At The Opera, Bellini: I Puritani October 12, 2013

  

I puritani (The Puritans) is an opera in three acts by Vincenzo Bellini. It was his last opera. Its libretto is by Count Carlo Pepoli, based on Têtes rondes et Cavaliers by Jacques-François Ancelot and Joseph Xavier Saintine, which is in turn based on Walter Scott's novel Old Mortality. It was first produced at the Théâtre-Italien in Paris,  January 24, 1835. This 1973 Decca recording stars Joan Sutherland and Luciano Pavarotti. Richard Bonynge conducts.
