Gaetano Donizetti: Linda di Chamounix

Jessica Pratt, Francesco Demuro, Michele Pertusi
{{ message.content }}

Donizetti's depictions of madness are famous: loved by audiences, and approached with respect and plenty of preparation by the soloists. His late opera Linda di Chamounix is no exception, building towards the protagonist's madness scene in the second act. After a long odyssey, her fate is finally fulfilled in true love. Donizetti's music intelligently and entertainingly illuminates the not-always-so-opposed opposites city/countryside and love/madness. We can't wait to see how Michele Gamba leads the Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, allowing Jessica Pratt and Francesco Demuro to shine in the lead roles.
