L’opéra-opérette d’essence anglaise avant Gilbert et Sullivan, c’est Macfarren. Son Robin Hood de 1860 représente le summum de l’art lyrique britannique, voire victorien ; naturellement, l’ombre de l’Europe continentale plane sur tout l’ouvrage, d’autant qu’à l’époque, il n’existait pas encore de véritable style spécifiquement outre-manchesque. Macfarren, né en 1813 (comme Verdi et Wagner), surprendra l’auditeur par l’originalité de son invention mélodique, ainsi que la finesse de son orchestration. Mendelssohn lui-même n’avait-il pas inscrit quelques-unes de ses œuvres au programme du Gewandhaus de Leipzig ? Wagner lui-même, monsieur dent dure s’il en est, se montra très admiratif de l’une des ouvertures de Macfarren. A vous donc de vous faire votre propre idée sur ce compositeur, à travers l’une de ses plus grandes réussites.

    Robin Hood alterne chevalerie, farce, pompe et humour anglais, avec un zeste de moralité, de chauvinisme britannique, et une forte dose d’autodérision – le meilleur contrepoison contre le chauvinisme. Voilà une contribution fort bienvenue au répertoire disco-lyrique, bien loin des trop fréquentes platitudes du bel-canto et des lourds drames historiques du grrrrrrand opéra français. A découvrir !
