Il diluvio universale tells the biblical story of Noah (Noè in Italian). But it is given still further human and dramatic interest, since it also presents the story – and the tragedy – of Sela, the favourite concubine and wife of Cadmo, satrap of the Babylonian city of Sennáár.

Donizetti’s fascination with the story of Gabriella di Vergy began in 1826. The grisly appeal of the story of Gabriella lies in its powerful final scene in which Gabriella’s husband, Fayel, delivers to her a casket containing the still-warm heart of her lover, Raoul.
