About the opera Marin Faliero

Marino Faliero (or Marin Faliero) is a tragedia lirica, or tragic opera, in three acts by Gaetano Donizetti. Giovanni Emanuele Bidéra wrote the Italian libretto, with revisions by Agostino Ruffini, after Casimir Delavigne's play. It is inspired by Lord Byron's drama Marino Faliero (1820) and based on the life of Marino Faliero (c.1285-1355), the Venetian Doge.
Rossini had commissioned both Donizetti and Vincenzo Bellini to write operas for the Théâtre-Italien in Paris. Bellini's contribution was the hugely successful I puritani. Donizetti's opera, which premiered on March 12, 1835 (a few months after I puritani) was not nearly as much of a success. Still Marino Faliero was presented in London that same year and at the Teatro Alfieri in Florence in 1836. It also marked Donizetti's first opera to have its premiere in Paris.
