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.”
