[ Opera Rara / 2 CD Box Set ]
Release Date: Wednesday 20 March 2019
Opera Rara presents, 179 years after it was written, the world premiere recording of a Donizetti 'lost' masterpiece, restored and brought thrillingly back to life. Written in 1839 for the Theâtre de la Renaissance in Paris, rehearsals started but the theatre went bankrupt and the opera was never performed - until 2018. Taken from two acclaimed concert performances at the Royal Opera House, L'Ange de Nisida is a fascinating and passionate drama, full of exciting vocal writing, composed by Donizetti near to the end of his life.
