The international festival Donizetti Opera is promoted by the Fondazione Teatro Donizetti with the aim of safeguarding and broadcasting the vast cultural legacy bequeathed to Bergamo by its most illustrious citizen, the composer Gaetano Donizetti.
Donizetti Opera, with artistic direction by Francesco Micheli, is the manifestation of in-depth musicological research and attracts some of the world’s top performers to appear in its productions. As well as new performances of Donizetti’s lesser-known works, the festival features more famous operas edited and revised by the Foundation’s scientific division, led by musicologist Paolo Fabbri. Musical direction is by Riccardo Frizza.
Special thanks to the Donizetti Ambassadors who – with Art Bonus – support the work of the Fondazione Teatro Donizetti.
