About the opera Béatrice di Tenda

Beatrice di Tenda is a tragic opera in two acts by Vincenzo Bellini, from a libretto by Felice Romani, after the play of the same name by Carlo Tedaldi-Fores. The opera is Bellini's penultimate opera, coming after Norma (1831) and before I puritani (1835).
The composer chose the subject in discussions with Giuditta Pasta after they had seen the ballet together in Milan, against the better judgement of Romani and despite similarities with Donizetti's Anna Bolena. Work was problematic, and the finale was not finished in time for the premiere so Beatrice's final aria was borrowed from Bianca e Fernando; Bellini's sketches of a former duet between Beatrice and Agnese were realized by Vittorio Gui for a series of revivals from the late 1960s. Romani's distaste for the subject, and his exasperation with Bellini, led him to insert an apology into the printed libretto; this led to a bitter row with the composer and a breakdown of their difficult, if glorious, working relationship.
