English Touring Opera present a season of Kings and Queens in the battle for love, loyalty and power
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.
