Roger Parker presents a portrait of Donizetti's final years, with Norman Rodway as the composer and with music played and sung by Susan Bullock.
Gaetano Donizetti - composer of Lucia di Lammermoor and some 65 other operas - lapsed into insanity in 1845 and died three years later. The creator of some of the most magnificent mad scenes in all opera experienced insanity as a series of humiliating episodes, including imprisonment at an asylum near Paris. Here, and later back in Italy, the pathetic invalid lost touch with reality, while wellintentioned visitors tried to comfort and stimulate him with his own music.
