I went for Joyce DiDonato whom I was blown away by in her role as Sycorax in The Enchanted Island...much to my delight, Matthew Polenzani whom I saw perform with Ana Netrebko in L'Elisir d'Amore also performs. He is fantastic and very easy on the eyes I must say! Back to Joyce whom in my opinion, is brilliant...she does not disappoint as Mary, Queen of Scots nor does the South African, Elza van den Heever who makes her Met debut as Elizabeth I. The sets and costume designs are absolutely gorgeous!

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.

This is one of the best productions the Met has done in years. The cast is outstanding vocally and dramatically. DiDonato is one of the most fantastic artists of any age.

this opera Maria Stuarda is wonderful. Joyce Di Donato was artistically up to the role. Her acting and singing was sublime. The rest of the cast were great. Must see opera and performance.
