Met Opera Live in HD: Roberto Devereux, by Donizetti

Saturday, April 23, 2016 - 1:00pm
Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center

Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky takes on the extraordinary challenge of singing all three of Donizetti’s Tudor queens in the course of a single season, a rare feat made famous by Beverly Sills—and not attempted on a New York stage since. In this climactic opera of the trilogy, she plays Queen Elizabeth I, forced to sign the death warrant of the nobleman she loves, Roberto Devereux. As with the earlier Anna Bolena and Maria Stuarda, the production is by Sir David McVicar. The opera is screened live in high definition from New York’s Metropolitan Opera
