Mary Stuart (Maria Stuarda)

by Gaetano Donizetti.

Melbourne Opera proudly presents a new production of Donizetti's dramatic masterpiece, not seen in Melbourne for more than 40 years.

Led by acclaimed Australian conductor and Donizetti specialist Richard Divall, the superb cast features Rosamund Illing as Queen Elizabeth 1 with Elena Xanthoudakis returning from London to make her debut as the doomed Mary Stuart. Henry Choo, Phillip Calcagno, Eddie Muliaumaseali'i and Caroline Vercoe are supported by the Melbourne Opera Chorus and Orchestra.

The new production will be directed by Suzanne Chaundy whose recent production of Der Freischutz was a fantastic success.

Sung in English.
