Elizabeth I
Rossini 
Sat 2 Mar, 2019

The first fully staged professional production Rossini’s opera Elizabeth I (Elisabetta) to tour the UK.

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

Rossini’s opera contrasts the private and public spheres of her life, sparkling with vocal fireworks which culminate in a virtuosic showdown between the virgin queen, her councillor, 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

Director  James Conway (ETO General Director)

Idomeneo
Mozart
Fri 8 Mar, 2019

Returning from the Trojan War and caught in the midst of a storm, King Idomeneo promises the raging seas that he will sacrifice the first person he meets, in return for his safe passage. Cruelly, the first person he encounters is his only son, Idamante.

The rivalry between the princesses Ilia and Elettra for the heart of Idamante coupled with a king’s ill-fated promise provide a rich, emotional drama and unforgettable music.

Mozart’s Idomeneo remains one the greatest of his ‘opera seria’ (serious operas). This is an opera that explores royalty, high ideals and deep emotions.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles
