Vincenzo Bellini was among the most important Italian opera composers of the early 19th century, and the quintessential representative of its bel canto tradition. Despite his enduring renown, his official operatic debut Bianca e Gernando was known only in its revised version of Bianca e Fernando until this rediscovery and revival at Bad Wildbad in July 2016. Set in the ducal palace of Agrigento and with its tale of secretive plots and triumph over tyranny, this original version of the opera presents both unknown music and significant differences from the revised version, giving its dramatic shape a distinctive new character.

The opening night of Vincenzo Bellini’s first professional opera, Bianca e Fernando (NOT Gernando), set to take place at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples as part of a gala evening in January 1826, was cancelled at the last minute for reasons that remain unclear, even though it appears that at the time, use of the name Fernando in the title was forbidden because Ferdinando was the name of the Bourbon heir to the throne, and no form of it could be used on a royal stage. But in May of the same year, under the title Bianca e Gernando, the piece was finally premiered, with great success. But after the triumph of Il pirata in Milan in 1827, Bellini was commissioned by Genoa in 1828 to offer a new work – too late for the composer to write anything new: he resorted to the age-old trick of recycling old material, in this case his own Bianca, even though he was confronted with the difficult task of adapting several episodes to suit the voices of the new performers for the new production. He reverted to the former title Bianca et Fernando and it is that heavily revised score which has been produced, on and off, up to the 1980s, even though quite rarely. But in 2016, the famous festival Rossini in Wildbad decided to revert to the first version – which is radically different from the revised score, one should add –, a world premiere since 1826, which was duly recorded (live, of course) and is now available to aficionados in that excellent interpretation, with a brilliant cast and a highly polished orchestra. A brand new Bellini, 190 years after it was written!
