Notes & Reviews:

Maria de Rudenz is one of the strangest and yet most interesting of Donizetti's operas. It is based on 'The Bloodstained Nun,' a gruesome melodrama which stunned Paris theatergoers in 1835. The play's gothic horror story concludes with the heroine, having murdered most of the other cast members, setting fire to her castle and dying in the arms of her true love. Opera Rara's production is first class all around.
