Donizetti's Maria de Rudenz

Concert performance organised by Det Danske Belcanto Selskab (the Danish Bel Canto Society) at the Gentofte Rådhus, Denmark, June 10, 2005

This performance was the Det Danske Belcanto Selskab's most ambitious effort to date.  Some cuts were made to take account of the small orchestra and chorus.  Ulrik Cold, Børsen, June 14, 2005 was generally complimentary about the performance, although finding it hampered by the unsympathetic acoustic. The photographs by Marco Germinario are provided courtesy of the Det Danske Belcanto Selskab.
