Gaetano Donizetti

Gaetano Donizetti (1797-1848)


Born into a poor family in Bergamo in 1797, Donizetti received his formative training from the German composer Johann Simon Mayr, and (following an early stint in Bologna) established himself at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples where the majority of his operas were premiered. Much of his later career was spent in Paris, where the relatively relaxed censorship regulations allowed him greater artistic freedom, and several of his operas exist in both French and Italian versions.
