DONIZETTI Gaetano (1797-1848

L.A.S. "Donizetti", 25 [January] 1840, to Xavier BOISSELOT; 1 page and a half in-8.

"The rehearsals that I follow contemporaneously [sic] with the great opera and comic opera do not always allow me to attend those that will begin in the Renaissance", he asks him to replace him "sometimes at the rehearsals of The Angel of Nisida. I hope that you will come to my aid, and that you will not find my request too intrusive, which is based on the esteem and special trust I have in you and your character... [La Fille du régiment was premiered at the Opéra-Comique on February 11, 1840, Les Martyrs à l'Opéra on April 10; L'Ange de Nisida will not be performed, and the music was reused in La Favorite, premiered at the Opéra on December 2, 1840].
