Maria, Regina d’Inghilterra

By Giovanni Pacini

Libretto by Leopoldo Tarantini

Fully staged, Sung in Italian with English supertitles

 

Queen Mary I is infatuated with the Scottish adventurer Fenimoore, who is in love with Clotilde, who in turn loves Ernesto. Romance and political intrigue are treacherous bedfellows in this opera based on Victor Hugo’s play about Mary Tudor. A remarkable and largely forgotten opera, its expressive vocal characterization paints an unforgettable portrait of a Queen and the repercussions of her indulgence in an unwise love.

“This is proof that…opera can certainly flourish in Boston.”
