Donizetti’s gripping opera, Parisina, comes from a particularly fruitful period in the composer’s life. The opera made its 1833 debut in Florence, the year Lucrezia Borgia opened at La Scala and Torquato Tasso premiered in Rome, with a libretto by leading exponent of his craft at that time, Felice Romani.
