Vincenzo Bellini I Puritani

The distinguished British designer (1926-2010), whose Puritani costumes were seen at Lyric in the company’s previous revival of Bellini’s opera (1991/92 season), created costumes for some of the stage’s most celebrated luminaries. Vincenzo Salvatore Carmelo Francesco Bellini (Italian: vinˈtʃɛntso salvaˈtoːre karˈmɛːlo franˈtʃesko belˈliːni ; 3 November 1801 – 23 September 1835) was an Italian opera composer, who was known for his long-flowing melodic lines for which he was named 'the Swan of Catania'. Verified Purchase. Among Beverly Sills' considerable discography, her 1973 recording of Bellini's 'I puritani,' for Westminster, is perhaps the most underestimated. Conducted by the late Julius Rudel, the set also featured Nicolai Gedda (as Lord Arturo Talbo), Louis Quilico (as Sir Riccardo Forth), and Paul Plishka (as Sir Giorgio).

Few sopranos have tackled the extraordinarily difficult role of Elvira in Bellini’s last opera at the Met. In this remarkable performance, the great Edita Gruberova sails through the vocal challenges, pulling off her trademark coloratura stunts and caressing Bellini’s long, languid phrases with equal ease. She creates a poignant, very human portrait of a young woman who goes insane when she loses the man she loves, only to be restored when he returns. Chris Merritt is Arturo, the object of her affection.
