Abstract. The author considers the problem of the comprehension of the works of the Italian composers of the XIX th century Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, who opened a new age of bel canto. The very development of the style is based on the interaction of the composers creativity and vocal performance practice. Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti, in spite of a number of similar stylistic features, have their specific ones: the first is a master of ornamental presentation, the second of cantilena one, the third of declamatory one. Due to the surge of interest in bel canto in the XXI st century it is necessary to research the correlation of Rossini, Bellini, Donizettis vocal notation and the theoretical and performance traditions of the first half of the XIX th century. The modern staging of the operas of the aforementioned composers requires the singers most accurate reading of their parts. In this regard, the rethinking of the authors creativity style and the revelation of the true performers features become topical.
