Following his success in Paris with the French version of Lucia di Lammermoor, Donizetti received a new commission from the Opéra, on that occasion based on a libretto by Alphonse Royer, Gustave Vaëz and Eugène Scribe. The result was La favorite, a romantic opera which made a successful debut. The story is set in the 14th century and features a love triangle between King Alphonse XI of Castile, his mistress Leonor and young Fernand.

Approx running time 3 hours 10 mins.

Tickets on sale from June 2017.
