Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, one of the world’s most exciting singers, takes on the virtuosic bel canto role of the doomed Mary, Queen of Scots. Director David McVicar turns to the second opera of Donizetti’s Tudor trilogy, which explores regal characters at fateful moments of their lives. Elza van den Heever sings Elizabeth I, and Maurizio Benini conducts.
Anyone who supports Guild Hall’s screenings of The Met: Live in HD with a gift in addition to their GH ticket purchase is invited to attend Guild Hall’s Operatif series of talks by accomplished composer and speaker Victoria Bond. The 30 minute talk begins one hour before each opera screening.
