ELISABETTA, REGINA D’INGHILTERRA
By Gioachino Rossini
Libretto by Giovanni Schmidt
This performance was cancelled due to COVID-19.
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.
