Vincenzo Bellini

Vincenzo Bellini is one of the most famous composers of the bel canto era.

Born on Nov. 3, 1801, the composer would become well-known for his expansive melodies that would become the inspiration for many Italian composers thereafter.

His first opera was “Adelson e Salvini,” which had its premiere in February of 1825 at the Teatro del Conservatorio di San Sebastiano. He would go on to compose a total of 11 operas over the course of 10 years, with his later works managing a sturdy foothold in the standard repertoire. His last work was “I Puritani,” which premiered in January of 1835 in Paris.

Unfortunately, the composer lived a short life, dying in 1835.
