Maria Stuarda

Auditorium - Subs - Sunday 10 May 2020, 14:30

MET Delayed Live


Soprano Diana Damrau, following her triumph as Violetta in last season’s new production of Verdi’s La Traviata, returns  as the martyred Mary, Queen of Scots, in Donizetti’s bel canto showcase.


Star mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton is her imperious rival Queen Elizabeth I, and the silken-voiced tenor Stephen Costello is the noble Earl of Leicester. Maurizio Benini conducts Sir David McVicar’s handsome production. For all the beauty of its orchestral writing, Maria Stuarda is a prime example of the mid-19th century bel canto style—the drama is firmly embedded in the vocal parts. A notable curiosity of the score is the wide range of casting possibilities for the two leading ladies: either role can be (and has been) sung by a soprano or a mezzo-soprano. Much depends on the contrast of the voices, especially in the great confrontation scene at the end of Act I. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.

180m approx including intervals.
