THIS IS A DELAYED LIVE BROADCAST EVENT IN HD, FROM THE METROPOLITAN OPERA IN NEW YORK
by Gaetano Donizetti
Opera in 2 Acts Sung in Italian (with subtitles)
The second opera in Donizetti’s famous trilogy about Tudor history features the love, intrigue and betrayal surrounding Queen Elizabeth I’s relationship with her hated half-sister Mary, Queen of Scots, finishing as she ascends the scaffold at Fotheringhay. Director David McVicar says: “Maria Stuarda is a different kind of opera than last season’s Anna Bolena. Rather than reflecting history, we've gone for a freer visual style reflecting the sweeping romantic nature of the story and of Donizetti’s music.”
One of the world’s most exciting singers, mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, takes on the virtuosic bel canto role of the doomed but defiant Mary, with South African soprano Elza van den Heever - in her Met debut - as her formidable rival and Francesco Meli as the Earl of Leicester. Maurizio Benini conducts, and design is by mid-Wales-based painter and designer John Macfarlane.
Est. running time: 2 hrs. 45 min (inc. one interval)
