The OAE are joined by principal artist Sir Mark Elder for Opera Rara’s world premiere studio recording of Donizetti’s Imelda de’ Lambertazzi.
After a brief stage history, Imelda de’ Lambertazzi unfortunately disappeared for well over a century, having fallen foul of the Neapolitan public and various operatic casting politics. In this exciting revival the wonderful young soprano, Nicole Cabell, takes the title role.
This 2CD set includes as an Appendix to the recording the aria finale written specifically for Luigia Boccabadati in 1831.
