La Favorite by Gaetano Donizetti Orchestra of St. Luke’s

Will Crutchfield, Caramoor’s Director of Opera, comments:

French operas of Italian masters, cont’d: La Favorite continues Caramoor’s track record of reviving the Parisian grand operas of the Italian masters.  Rossini’s Guillaume Tell in 2011 won recognition in the national and international press for its revelation the composer’s final masterwork for the stage; Verdi’s Les vêpres siciliennes and Don Carlos followed to similar acclaim in 2013, and now it is Donizetti’s turn.   La Favorite was the second of the four works he completed for the Paris Opera, and was such a success that it was given there every single season from 1840 to 1894, with occasional revivals up to 1918.  But after that the opera circulated mostly in a heavily censored Italian translation and the world lost sight of Donizetti’s original.
