I puritani is one of Bellinis most creative and influential masterpieces, a bel canto opera stamped with vocal and orchestral writing of intoxicating beauty and dramatic intensity.

Set in England in the Civil War shortly before Oliver Cromwells triumph, it involves romantic and political intrigues that drew from Bellini music of melodic raptness and melancholic depth.

It also inspired him to compose some of his most breathtakingly virtuosic passages, notably Elviras Mad Scene, that call for the utmost in theatrical power. This production includes all the music performed at the works Paris premiere.

History

Vincenzo Bellini’s I Puritani

Bellini’s last opera, a love story set against the background of the English Civil War in the 1640s, is a vocal showcase that features another of the composer’s great mad scenes for the leading soprano. The work’s 1835 premiere starred four of the most prominent singers of the day who afterwards became known as the “Puritani quartet.”
