End of October December I saw it live, fantastice a must see for all opera fans and a "do not miss" for all fans of classical music!!

When 2 royal rivals clash as dramatic sopranos, the consequences are fatal. Gaetano Donizetti made the confrontation between Maria Stuart and Elizabeth I the centerpiece of his opera (premiere Protected content opponents hurled accusations and insults in their faces. In Donizetti's opera, the dispute between the two soprano divas is sparked not only by their respective claims to the English royal throne, but also by a mutual lover, the Count of Leicester. When he asks for mercy for the Scottish queen, Elizabeth I believes the man she loves has betrayed herself and orders Maria Stuart's execution.

Director David Alden, presented himself with his production at the Zurich Opera House for the 1st time, encountered Donizetti's opera, geared towards spectacular singing roles, with a scenic aplomb, large-format pictures and sumptuous furnishings. Maria Stuart star soprano Diana Damrau can be seen again in the title role. The Georgian Salome Jicia successful in the Italian subject, faces her as Elisabeth I.

Looking forward seeing you again soon live and healthy!
