Libretto by Felice Romani
Amina, a simple village girl, is believed to be unfaithful to her lover, but she is vindicated when it is
discovered that her nighttime wanderings are carried out in her sleep. Vincenzo Bellini's operas are among the finest of the bel
canto style. Bel canto, or "beautiful singing," is noted for its challenging coloratura ornamentation and long, exposed musical
lines. La sonnambula features some of the most beautiful and original music in all of opera and a
passionate and deservedly famous conclusion.
One of the most iconic Aminas of her time, Renata Scotto, directs former FGO Young Artist Rachele Gilmore in her
first return to South Florida since her "exceptional" (according to Corriere della Serra) La Scala debut as Olympia in Les contes d'Hoffmann.
