La Sonnambula is a melodrama in two acts, whose libretto was written by Felice Romani. It was first performed on March 1831 at Teatro Carcano in Milan.
This opera mixes tender and melancholic feelings with tragic and moving passion, set in a spotless natural environment.
This performance was staged at the Teatro Lirico of Cagliari in 2007, directed by Hugo de Ana. The Argentinian director creates evocative tableaux vivants, with clear references to 17th century Romantic painting, paying a tribute to Luchino Visconti who produced the memorabile performance of Sonnambula in 1955 at La Scala featuring a stunning Maria Callas.
Cast: Simone Alaimo, Eglise Gutierrez, Antonino Siragusa. Conductor: Maurizio Benini. Director: Hugo De Ana.
