Favorite Donizetti Opera?

Posted on the 24 March 2011 by Galegirl

This Saturday I’m going to see Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore at New York City Opera. Last Saturday I listened to Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor on the radio, presented by the Metropolitan Opera. I’ve never done a Donizetti poll, so I thought one was in order.

So, gentle readers and bel canto buffs. Would you like to weigh in on your favorite Donizetti? Write-ins welcome in the comments, of course.
