The Met: Live in HD continues on Saturday, January 19 at 1pm with Donizetti's Maria Stuarda at the Warner Theatre in Torrington.

Joyce DiDonato stars as Mary, Queen of Scots in the first-ever Met production of Donizetti's intensely dramatic historical opera Maria Stuarda. South African soprano Elza van den Heever makes her Met debut as Mary's rival, the formidable Queen Elizabeth I, and Matthew Polenzani sings Leicester, the nobleman caught between the two dueling monarchs. Maurizio Benini conducts a cast that also includes Matthew Rose as Talbot, Mary's jailer, and Joshua Hopkins as Elizabeth's advisor Cecil. The production is by David McVicar, who also staged last season's production of Donizetti's Tudor drama Anna Bolena. Soprano Deborah Voigt hosts the transmission and conducts backstage interviews with the stars.

A pre-broadcast lecture with Jeffrey Engel begins at 11am for any interested ticket holders.

Tickets are $25, $23 for seniors and students and $15 for children 13 & under. To purchase tickets you can call the Warner box office at 860-489-7180 or go online to www.warnertheatre.org/metopera.htm.
