When Mary, Queen of Scots, was forced to abdicate her throne, she fled to England where she was kept imprisoned for more than 18 years before her cousin Queen Elizabeth I ordered her execution. Donizetti’s thrilling historical opera dramatises the relationship between the two queens, particularly in his rendering of their astonishingly intense – though entirely fictional – meeting.

This revival of David McVicar’s acclaimed 2012 production stars soprano Diana Damrau as Mary, mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton as Elizabeth and tenor Stephen Costello as the Earl of Leicester. Maurizio Benini conducts.
