Donizetti: Lucrezia Borgia / Severini, Theodossiou, de Biasio [DVD]

Album Summary

>Donizetti, Gaetano : Lucrezia Borgia
Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Based on Victor Hugo's most sensational play, Lucrece Borgia, a scandalous tale of murder, torture, incest, homosexuality, drunkenness and orgies, Donizetti's opera is one of the great masterpieces of Italian bel canto repertoire. While omitting some of its more excessive elements, the libretto by Felice Romani inspired Donizetti to compose superb arias, duets, ensembles and choruses, bringing each act to a stirring conclusion. Beautifully costumed and designed, brimming with high drama and pathos, this production stars in the infamous title role Greek diva Dimitra Theodossiou, praised for her stupendous acting and singing in Donizetti's 'Roberto Devereux'.
