Griselda (Giovanni Bononcini)

Griselda is a dramma per musica in three acts that was composed by Giovanni Bononcini. The opera uses a revised version of the 1701 Italian libretto by Apostolo Zeno that was based on Giovanni Boccaccio’s The Decameron (X, 10, “The Patient Griselda”). The Italian poet Paolo Antonio Rolli was hired to revise the text. Bononcini’s opera premiered in London at the King’s Theatre on 22 February 1722. From the opera, an aria “Per la gloria d’adorarvi” is nowadays a famous and popular concert piece, with opera singers such as Oleg Ryabets (performed in 2001, at Kasals Hall, Tokyo, and in 2005, at Festival Die Metamorfosen by Georges-Emmanuel Schneider, Interlaken)

, or Ramon Vargas (recording in 2002, Arie Antiche).

Bononcini’s brother, Antonio Maria Bononcini water pack, also composed his own opera to Zeno’s libretto four years earlier.

The plot of Zeno’s libretto was for the most part retained in Bononcini’s opera but the text was almost entirely rewritten by Paolo Antonio Rolli. The character Corrado was eliminated entirely and three of the main characters were renamed: Ottone became Rambaldo, Costanza became Almirena, and Roberto became Ernesto. The work was received well at its premiere and was successively performed numerous times over the next four months. One of the major reasons for this success was the prodigious acting and singing talent of Anastasia Robinson, who portrayed the title role. The opera was later revived by Handel and Heidegger’s company on 22 May 1733 under the urging of Francesco Bernardi, called Senesino, who portrayed Gualtiero in the original production.

Griselda is one of only two London operas for which Bononcini published the overture and all the arias. Charles Burney owned a score of Griselda, but neither it nor any other score including recitatives is extant.

Bononcini’s music, although well crafted, is at times strangely juxtaposed to the opera’s plot and text. The opera is filled with dulcet arias which are reminiscent of a pastoral opera rather than a story about a vindictive tyrant. Regardless, the music is enchanting and is largely responsible for the success of the work. Richard Steele wrote in The Conscious Lovers (1722), this about the opera’s music: “. . . something in that Rural Cottage of Griselda, her forlorn Condition, her Poverty, her Solitude, her Resignation, her Innocent Slumbers, and that lulling Dolce Sogno that’s sung over her; it had an Effect upon me, that—in short I never was so well deceiv’d at any [other Opera].” Probably the most famous song from the opera is Ernesto’s aria, “Per la gloria d’adorarvi,” which remains to this day a popular selection for concert and recital performance. Other notable pieces include “Dolce sogno, deh le porta” and “Volgendo, a me lo sguardo” for Gualtiero. These three arias were very popular and were reprinted, for example in Richard Neale’s A Pocket Companion for Gentlemen and Ladies (London, 1724) and in The British Musical Miscellany (London, 1735).

Place: Near Palermo in Sicily.

King Gualtiero has married Griselda, a peasant woman and his longtime mistress, and fears that she will not be accepted among the nobility. Concerned that a rebellion might arise, the king decides he must prove that Griselda is worthy to be their queen and the mother of their future king. He tests her virtue and steadfastness with a series of cruel ordeals, including telling her a lie that their long-lost daughter was killed on his orders. Gualtiero banishes Griselda from the court and announces that he intends to take another wife, the young woman Almirena, who is, unknown to all, their missing daughter. Almirena is highly upset over the king’s proposal as she is in love with Ernesto.

Meanwhile, Griselda has returned to the humble cottage where she once lived. A beautiful woman, she has caught the attention of Rambaldo, a Sicilian nobleman, who attempts to woo her. After refusing him, Rambaldo threatens to kill her infant son, Everardo, unless she agrees to marry him. Griselda refuses and flees to the palace where she is permitted to stay as a servant to Almirena. Gualtiero, as a final test, orders Griselda to marry Rambaldo, which she refuses to his satisfaction vinegar meat tenderizer. The king reveals his true motive for tormenting her and accepts her again as his queen to the satisfaction of Almirena and Ernesto who can now be reunited. Rambaldo, who confesses to have stirred up the nobles in the hope of winning Griselda, is forgiven.

Gruppo Sportivo Armando Casalini

Il Gruppo Sportivo Armando Casalini è stata una società polisportiva bresciana fondata nel 1928 e intitolata al deputato fascista Armando Casalini, assassinato nel 1924. Aveva sede a Brescia in via Trento n.37 e poi in via Trieste n.10. Comprendeva una sezione calcistica, una ciclistica, una atletica e una bocciofila.

È stata nel periodo compreso tra le due guerre la seconda squadra calcistica per importanza della provincia di Brescia. Al tempo erano famosi gli infuocati derby con la terza società cittadina: la Trivellini, intitolata all’ex calciatore del Brescia Luigi Trivellini, deceduto nella prima guerra mondiale.

Nel 1928, primo anno di attività, la Casalini ottenne un significativo secondo posto nella coppa Sorlini.

Nel 1929 conquistò la coppa Ferrari e l’anno successivo ottenne il secondo posto nella coppa del Popolo di Brescia.

