Met Opera ENCORE: Donizetti's ROBERTO DEVEREUX - Met Premiere

Encore Broadcast in HD!

Sondra Radvanovsky finishes her extraordinary challenge of singing Donizetti’s three Tudor queens in one season. Here she plays Queen Elizabeth I, forced to sign the death warrant of the man she loves, Roberto Devereux, sung by Matthew Polenzani. Elna Garanˇca and Mariusz Kwiecien complete the principal quartet, and Maurizio Benini conducts. As with Anna Bolena and Maria Stuarda, the production is by Sir David McVicar.

England, 1599. Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex and favorite of Queen Elizabeth I, is sent to Ireland to defeat the rebellious Irish chieftains. After an unsuccessful campaign he returns to England, where his actions are deemed a desertion of duty. The opera is inspired by the events of the following two years, which are condensed into a few days.

Approximate running time: 3 hours 30 min.
