Metropolitan Opera 2019-20 Season: Maria Stuarda


Set in 16th Century Britain, Donizetti’s historical drama follows Mary, Queen of Scots and her bitter rivalry with the cousin responsible for imprisoning her, Queen Elizabeth I, and thrills with intense stand-offs and impressive vocal displays.

Soprano Diana Damrau and mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton square off as two of history’s most
formidable monarchs, with Maurizio Benini conducting.
