Material type: materialTypeLabelArticlePublisher: 2016Description: 107-118.Subject(s): 6.03 | Italian librettos, Donizetti, English history eng In: English studies from archives to prospects. Volume 1. Literature and cultural studies str. 107-118Grgas, Stipe ; Klepač, Tihana ; Domines Veliki, MartinaSummary: 19th century Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti, composed several operas dealing with English 16th century queens, and the best among these are the three known today as the Tudor trilogy: Anna Bolena (1830), Maria Stuarda (1834) and Roberto Devereux (1837). The paper aims to present the work of Donizetti’s librettists, Felice Romani, Giuseppe Bardari and Salvadore Cammarano, in transforming historical facts and interpreting individual destinies of important English queens. Their solutions are mainly the result of the need to comply with Italian romantic opera poetics and of a very pronounced Anglophilia present in Italian culture since the mid 18th century. Some of the strategies applied by the librettists include simplifying the context and relying strongly on passions rather then logic or political interests in the shaping of characters, as well as serious diverging from historical facts.
