Il Guarany


Il Guarany

Il Guarany ("The Guarany") is an Italian opera-ballo by Carlos Gomes, based on the Brazilian novel "O Guarani", written by José de Alencar. The libretto was written by Antonio Scalvini and Carlo D'Ormeville.

Performance history

The world premiere was at La Scala, Milan on March 19, 1870. The opera received additional European productions. The first Brazilian performance was in Rio de Janeiro on 2 December 1870, at the Teatro Lírico Fluminense. The opera is notable as the first Brazilian opera to gain international acclaim outside of Brazil.Volpe, Maria Alice, "Remaking the Brazilian Myth of National Foundation: "Il Guarany" (Autumn-Winter 2002). "Latin American Music Review"/"Revista de Música Latinoamericana", 23 (2): pp. 179-194.]

Maria Alice Volpe has analysed the historical subtext of the "Indianismo" movement behind the opera.
