Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

'Elvida' is one of the most intriguing titles in the Donizetti canon - a one-act melodrama - which was very unusual for this period. Donizetti provided the work for a special occasion, the birthday of Maria Isabella of Spain, the wife of Francesco 1 of Naples. It would make a delightful present for anyone as it contains so much wonderful music. "Opera Rara's genius lies in its ability to attract talent." - BBC Music Magazine
