Rosmonda d'Inghilterra

Rosmonda d'Inghilterra

"Rosmonda d'Inghilterra" ("Rosamund of England") is a "melodramma" or opera in two acts by Gaetano Donizetti. The Italian libretto was written by Felice Romani originally for Coccia's "Rosmunda" (1829). It is based on the legend of Rosamund Clifford ("The Fair Rosamund").

Performance history

It premiered at the Teatro della Pergola, Florence on February 27, 1834 and was revived only in Livorno in 1845. The opera was revised as "Eleonora di Gujenna" for Naples in 1837. It was largely forgotten until its English rediscovery in 1975 when a concert performance was given at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London with Yvonne Kenny in the title role.
