Chelsea Opera Group: Roberto Devereux

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

A 19th-century Italian opera about the Tudors? Catch Donizetti’s drama about Queen Elizabeth I and the Earl of Essex in concert.

Donizetti doesn’t let history get in the way of dramatic effect, but this opera contains his best portrait of Elizabeth and its energetic overture manages to incorporate an anachronistic rendition of ‘God save the queen.’

Bel Canto specialist Helena Dix sings Elizabeth and the Chorus and Orchestra of Chelsea Opera Group are conducted by Dane Lam.
