About

A tragic tale of Christian martyrdom, Les Martyrs began its life as Poliuto, Donizetti’s Italian opera which – due to its religious content – was banned before its Naples premiere. Greatly angered by the Italian censors’ decision, Donizetti moved to Paris in the hope of conquering the Opéra de Paris and securing his status as a composer of international repute.

Les Martyrs brings together Opera Rara and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment for their fourth collaboration. Sir Mark Elder conducts an outstanding cast featuring Michael Spyres and Joyce El-Khoury in the central roles. They are joined by David Kempster, Wynne Evans, Brindley Sherratt and Clive Bayley.
