Il Burgomastro di Saardam is a two act opera buffa. It premiered at the Teatro nel Fondo in Naples on August 9, 1827. The Neapolitans loved it, for Donizetti was very popular in that city, but when it was staged at the Teatro La Scala in Milan, it completely failed. Its Milan failure was a source of great satisfaction to the competitive Bellini, whose Il Pirata was received with great critical and popular acclaim in Milan at about the same time. The original cast included the celebrated prima donna Carolina Ungher, for whom the lead role was composed. She completely shone at the premiere, and she was surrounded by a strong cast as well, which included the buffo bass Carlo Casaccia. The score contains many Rossinisms and Donizetti's characteristically genial approach to opera buffa writing. The libretto, by Domenico Gilardoni, was based on Le bourgmestre de Sardam, ou Les deux Pierre, a French play from 1818. Albert Lortzing set the same story in his opera Zar und Zimmerman in 1837. The story is a gentle one about the good natured generosity of a Russian ruler. ---Rita Laurance, allmusic.com