Nel 1931 si piazzò al terzo posto nel campionato provinciale U.L.I.C. Bresciano e vinse la coppa della Canicola (una “classica” giocata a 6 giocatori).

Le migliori stagioni furono quelle a partire dal 1936-1937, quando vinse il campionato Bresciano della Sezione Propaganda e successivamente si iscrisse in Prima Divisione Lombarda

La stagione successiva, il 1937-1938, vinse il suo girone accedendo alle finali, assieme a Como, Bareggio e Codogno. Con il bilancio di tre vittorie e tre pareggi vinse anche il girone finale e venne promossa in Serie C con il Como bpa free glasses.

In Serie C militò per tre stagioni, dalla stagione 1938-39 alla stagione 1940-41.

Nel primo campionato sfiorò la promozione in Serie B: a sei giornate dal termine raggiunse la testa della classifica dopo un lungo inseguimento, mettendo assieme undici partite utili consecutive. Perse lo scontro diretto con la Cremonese e alla penultima giornata anche quello con la Falck di Sesto San Giovanni, che la superarono in classifica. La squadra si piazzò al quarto posto, a soli quattro punti dalla Reggiana poi promossa in Serie B, suo miglior piazzamento di sempre.

Negli anni successivi continuò a farsi onore piazzandosi al quinto posto nel 1939-40 e al decimo nel 1940-1941.

La società in crisi finanziaria best leak proof water bottle, in pieno periodo di guerra, non si iscrisse al campionato di Serie C del 1941-42 e si sciolse definitivamente nel 1942.

Siegfried Donndorf

Siegfried Donndorf (* 13. Oktober 1900 in Salbke; † 31. März 1957 in Dresden) war ein deutscher Maler und Bühnenbildner lint remover.

Donndorf wurde als Sohn des evangelischen Pfarrers an der Salbker Sankt-Gertraud-Kirche geboren. Sein Bruder war der spätere Theologe Gotthold Donndorf. Von 1920 bis 1922 studierte er in Berlin bei Emil Orlik. Er setzte sein Studium dann von 1923 bis 1930 bei Richard Dreher und Adolf Mahnke an der Akademie für Bildende Künste Dresden fort. Im Alter von 29 Jahren gewann er den Staatspreis für Landschaftsmalerei, wodurch ihm eine Studienreise nach Italien möglich war. In Dresden wurde Donndorf Mitglied der kommunistischen Künstlergruppe ASSO, die 1933 verboten wurde meat mallet alternative. 1935/36 unterrichtete er Zeichnen und Malen an der Akademie. In der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus war er auch als Bühnenbildner am Staatstheater Dresden und dem Stadttheater Teschen tätig. Von 1939 bis 1941 leistete er Wehrdienst.

Nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs engagierte er sich beim kulturellen Wiederaufbau der Stadt und gehörte 1947 zu den Mitgründern der Künstlervereinigung Das Ufer – Gruppe 1947. Er wurde Leiter der gemeinsam mit Rolf Krause, Ewald Schönberg, Rudolf Bergander, Rudolf Nehmer, Karl-Erich Schaefer und Fritz Skade gebildeten Gruppe. Das Ufer engagierte sich pädagogisch und gesellschaftlich. Mentor der Gruppe war der Freund Donndorfs Kurt Liebmann. Die zahlenmäßig gewachsene Gruppe bestand bis 1951 und löste sich dann auf staatlichen Druck zu Gunsten des Künstlerverbandes auf. Bis zum Tode Donndorfs bestand die Gruppe jedoch innerhalb des Verbandes weiter. Sein künstlerisches Schaffen befasste sich in dieser Zeit in Zeichnung und Malerei mit dem Wiederaufbau der schwer kriegszerstörten Stadt. Donndorfs Bilder, häufig Landschaftsdarstellungen, werden durch einen feinsinnigen Farbklang geprägt. 1953 übernahm er den Vorsitz der Verkaufsgenossenschaft Kunst der Zeit. Donndorf bemühte sich über längere Zeit, für seine Künstlergruppe eine Ausstellung im westlichen Teil Deutschlands zu organisieren. Schließlich ermöglichte ihm sein Bruder, der das Rauhe Haus in Hamburg leitete, dort eine Ausstellung durchzuführen

. Die erforderlichen Genehmigungen der DDR-Behörden verzögerten das Projekt noch um etwa ein Jahr. Schließlich fand die Ausstellung 1955 statt. Es war die erste in sich geschlossene Ausstellung von DDR-Künstlern in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland.

Donndorf verstarb nach kurzer schwerer Krankheit im Alter von 56 Jahren.

The flowers are scented and arranged in corymb-like groups on erect stalks usually from 5 to 9 mm (0.2 to 0.4 in) long. The flowers are pale to bright mauve-pink and fade to white as they age. The floral cup is shaped like half a sphere, about 1.5 mm (0.06 in) long, smooth but hairy near its base. The sepals are 3.5–4 mm (0.14–0.16 in) long, with 2 to 4 lobes which have a fringe of coarse hairs. The petals are a similar colour to the sepals, 1.6–2.0 mm (0.06–0.08 in) long, egg-shaped with many filaments on their ends. The style is 5–6 mm (0.20–0.24 in) long, extends beyond the petals, is curved and hairy and has a thickened base. Flowering occurs from December to January.

