The tumultuous final days of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I find powerful expression in Donizetti’s Tudor drama.
Queen Elizabeth I, the central character in Roberto Devereux, has always attracted the foremost divas of their day. That tradition now continues with Sondra Radvanovsky, the world’s leading interpreter of the great 19th-century Italian prima donna roles. Donizetti’s show-stopping melodies and sumptuous period costumes bring the intrigue of the Elizabethan court to life within a Shakespearean-inspired Globe Theatre setting.
Performance time is approximately three hours including two intermissions. Sung in Italian with English SURTITLES™.
