GAETANO DONIZETTI

Lucrezia Borgia

“Take the most hideous, most repulsive, most complete moral deformity, place it where it will be most apparent, in the heart of a woman […], and mingle with all of this moral deformity a pure sentiment, the purest that woman can experience, maternal feeling”. These are the words used by Victor Hugo to describe the tragedy Lucrezia Borgia, written by him and from which Donizetti based his work in a prologue and two acts, staged for the first time in 1833. Lucrezia, protagonist of this drama, seeks redemption in the purity of love for the child, but the events that she herself sets in motion will give her love the taste of poison, of death.
