Il diluvio universale (The great flood) is an azione tragico-sacra, or opera, by Gaetano Donizetti. The Italian libretto was written by Domenico Gilardoni after Lord Byron's Heaven and Earth and Padre Ringhieri's Il diluvio. The opera premiered at the Teatro San Carlo, Naples on February 28, 1830. It failed to become an instant success. It is known that the premiere producion had to be handed in as an Oratorio to the censors of the church, as its date was within the period of fasting and was only allowed due to its biblical story. A production of a version revised by Donizetti was opened on January 17th, 1834 at the Genoa Teatro Carlo Felice. After another staging in 1837 in Paris, the opera paused for an incredible 147 years before being staged once again in Genoa in 1985. The first production in Switzerland was taking place at St. Gallen where since 2006 an opera is being produced open air in front of the Cathedral around the first weekend of July. This production is currently on at the St. Galler Festspiele 2010 until July 9th where Mirco Palazzi, Majella Cullagh and Manuela Custer from the recording mentioned are to be seen on stage.

What a wonderful opera! I'm surprised I haven't heard anyone write about this yet. I've had it on my wish list of operas to get since it came out but only just got it today and I must admit I wish I had bought it sooner. This piece has it all. Everything you expect from Donizetti and more. The entire opera delivers the excitement and splendour that make almost all of Donizetti's operas genuine treats to listen to. The orchestra and preformers all do a great job and bring much to the opera. As per usual with all opera-rara albums there is a thick book with a complete history and libretto and a huge box. As for the opera itself it starts with a wonderful sinfonia and from there a haunting and brilliant Introduzione and from there it just keeps going and keeping with all expectations you may have. And when you get to track 8 "Si, quell' arca nell'ira de'venti" you instantly recognise where Donizetti got his theme for "La fille du regiment". The opera is about the famous flood of the bible and Noah and his family with a small subplot thats not in the bible but necessary to spice the piece up for the italian opera audiences of the day. All in all this is a wonderful opera/oratorio (90% opera 10% oratorio despite Donizetti's intentions) and extremely enjoyable to listen to. For Donizetti fans and opera fans alike. -–Brett Farrell
