#SeleneGoesBride

„Wie ist Ihr Deutsch?“ – Damit beginnt für Selene Zanetti, Sopranistin aus Italien und neues Ensemblemitglied der Bayerischen Staatsoper, die vielleicht bisher aufregendste Zeit ihrer Karriere. Es ist die Frage, die Staatsintendant Nikolaus Bachler Selene stellt, bevor er ihr die Hauptpartie für die Neuproduktion Die verkaufte Braut anbietet, die am 22. Dezember 2018 Premiere feiert. Die ursprüngliche Besetzung, Christiane Karg, erwartet ein Kind und kann die Partie nicht mehr übernehmen. Selene hat gerade erst zwei Jahre im Opernstudio der Bayerischen Staatsoper absolviert und nur zwei Monate Zeit, die Rolle einzustudieren. Es ist eine gewaltige Chance für die junge Sängerin und eine große Herausforderung. Begleiten Sie Selene über den Hashtag #SeleneGoesBride auf Ihrem spannenden Weg von der Umbesetzung bis zur Premiere und seien Sie ganz nah dabei, wenn Selene zur „verkauften Braut“ wird.

On top of this they had a very nice idea and offered to take some videos and pics showing how my experience is going to be. So here I am to take you with me on this incredible journey! I’ll keep you updated on all the steps I’ll do until the premiere, here and on my Facebook public page! So if you’d like to follow me just stay tuned!!!

Time to memorise... I’m trying to put all of this stuff in my head. Usually it works a lot to sing the part I’m studying, but at the moment I’m a bit sick and I can’t use my voice for a couple of days, so I write. When I was at the university in Padua and I had to prepare an exam, I remember I was writing so much and underlining and using lots of colours to highlight the important things and to remember them better... let’s say that has not changed much... the only difference is that now my “exam” will be sung!!! Which methods do you use to memorise what you need to learn? Any advices? #selenegoesbride #learning #score #dieverkauftebraut #thebarteredbride #smetana #memorizing #sopranolife #operasinger #soprano #opera #lookingforward #excited #bayerischestaatsoper #bsobraut

Soooooooo... today has been the beginning of the new production “Die verkaufte Braut”! I met all my colleagues and we had the first music rehearsal! I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to sing among such great voices! Here I am with my Hans, @breslikpavol and I’m really looking forward to stage and play this piece with him! I’ve already worked with him and something that I’ve always admired in him is how he can enjoy our tiring rehearsals with lots of fun and at the same time be so professional! His example led me to the thought that in English and in German the verb “to play” is used also for other meanings... it could mean “making music” and “acting”... something that as singer you do... at the same time! I was so nervous before starting and in this job, the responsibility and its pressure could pull you down, but if you follow this “meanings”, everything can suddenly be much lighter and easy... and funny... I swear me and Pavol are having great laughs!!! I think this could work for many things in life and this is what I’d like to learn and keep with me from today! I wish you a good night! #selenegoesbride #dieverkauftebraut #smetana #thoughts #positivity #music #bayerischestaatsoper #BSObraut #operasinger #soprano #operalife #exciting #marieundhans #learning #lookingforward #sopranolife #meanings #playing

Magic every day! When you say #ilovemyjob and you truly mean it!!! This new production is giving me so much!!! Every day a new challenge. Everyday a new experience!!! ...and I’m not just talking about musical stuff!!! Today, for example, I’ve learnt how to make candy floss (ciao diet!!!)!!! #bayerischestaatsoper is famous for its magic and I can confirm it! This new production “Die verkaufte Braut”, staged by the amazing David Bösch will take everybody through joy, fun, tears and tears of laughter, but -of course- to a happy end! I’m not allowed to spoil anything before the premiere, but I’d like sooooo much to show you, for example, with who (...or what?!) I had the chance to “sing”!!! I can just say that his name is Willy and makes very cute sounds!!! Or I’d love to tell you how I learnt how to “drive” some extra vehicles on stage... Aaaaargh! I need to bite my tongue!!!!!! By the way something is completely sure: I need to go running to get more breath for some “acrobatic activities”!!! I love it! I love it! I love it! ...and I still didn’t mention the beauty of the music!!! #selenegoesbride #bsobraut @bayerischestaatsoper #dieverkauftebraut #sopranolife #operasinger #happy #amazingstaging #playing #learning #lookingforward #smetana
