Linda di Chamounix is a pretty country girl who is in love with Carlo, who she believes is a penniless artist. Her honour is threatened by the local squire and she escapes to Paris in search of fortune. This is a tale of courage and madness, in which we discover and experience the strength and suffering of a woman torn apart by estrangement from family and love. Donizetti reaped full and long-lasting success with Linda di Chamounix, and it became one of his most modern, appreciated and long-lived works. Jessica Pratt leads an all-star cast in this acclaimed production from the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.

‘…When Linda di Chamounix appeared, it was a resounding success. Thus, the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino’s production is fully commendable. Cesare Lievi's staging was simple but effective: a realistic setting (scenes and costumes by Luigi Perego), and very essential intercourses between the characters. … Michele Gamba conducted the orchestra with a special care for the singers' needs, finely depicting the different moods on stage, and unfolding the story with fluidity and clean sound. The chorus was well prepared by Lorenzo Fratini…’ – Bachtrack.com

‘…Successful operation for Cesare Lievi from Brescia who signs the direction of Gaetano Donizetti's masterpiece recorded at the Teatro del Maggio Fiorentino in Florence. The show, in the elegance and cleanliness of the narrative progress, finds its strength in the acting of the protagonists, particularly effective thanks to the commendable work of Lievi. The beautiful scenes and costumes by Luigi Perego and the evocative lights of Luigi Saccomandi frame the story in a fairytale nineteenth century. On stage, perhaps the best possible cast for a demanding job, both from a theatrical and musical point of view. …. The direction of the young Michele Gamba is vibrant in dosing theater and lyricism and the choir is excellent...’ – Corriere della Sera
