Set during the Renaissance in Venice and Ferrara, Victor Hugo’s play is full of sensuality and decadence – jealousy, espionage, betrayal and poison. Even more than Lucia di Lammermoor, Lucrezia Borgia is Donizetti’s great bel canto masterpiece. Vocal fireworks illumine this grand, dark-hued melodrama.
