the il trovatore brothers are the funniest thing in the world to me. i don鈥檛 think this is a slight against the opera (no tragedy works without good comedy) but please i need you to take my hand and see my vision here
IMAGINE you are a commoner in aragon and you hear that the old count di luna, who for the sake of the argument i imagine as being roughly the human equivalent of a german shepherd, has died and his son frederic is now the new count di luna. Your first thought is 鈥渉is son鈥檚 not dead?鈥 because you were SURE that strange weirdly tall sickly boy you remember having a foot in the grave when he was like 12 was Gone by this point but apparently not. 鈥淣o the other son died this one is alright鈥 Sure. Yeah. Before you realize that everything is a sham operation in Aragon you鈥檙e willing to believe this one.
As a child frederic was like a sickly victorian boy who鈥檚 response to any unusual stimuli was to cover his head with his hands and shake violently, and who could Only tolerate a supper of mushy carrots and warm broth lest he lose his appetite and faint the next day, and who Always referred to everyone else by their full titles and would put on a strangely adultlike air lest his father take him around the back of the castle for physical punishment. you go to meet the new count, now that he鈥檚 an adult and in charge of the property, and you鈥檙e greeted with a man who is 1) Exactly the same height he was as a boy (he was 5鈥2鈥 in the second grade, which was freakishly tall then, but then he just stopped growing when he was 7 apparently) and 2) Entirely decked out in sparkly clothing. 鈥淚t鈥檚 a statement,鈥 he explains. you don鈥檛 know what angle the statement is coming from. he cannot properly sit in chairs and has a variety of jointed wood toy animals on his desk he plays with when he gets listless. he鈥檚 suddenly full of energy, the sort that would have killed him as a young boy, but he still will respond to unusual situations by covering his eyes with his hands or just turning around to face the wall (or, alternately, hissing at people). he has an attempt at a mustache like his old man鈥檚 but it鈥檚 just sort of sad and because he鈥檚 extremely blonde it just looks like a variety of mold growth. unfortunately this man was born too early to throw all his riches into an eccentric but ill-fated theme park so you have to deal with this Thing until then.
MEANWHILE one day you take a wander around and see the largest fucking man you鈥檝e ever seen in your life carrying a good chunk of a whole ass tree. it鈥檚 not even that he鈥檚 Tall, although he is, he鈥檚 just the sort of man the phrase 鈥渂uilt like a brick shithouse鈥 was invented for. he鈥檚 hairy and gruff and weirdly youthful and you have No idea what this discount paul bunyan fuck is doing so you go to approach him. 鈥淥h, Ma needed kindling鈥, he says in the manner of a well meaning farmhand. then you see him pluck an acorn off the part of the tree he鈥檚 carrying and eat it raw. he offers it to you and reasons they鈥檙e 鈥渜uite good actually鈥. you鈥檙e too stupefied to actually respond either way. How old is he? Oh he鈥檚 only seventeen. Okay. Sure. later in the night you hear some beautiful but INCREDIBLY leather-lunged singing and come to find the giant from earlier has a wee lute that he plucks incredibly gently. you tell him he鈥檚 doing a nice job playing it but he needs to quiet down because you鈥檙e trying to sleep. 鈥渢he lute is a she, not an it, you need to respect women,鈥 he says. it sounds like the corny sort of thing you鈥檇 see on 2018 tumblr but somehow he鈥檚 completely serious. (does he respect women? what the fuck is he talking about? you don鈥檛 actually know the answer to either question.)
You are only going to realize the fictional nature of your life when you hear the news that one killed the other (despite the killed one probably being capable of crushing the killer鈥檚 spine on accident) and then it turned out they were secretly BROTHERS somehow,

recently i鈥檝e become aware that while i absolutely love teenage opera characters and find them endearing (cherubino, manrico, gilda, zerlina and masetto, etc) i think teenage musical characters are like nails on a chalkboard, and furthermore, i think there are TOO MANY musicals about teenagers and we need to stop making them for a few years bc they are flooding the market. and while in the shower today i think ive figured out why
opera characters are not human. not entirely human anyway. they operate on the same boundaries as Human Muppets
Tumblr media
we understand that walter from the muppets (2011) is species wise a human. but he is not human in the same way his brother Actor And Writer Jason Segel is. which doesn鈥檛 get in the way of us relating to him- we do empathize with him! greatly! he鈥檚 the audience surrogate!- but we see him as primarily 1) Muppet and 2) Human. 鈥淢uppet/Non-Muppet鈥 is a categorization on the level of species and gender. i think opera characters work exactly the same way in that while they are all humans species wise 鈥渙pera character鈥 takes priority as a label and therefore we aren鈥檛 meant to entirely see them as just, yknow, random humans. It鈥檚 sort of a Noh mask like quality. Therefore 鈥渙pera characters that are teenagers鈥 is something of a different label than just 鈥渢eenagers鈥
2) The concept of teenagerhood as its own rite of passage was not very much of a thing for most of opera history. So for example when Francesco Piave was writing the libretto for Rigoletto he was not looking at Gilda (who鈥檚 meant to be 14) and going 鈥渙kay so what does a TEENAGER act like鈥 he got back with 鈥渙kay what does a FOURTEEN YEAR OLD act like鈥. The removal of 鈥渢eenager鈥 as a category to 1) generalize and more importantly 2) To pander to means that instead of coming across like the sort of rebellious teenager we would probably imagine NOW when 鈥渟heltered teen girl who鈥檚 secretly dating someone behind her dad鈥檚 back鈥 gilda comes across like the sort of nice christian probably-autistic girl who you would encounter on a warrior cats roleplay forum or a littlest pet shop youtube video comments section in 2013
3) On that note the lack of 鈥渨e gotta pander to teens!鈥 means that opera is able to portray teenagers as 1) batshit but more importantly 2) Decidedly uncool and not in a hollywood way
I forgot where I was going with this. Anyway I love tearing into musicals about teenagers they鈥檙e like a pumpkin with meat inside of it and I am a bored tiger in a zoo enclosure
