Donizetti Pia De Tolomei Vs




Opera in two acts. Premiered in Venice, Feb 18 1837.


Setting: Rome. C13.


Ghino's amorous overtures are rebuffed by Pia, the wife of his cousin Nello. Angered, Ghino tells Nello that Pia is to meet her brother, Rodrigo, with whom she is having an adulterous and incestuous affair. The siblings are discovered meeting and despite protesting their innocence, Pia is told that she will be executed should Nello not survive the forthcoming battle against the Guelphs who are led by, you guessed it, Rodrigo. Ghino is mortally wounded during the battle and admits his treachery, but too late!  Nello rushes to his wife only to find that she has taken poison. She snuffs it and they all live miserably ever after. Not a dry seat in the house!
