Bianca e Fernando

The plot

Set in the 15th century, the opera deals with the eternal theme of power struggle: Fernando comes home to Agrigento, Sicily, from exile with the mission to avenge his father and save his sister (Bianca) from the usurper Filippo. He devises a bold plan to enlist under the enemy’s army, gain his confidence and then wait for the right moment for revenge… Fight for power, attempted murders, royal entrances, big choirs, suspense moments and poetic art. These are the main ingredients of this truly romantic opera that paved Bellini the way to fame.
