About This Show

Elizabeth I had a reputation as a monarch who ruled with her head, and silenced her heart – but writers and composers have remained fascinated with her private life, in particular the rivalry with 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

This is the first fullystaged professional production of Rossini’s opera to tour the UK and features Mary Plazas in the title role.
