16133 Donizetti: Aristea

Librettist Giovanni Schmidt recycled Aristea from an earlier abandoned opera set in idyllic Greek surroundings. This tells the classical story of enforced separation of a father from his daughter, their subsequent confusions and final happy reunion. Donizetti’s early style was influenced by Rossini...

After extensive research of music of that period, North gathered a collection of antique instruments that, while not authentically Roman, provided...
