New Year's Eve Gala—Maria Stuarda
Approximate running time 2 hrs. 46 min.
Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, one of the world's most exciting singers, takes on the virtuosic bel canto role of the doomed Mary, Queen of Scots, in this Met premiere production. Having scored a major success with his staging of Anna Bolena, director David McVicar now turns to the second opera of Donizetti's Tudor trilogy, which explores regal characters at fateful moments of their lives. Elza van den Heever sings Elizabeth I, Matthew Polenzani is Leicester, and Maurizio Benini conducts.
Production a gift of The Sybil B. Harrington Endowment Fund
