ROBERTO DEVEREUX

"Radvanovsky gives an incandescent performance, inhabiting the role of Elizabeth as though receiving mystical assistance from across the centuries." (NY Classical Review)

For the final opera in Donizetti’s “Tudor trilogy”, the Met has assembled an ideal cast with an insightful conductor, Maurizio Benini: Bel canto soprano Sondra Radvanovsky as Elizabeth I. “expresses tortured feelings of love with the most delicate phrasing and jealous rage with a fire that can make one tremble” (Huffington Post). Elīna Garanča brings “her sumptuous voice and charisma” (New York Times) to the role of the retiring, love-struck Sara opposite Matthew Polenzani as the title character. Sir David McVicar, who directed the Met premieres of Anna Bolena and Maria Stuarda, also stages the final instalment in the series.
