About

In Vincenzo Bellini’s last opera, Elvira’s love for Arturo overcomes the power-games in Puritan England, staged with darkly dramatic flair by Francisco Negrin as a world of blind dogma.

Mariola Cantarero
is compelling as the heroine on the verge of insanity in one of the greatest mad scenes in the history of opera. One of the leading lyric tenors today, John Osborn, sings Arturo with fearless commitment and some spectacular top notes.

In the pit is the bel canto specialist Giuliano Carella.

Director: Francisco Negrin

Recorded live at the Netherlands Opera, October 2009.

"It is rare indeed to find a performance of a Bellini opera these days, and with its vertiginous lead roles Puritani is rarer than most. But it is such a treat!" - Seen and Heard International

"Scott Hendricks’ baritone is honeyed and mellifluous. His aria and cabaletta in the opening scene are really beautiful, and he rises to the challenge of his duet with Arturo with thrilling skill." - Seen and Heard International
