This was an all around sensational performance! There was not a weak voice in the bunch. The two ladies were glorious! And, Matthew Polenzani was wonderful. Hopefully, this will not be so rare in the future as Donizetti has too few operas as is.

This was a fantastic production. Everything about the work was stunning, singing, acting, sets, etc.. The work was mesmerizing and there was never a let up in the intensity of the production. Joyce DeDonato was incredible as Maria Stuarda. What an incredible voice both as a coloratura and as a bel canto singer. The debut of the soprano playing Elizabeth was also great.

It was wonderful and the singing was sublime.

The experience was fabulous. The production was outstanding. I am not a fan of the Donizetti style to portray the dark story of these two queens. I enjoyed the live feed and backstage view. It was worth every penny.
