The Donizetti Opera Festival is an international music festival held in November of each year in Bergamo, the birthplace of the composer Gaetano Donizetti. Its aim, in addition to studying the musical heritage of the composer, is to revive and perform his works in a unique setting that allows collaboration of scholars, artists, and Donizetti devotees.
Among our best composers, the one who needs more than others a festival is also the most humanly sympathetic and, at the same time, artistically undervalued: Gaetano Donizetti.
So should a festival be organized, with rare titles, original and not recycled essays on the theatre programmes, with young and famous singers together. For Donizetti, in Bergamo, you are spoilt for choice.
