Opera Rara to Release Donizetti in the 1830s Boxset

By Francisco Salazar

Opera Rara will conclude its 50th anniversary celebration with a limited-edition boxset of three Donizetti operas composed during the 1830s.

The box seat will include “Il diluvio universale,” “Ugo conte di Parigi,” and “L’assedio di Calais” and will feature remastered editions with the highest audio quality and accompanied by a newly commissioned essay by Donizetti specialist and Opera Rara’s Artistic Dramaturg, Roger Parker.

Opera Rara’s 50th anniversary celebrations began in autumn 2020 with the release of Ermonela Jaho’s first solo disc, Anima Rara. She later performed many of the album’s pieces in recital at Wigmore Hall.

This December, Carlo Rizzi will conduct his first full opera with Opera Rara since becoming Artistic Director. The company will perform and record Leoncavallo’s “Zingari” with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Carlos Álvarez and Krassimura Stoyanova.
