Featuring Edita Gruberova as prima donna assoluta. A new standard recording! A scandalous tale of murder, torture, incest, homosexuality, drunkenness and orgies, Donizetti's opera is one of the great masterpieces of Italian bel canto repertoire. Felice Romani wrote the Italian libretto after the play by Victor Hugo, after the legend of Lucrezia Borgia. "Lucrezia Borgia" was first performed on December 26, 1833 at La Scala, Milan with Lelande and Pedrazzi. Enjoy the all-time favorites: Lucrezia's aria "Com'e bello", Orsino's "Brindisi Il segreto per esser felice", the tenor's "Di pescator ignobile", and the bass aria "Vieni, la mia vendetta!". Including the 54 mins. documentary "The Art of Bel Canto - Edita Gruberova" - an empathic portrait of the Queen of coloratura. "Lucrezia Borgia" Recorded live at the Nationaltheater, Munich, July 2007 "...a triumph of musical theatre." Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
