favorite Donizetti opera?

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.

    I’m not a Donizetti expert and haven’t heard/seen many of the operas on the list, but Lucia is definitely something very special- the cream of bel canto, along with Norma!

    Don’t forget “Emilia di Liverpool”

    I don’t really know! But I think I would like Anna Bolena!