Verticordia densiflora was first formally described by John Lindley in 1839 and the description was published in A Sketch of the Vegetation of the Swan River Colony. In 1991

, Alex George undertook a review of the genus Verticordia and described five varieties of Verticordia densiflora including this variety.

This variety of V. densiflora grows in sandy soil or sand with clay or loam, often in winter-wet areas or in degraded, weed-infested areas. It is found in a small area near Busselton in the Jarrah Forest and Swan Coastal Plain biogeographic regions.

Verticordia densiflora var. pedunculata is classsified as “Threatened Flora (Declared Rare Flora — Extant)” by the Western Australian Government Department of Parks and Wildlife and as “Endangered” (EN) under the Australian Government Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). In 1997 the total population of mature plants was estimated to be 500. The main threats to the variety are thought to be land clearing for urban development and degradation of road verges.

Little is known about the growing requirements of this variety but research needs to be undertaken to help ensure its continued existence.

Jeanne de Béthune, Viscountess of Meaux

Jeanne de Béthune, Viscountess of Meaux, Countess of Ligny (c.1397- late 1450), was a French noblewoman, the suo jure Viscountess of Meaux, having inherited the title upon her father’s death in 1408. Her father was Robert VIII de Béthune, Viscount of Meaux. Jeanne married twice; firstly to Robert of Bar, and secondly John II of Luxembourg, Count of Ligny who held Joan of Arc prisoner following her capture by the Burgundians in May 1430. Jeanne was one of the three women who cared for Joan during her imprisonment.

Jeanne was born in about 1397, the eldest daughter of Robert VIII de Béthune, Viscount of Meaux, and his third wife Isabelle de Ghistelles. She had one younger sister, Jacqueline de Béthune who married Raoul d’Ailly, with whom she had a daughter. Her paternal grandparents were Jean de Béthune, Lord of Locres (Loker in Flemish), and his wife Jeanne de Coucy, while her maternal grandparents were Jean de Ghistelles (Gistel in Flemish) and Marguerite de Reingleset (Reigersvliet in Flemish).

After campaigning successfully against the English as Lieutenant-Governor of Guienne, in February 1408 her father died. As he had no male heirs, Jeanne, being his eldest daughter, succeeded to the title suo jure of Viscountess of Meaux

, Jeanne married her first husband, Robert of Bar, the son Henry of Bar and Marie de Coucy, Countess of Soissons. In August 1413, he was created Count of Marle and Soissons, and Lord of Oisy, titles which he had inherited from his mother. King John II of France and King Edward III of England were two of his great-grandfathers. Together Robert and Jeanne had one daughter:

Robert was one of the many French nobles killed at the Battle of Agincourt on 25 October 1415, leaving Jeanne a widow of eighteen with an infant daughter who as sole heiress succeeded to her father’s titles and estates. Jeanne married secondly on 23 November 1418, John II of Luxembourg, Count of Ligny. The marriage, however, did not produce any children.

Jeanne’s second husband, who was an ally of the English during the last phase of the Hundred Years War, received Joan of Arc as his prisoner following her capture by the Burgundians in May 1430. She was held in his castle of Beaurevoir, close to Saint-Quentin. Jeanne was one of the three women in whose custody Joan was placed. The other two ladies were Jeanne’s daughter, Jeanne, and Jeanne of Luxembourg, John’s elderly aunt. Jeanne and the other ladies did all they could to comfort Joan, and they also tried to persuade her, to no avail, to discard her masculine clothing and adopt feminine attire. The ladies earned Joan’s gratitude for their kindness to her whilst in their care. In the 1994 film by Jacques Rivette ″Jeanne la pucelle: 2. Les prisons″ (in English Joan the Maiden, Part 2: The Prisons), Jeanne was played by Édith Scob.

, John sold Joan to the English for 10,000 livres despite the protests of the three women. Joan was tried by an ecclesiastical court and burned at the stake in Rouen on 30 May 1431.

On 18 September 1430, John’s aunt, Jeanne of Luxembourg died. She left him the county of Ligny, thus Jeanne was styled henceforth as Countess of Ligny

Jeanne married her only daughter to Louis of Luxembourg, Count of Saint-Pol, who was John’s nephew and designated heir; he had been brought up under his uncle’s provision at Beaurevoir Castle therefore the young couple were well-acquainted with one another. The marriage, which took place on 16 July 1435, produced seven children.

Widowed a second time in 1441 when aged about 44, it was proposed that Jeanne should marry Jean d’Orléans, Count of Angoulême and of Périgord, a prisoner in England since 1412. When he did get back to France after 33 years’ captivity, he married a younger woman who gave him three children.

Jeanne de Béthune died in late 1450, almost ten years after her husband, John. Her daughter Jeanne succeeded her as suo jure Viscountess of Meaux.
