Dejeneiras Death Part One

Hagar Sharvit in a rehearsal at the Staatstheater Oldenburg. It’s the Death-scene of Dejeneira in Handels HERCULES. Jörg Halubek is conducting, Anorthe Eckert is playing the piano. Kerstin, Marina and Julia as Furies. Staged by Jürgen R. Weber.

DEJANEIRA

O fatal error of misguided love!

O cruel Nessus, how art thou reveng’d!

Wretched I am! By me Alcides dies!

These impious hands have sent my injur’d lord

Untimely to the shades! Let me be mad!

Chain me, ye Furies, to your iron beds,

And lash my guilty ghost with whips of scorpions!

See, see, they come! Alecto with her snakes,

Megaera fell, and black Tisiphone!

See the dreadful sisters rise,

Their baneful presence taints the skies!

See the snaky whips they bear!

What yellings rend my tortur’d ear!

DEJANEIRA

Was für ein bekloppter Irrtum ausgehend von krankhaft emotionaler Fixierung!

Dieser dösbaddelige Zentaur! Wie oberfies hat er sich gerächt!

Was für ein Mist! Ich hab Herkules unter die Erde gebracht!

Diese Patschehände haben meinen Knuddelbären viel zu früh um die Ecke gebracht!

Ich dreh jetzt komplett durch!

Lasst die Furien mich durch den Fleischwolf drehen!

Da kommen sie wie auf Stichwort!

Mit all ihren S/M Utensilien…

DEATH of a DIRECTOR, an INTERN and a GUITARPLAYER…

An der Guitarre:    Tomasz Wija

Am Klavier (und den Chorus singend): Anorthe Eckert

Unschuldige Opfer von Hercules’: Meike und Jürgen

 

 

CHORUS

Love and Hymen, hand in hand,

Come, restore the nuptial band!

HERCULES

O Jove, what land is this, what clime accurst,

By raging Phoebus scorch’d? I burn, I burn,

Tormenting fire consumes me. Oh, I die,

Some ease, ye pitying powers!

— I rage, I rage,

With more than Stygian pains.

Along my feverish veins,

Like liquid fire the subtle poison hastes.
