The Met: Live in HD Series: Maria Stuarda
Lake Placid Center for the Arts presents Maria Stuardaby Donizetti on Saturday, Jan. 19 at 1p.m.
This program is a rare opportunity to witness Berlioz’s vast epic, last performed at the Met in 2003. Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, one of the world’s most exciting singers, takes on the virtuosic bel canto role of the doomed Mary, Queen of Scots. Director David McVicar turns to the second opera of Donizetti’s Tudor trilogy, which explores regal characters at fateful moments of their lives. Elza van den Heever sings Elizabeth I, and Maurizio Benini conducts. (Running time approx 3hrs 15mins)
Tickets are $18 / $16 LPCA members / $12 students 18 & under.
