Rene Fleming and Uma Thurman share an odyssey

Thurman It’s kind of like white space. But in fact, there should be architecture inside. In this part, we switch between these two disciplines and environments in a very compact way.

The spoken text, however, is quite musical. What do you need to show this in delivery?

Thurman You have to break things down into patterns of vowel sounds and muscular nouns that paint pictures and find the pace and space. This is due to vowel swirling and the choice of T’s and the like. But overall I think Tom Stoppard’s use of language is sublime. He has three times the vocabulary of any other person. Very keen eyes also helped me in this. I would not interpret Stoppard only with my intelligence.

FLEMING I think he’s a genius, to be honest. During my first engagement at the Royal Opera in London, I saw Arcadia, which was brand new at the time, and I was completely hooked. Vocally, “Penelope” is like a long recitative. Andre was melodic by nature, but for that, because of all the lyrics, I just hum the words in the field. And I try my best to make them understand.

How has this job changed your relationship with Penelope as a character?

FLEMING I said to Tom: I want to know why Penelope was waiting. But this did not suit him, and he is Tom Stoppard, so it is obvious that he wrote it the way he saw it. There’s a lot in the original story that annoys us today – like killing all those maids because they did what they were forced to do? He did not soften any of these points.

Thurman Interestingly, having been a big fan of myth since childhood, I just bought a nice children’s book for my 9 year old daughter, read to her and got hooked on her again. We are dealing with our history; let’s be real. Volume did edit one link that was related to women’s work. It didn’t come from him, it was an interpretation of our history, but it was too much.

FLEMING From the very beginning, one of the things I was involved with was this incredible technique of her weaving and unweaving the tapestry every night for many years. For me, this concept is so musical. Every version of Goethe’s Faust has some intertwining aria. I admired Penelope’s intelligence and the strength of her convictions.
