Running time: 2 hours 51 minutes inc interval

ETO - Rossini Elizabeth I

English Touring Opera present a season of Kings and Queens in the battle for love, loyalty and power with each opera featuring a large chorus and live orchestra.

ROSSINI: Elizabeth I
The first fully staged professional production Rossini's opera Elixabetta to tour the UK.

Elisabetta shows the woman behind Elizabeth I. The Queen had the reputation of a monarch who ruled with her head, and silenced her heart - but writers and composers remained fascinated with her private life, and in particular with the rivalry with her cousin Mary Queen of Scots.

Rossini's opera contrasts the private and public spheres of her life, sparking with vocal fireworks which culminate in a virtuosic showdown between the virgin queen, her councilor, her lover and his wife. 

The production features Mary Plazas in the title role and is directed by ETO's General Director James Conway. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

We're sorry but there are no upcoming dates for this event.
