Vincenzo Bellini’s I puritani offers everything that makes bel canto opera so appealing: virtuosic coloratura, mad scenes, large choral tableaux, dramatic duets, and tenors singing high notes. The all-star cast assembled for this revival is led by Russian soprano Irina Lungu, American tenor Lawrence Brownlee, and Romanian baritone George Petean. Together, they’ll take on the extreme vocal demands that the last work of this Italian composer, who died at an early age, imposes in the three leading roles.

The piece deals with the religious war in 17th-century England between the Republican Puritans and the Catholic royalist Stuarts, and tells of the love story that runs between the two camps. Elvira, the daughter of Puritans, loves the Catholic officer Arturo Talbot. This production by Andreas Homoki does not use the political conflict as a mere decorative background for spectacular bel canto singing, but instead shows it in all its blindness and brutality. Again and again, Elvira experiences sectarian violence as waking nightmares. The tall cylinder’s incessant revolutions at the center of Henrik Ahr's set design separate people like a millstone of fate, crowding them together, isolating them, or revealing glimpses into the protagonists’ inner lives. This is a production that combines virtuoso vocal artistry with haunting theatricality.
