STAGE TUBE: First Look at Joyce DiDonato and More in MARIA STUARDA
The Metropolitan Opera presents MARIA STUARDA, now running through January 26, 2013. Approximate running time 2 hrs. 46 min. Mary Stuart (Joyce DiDonato) faces off with Elizabeth I (Elza van den Heever) in this clip from Donizetti's MARIA STUARDA, opening New Year's Eve! Check it out below!
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.
