Event: Swiss premiere at the Opéra de Lausanne

The Paolo Fabbri edition chosen by the Opéra de Lausanne for Anna Bolena, refers to the original state of Donizetti’s score, free of the heavy orchestration accumulated over the years by unfaithful editions. We will hear all of Donizetti’s music, with vocal writing for the role of Percy created for tenor Rubini, thanks to the exceptional talent of Edgardo Rocha. The edition presented in Lausanne, expurgated of all the downward transpositions made after the first performances, aims to respect the style of this opera originally written in 1830.
