La Sonnambula (The Sleepwalker)is a much-studied and frequently performed two-act opera by the Italian composer Vincenzo Bellini (1801–35).

A master of the bel canto style, Bellini ranks among his era's most popular composers. La Sonnambula is particularly admired for the simplicity and economy of its orchestration and the inspired lyricism of the vocal writings.

This story of two lovers unfolds in an idyllic village setting and has been a favorite with audiences and musicians since its first performance in 1831. The role of Amina has been performed by several famed mezzo-sopranos, from Jenny Lind to Maria Callas and Cecilia Bartoli.

A reprint of the G. Ricordi edition, Milan n.d, this inexpensive score offers a sturdy, affordable resource for conductors, scholars, musicians and music lovers.
