Gaetano Donizetti's La Favorite at la Fenice Theatre

La Fenice Theatre, located only a few minutes walking from the Hotel Saturnia & International, has planned 5 not-to-be-missed appointments with the French opera La Favorite, one of the best of the italian composer Gaetano Donizetti. On May, 6th, 10th, 15th, 18th and 21st, an extraordinary cast will represent the grand–opera in original language in order to excite the public with their indisputable singing and artistic abilities,  accompanied by the Theatre’s chorus and orchestra.

Divided into 4 acts, the opera is based on timeless issues (Religion, amorous and court intrigues, betrayals and secret identities): the history begins at the Santiago de Compostela convent where Fernand, a young monk, reveals to father Balthazar that he is falling in love with a woman, of which he doesn’t know the name and the social class. After the confession, the man leaves the convent to search for his lover; with the help of Inés, Fernand meets the unknown lady who declares him her feelings. The magical moment is broken by the Leonoire’s suitor, king Alphonse XI. Fernand decides to undertake the military career in order to return and fight in the name of his love.

To realize this opera, Donizetti has been able to merge perfectly the refined French taste with his Italian way to compose. The result is a masterpiece which has become famous across Europe, above all in Paris, since 1840.
