Misc. Comments

Posthumously discovered, premiered and published.

Donizetti: A Research and Information Guide confirms a date of 1860 and plate 5738 but for the vocal score, oddly.

The full score (sometimes?) gives separate staves for Peppa (Peppe) depending on whether a tenor or baritone is singing, eg in the Trio (Nº 7), rather than leaving these for the parts.
