    The same can be said of marriage . . . but look at the divorce rate!

    A great match for Renata's vocal style, this opera gets no respect but is has great music and many nice arias, we are lucky to have that Decca studio recording with "A" list cast.

    It is a pity the beautiful Leyla Gencer did not spend time in the studio.

    Oh, OK. That Anna. When you said "spent a weekend with Anna" I got jealous.

    Well, and of course, this one is also missing:

    I wanted to revisit Imelda since JohnGerald (? was it?) mentioned I Capuleti e i Montecchi with Cabell...

    Name:  Imelda de'Lambertazzi - Mark Elder 2007 Opera Rara.jpg
Views: 31
Size:  44.6 KB

    Donizetti: Imelda de’ Lambertazzi
    Nicole Cabell (Imelda), James Westman (Bonifacio Geremei), Massimo Giordano (Lamberto), Frank Lopardo (Orlando Lambertazzi), Brindley Sherratt (Ubaldo)
    Geoffrey Mitchell Choir & Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment,
    Mark Elder
    Recorded February & Mar 2007, Henry Wood Hall, London

    The essay in the booklet by Jeremy Commons tells us that the duet between Imelda and Bonifacio was revised for Anna Bolena for Giuditta Pasta (Anna) and Giovanni Battista Rubini (Percy).
    Despite spending nearly nine hours with Anna over the weekend, before reading the booklet (for the second time)...
    Where do I know that from?...
    dumb a$$!

    Too busy today to sit and watch anything. So, I decided on an old favorite - I love studio recordings!

    More Donizetti tragedy, again love destroyed by Guelphs and Ghibellines feud. This one a later work, first premiered in 1837 (as opposed to Imelda 1830) but with many revisions later. The Opera Rara recording includes recordings for three further revisions.

    Both Opera Rara recordings of Imelda de' Lambertazzi and Pia de' Tolomei are available to listen to for free (with advertisements probably between acts) on spotify...
    I would recommend them to any Donizetti fans; romantic, melodic passages and fine performances in both.
