Gaetano Donizetti

Domenico Gaetano Maria Donizetti (29 November 17978 April 1848) was a famous Italian opera composer. His most famous work is Lucia di Lammermoor (1835)

He was born in Bergamo into a very poor family with no tradition of music, but in 1806 he was one of the first pupils to be enrolled in a charity school at Bergamo founded by Simon Mayr.

Donizetti is best known for his operatic works, but he also wrote music in a number of other forms, including some church music, a number of string quartets, and some orchestral works.
