200 unheard songs by Donizetti?Uncategorized
Opera Rara plans to record them.
A strong focus on the music of Donizetti marks the 225th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Tenor Laurence Brownlee, baritone Etienne Dupuis and Opera Rara Artistic Ambassadors, Ermonela Jaho and Michael Spyres, join Opera Rara Artistic Director Carlo Rizzi to headline the Donizetti Song Project (beginning September 2023), which over three years will feature performances at London’s Wigmore Hall, and recordings of almost 200 of the composer’s songs, many to be heard for the first time. A concert performance and recording of L’esule di Roma marks the completion of Opera Rara’s 27th Donizetti revival (11 May 2023, Cadogan Hall, London).
