Elisabetta, Regina d’Inghilterra

By Gioachino Rossini

Libretto by Giovanni Schmidt

Fully staged, Sung in Italian with English supertitles

 

Queen Elizabeth I is dismayed to learn her revered Leicester has secretly married Matilde, daughter of Mary, Queen of Scots. In court, the Duke of Norfolk is poised to take advantage of this political opportunity. A rare offering from one of opera’s most beloved composers, this is the first of the nine Rossini Neapolitan operas. The drama of the Elizabethan court meets Rossini’s luminous and virtuosic vocal writing in this neglected masterpiece.

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