Product Description

’Ever since the Royal Opera opened its 2005-6 season with two thrilling concert performances of Dom Sebastien, the promised recording has been impatiently awaited. Now that it’s here, it stands out as one of Opera Rara’s most indispensable enterprises - and that is saying something’. Review by John Allison, Opera Magazine, May 2007.

Few figures in European history fire the imagination more than Don Sebastian of Portugal. Romantic literature spun extravagant tales around him, and in 1843 he became the subject of Donizetti’s last-composed opera, a somber five-act masterpiece given at the Paris Opéra. The sheer logistics of staging such a work have militated against its wide performance, but we are convinced that this new recording will trigger a new recognition of its value.

Sung in French, the set includes at 220 page booklet with detailed article on the opera by Jeremy Commons and English libretto translation.
