Notes

  1. ^ The information in the table is taken from Smart and Budden 2001, unless otherwise noted.
  2. ^ Operas are initially listed by date of completion of composition, which usually correlates closely with the date of the premiere. When the date of completion is significantly earlier than the date of the premiere (or there was no premiere), the date of composition is given. However, the column rows sort by the date of the premiere (or by the date of composition, if there is no premiere). To restore the initial state use the browser refresh button.
  3. ^ Olimpiade: Donizetti composed the one duet from Metastasio's famous libretto, probably during his student days for his friends. A copyist full score is located in the Museo Donizettiano, Bergamo (Ashbrook 1982, pp. 580–581).
  4. ^ L'ira di Achille: Donizetti set the first act and a duet from Act 2 scene v. The libretto, probably by Felice Romani, had previously been set by Giuseppe Nicolini (Milan, 1814). A copyist full score of a bass aria with chorus is listed in the catalog of the Museo Donizettiano, Bergamo (Ashbrook 1982, p. 580).
  5. ^ I piccioli virtuosi ambulanti was the title of one of the annual end-of-term pasticcios that were organized by the Bergamo music school's director, the composer Simon Mayr. Donizetti contributed an introduzione and a scene with aria and chorus, which he also used in Le nozze in villa (Ashbrook 1982, p. 581).
