  • Description:

    In January 1834, Bellini signed a contract to write a new opera for the Thtre Italien. The subject was proposed by Count Carlo Pepoli, who had met Bellini ar the salon of Princess Cristina di Belgioiosio and took ont the task of drawing up the libretto for I Puritani.The source of the opra is Ttes Rondes et Cavaliers, a historical play "ml de chant" by Jacques-Arsne Ancelot and Joseph-Xavier-Boniface Saintine that tells a tale of love and madness against the legendary background of Cromwell's revolution.Bellini, who closely followed the French text in the early stages of work, percived in this subject "combinations that suspend the soul and invite it to sigh with the innocent that suffer, without any bad character that could could cause such adversities... fate is their creator and hence the emotion is stronger, because no huma, relief canbe found to make the misfortune cease".Making a decisive contribution to huge success of the first performance on 24 january 1835 was the presence of a group of singers who duly entered the realm of legend as the "Quartet of I Puritani" : in other words, Grisi, Rubini, Lablache and Tamburini.
