Francesca da Rimini | Francesca

On the 11th December 2021 at Ópera de Tenerife.

Mercadantes' masterpiece "Francesca da Rimini" makes its première at Ópera de Tenerife bringing vocal fireworks from its soloists. Based on the story of the Italian noblewoman who inspired Dante's Divine Comedy, this is a two-act opera with a libretto by Felice Romani. Although it was composed in 1830, its world première had to wait almost two centuries.
