Composer: Gaetano Donizetti

Donizetti, succeeding Rossini and preceding Verdi, played a decisive role in the evolution of Italian opera in the nineteenth century. A musician of prolific prolificacy, he is the author of seventy-one operas. However, he only met with success late in comparison with the dazzling careers of some of his contemporaries. In 1822 he moved to Naples and began writing operas. But he did not know his first great success until eight years later with the creation of Anna Bolena, which is his first composition inspired by his fascination with the history of the English Renaissance. Maria Stuarda and, two years later, Roberto Devereux, will be followed on this theme in 1835. These three works form her "Trilogies of the English Queens". An island in northern Europe, two sovereigns: the Catholic Mary Stuart, queen of Scotland and the Anglican Elizabeth, who reign over England, are waging a merciless psychological war for power. And as if that were not enough, they are also fighting over the love of the same man, Robert Dudley. Passion, power and religion are therefore at the heart of Donizetti's book. The musician probes with delight and subtlety the depths of the human soul with a lyricism as expansive as melancholy. A depth and a truth of the tragic feeling that Verdi will bring to the zenith a few decades later.
