideways, the hair pulled back, the lips preternaturally red on that otherwise all-white cover of the Lucia stereo remake. That, and her strange, imperfect voice which wove itself around me. I found that there were people, some of them quite aware musically, who found it impossible to get beyond the peculiarities of the voice itself to the profound musical intelligence underneath. I have actually questioned my compatibility with friends and lovers who were not beguiled by Callas.

Pensee du moment
The densely encrusted tiaras and parures threw off icy flashes of color—acid yellow, violet, snowy white. Spectral women hovered silently in front of the jewels. There was a will-o’-the-wisp ballerina wearing a crown of dainty white flowers; a somber queen whose huge eyes were dark with encroaching madness; a pagan priestess lost in thought, swept up in the riptide of her doom. The gems were fakes: Swarovski crystals, the same kind that sparkle on the Metropolitan Opera’s chandeliers. And the ghostly ladies were holograms of soprano Maria Callas, on display earlier this year along with her stage jewelry and other memorabilia in the Met’s Founders Hall. The installation of Callas relics blotted out the portraits of Met stalwarts that line the space. That was not the least of the exhibit’s ironies, given that the Washington Heights-born soprano’s appearances with her hometown company were infrequent (twenty-one in all), mediocre (Callas groused of “lousy” productions and mix-and-match casts), and abruptly interrupted when Met intendant Rudolf Bing dismissed her in 1958. Callas lived in New York from her birth in 1923 until 1937, and again from 1945 to 1947. All her life, when she let slip her grand airs, she spoke English with a decided New York snap.

Lucia Berlin died on her birthday: a tragic completion. Jumping around in memories the next day I realised there were none, from mid-1970s California to 21st century Colorado, in which she was not laughing. I remember her pleasure in San Francisco when Holbrook Teter and Michael Myers printed her first book of stories A Manual for Cleaning Ladies (and there it is in the Serendipity Catalog for $75), the first of many remarkable collections. Her delight in teaching, during those Colorado years, earned and echoed the affection and devotion of several generations of students. She gleamed when a lesser spirit would have turned dully inward. Lucia was an emotionally observant story-teller who could write: rare for all cards to be in the same hand. She is to be missed: her books are to be read.

You Can Sleep While I Drive

Liza Wieland
Southern Methodist University Press, $19.95 by Susan Daitch In "Let Me See You Smile" Lawyer Jon Cohen has constructed his life so that very few unpredictable elements will enter it. He has a set routine of friends, dinners, and so on. At the opening of the story he is approached by a teenage boy, Jesse, who will unconsciously challenge that carefully forged stability. Jesse wants Cohen to defend his girlfriend, Carlotta, who was falsely accused of trying to smuggle drugs and weapons on an airplane. In "Silence," a structurally complex story, what appears to be narrative meandering is actually a tightly controlled journey of tragic proportions. A girl growing up in El Paso, lonely, changing schools, and enduring a back brace, finally finds a friend in Hope, the Syrian girl next door. They play jacks, see movies, skate, shoplift and, finally, sell cards together door-to-door for Hope’s brother, Sammy, intending to use the money they earn to buy something for themselves. Sammy, however, pockets their earnings to buy a used car for himself.

LUCIA BERLIN died on her 68th birthday, November 12, 2004. Though she was older than me I felt paternal towards her because she had the same birthday as my son and because she so often seemed like the young girl in her stories. She had a girlish laugh and was fragile so I felt protective of her. I met her when she was first emerging as a writer. She was struggling with alcoholism and a lifetime of various addictions, pain pills for her back (she had scoliosis), cigarettes, and her attraction to men who had worse habits. She cleaned people's houses, worked as a waiting room nurse and her incredible stories gradually made it into typescript. When Holbrook Teter and Michael Myers of Zephyrus Image press in Healdsburg published her Manual for Cleaning Ladies in 1977 everyone was knocked out by the humour, beauty, detail and powerful signs of a great writer. There was a Southern Gothic quality to her writing, like Eudora Welty and Flannery O'Connor, but with a hip modernity. In 1981 her first collection appeared from Turtle Island, called Angel's Landromat (it included Manual for Cleaning Ladies , retitled "Maggie May"). I secured the next piece, entitled

19. Lucia
lucia berlin was perfectly capable of parceling a lot of that money among various needy entities before she left. At any rate the first word I had of this

A Patch of Yellow
For many years Alastair Johnston kept a post office box at the College Avenue station in Berkeley, and one afternoon, in 1987, I drove him over there to retrieve his mail.
On the way out of the parking lot I noticed a woman struggling to extract herself from a boxwood hedge that separated the postal property from the sidewalk. She looked as if she had spent the night there and I said as much. "Christ," Alastair said, looking up from the pile of mail in his lap, "It's Lucia."
And so it was. I pulled the truck to the curb, and we helped Lucia out of the hedge. She had indeed spent the night, or most of it, there, and she was in bad shape. She'd been in her clothes a long time. There were leaves in her hair, dirt under her fingernails, and her face was scratched, but particularly prominent was that stunned, uncertain stare that anyone who has journeyed a station too far with the alcools knows all too well, a state of nerves which its victims have in common with a dog who finds that his trusted mistress has enticed him to the veterinarian's stainless steel table. The booze has absconded with everything energy, physical presence, articulation, self-control, most or all of recent detail and left behind an ashen husk.
On the other hand, as Lucia herself once wrote, "Anybody says he knows just how someone else feels is a fool."

In the great disorder of wartime Berlin, Lucia Muller-Rossi was an unofficial star: mistress to an Ambassador, the whole world to her young son, and guardian of all the lovely things her Jewish friends were forced to leave behind as they took the trains tothe death camps. Sixty years later, one of those fine pieces sits for sale in the window of Lucia's antiques shop and its true owner happens to pass by. In that moment, a whole lifetime of silence cracks open and Lucia's family face the wrenching duty of examining a past almost too horrifying to remember.
