THE THREE QUEENS

A Semi-Staged Concert Starring
SONDRA RADVANOVSKY

Featuring the finales of Anna Bolena, Maria Stuarda, and Roberto Devereux by Gaetano Donizetti
Sung in Italian with projected English translations


Three of the most extraordinary women in history grace Donizetti’s “Three Queens” trilogy: proud Mary Stuart, passionate Anne Boleyn, and mighty Queen Elizabeth I. Each is a stupendous role for a true singing actress, who must combine glorious sound with masterful technique and incomparable charisma. Lyric favorite Sondra Radvanovsky is one of the very few singers of our time to have commanded all three of these roles in a single season, which brought her ecstatic praise from critics and audiences internationally.

Singing the finales of Anna Bolena, Maria Stuarda, and Roberto Devereux in semi-staged performances featuring the Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus and artists of The Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center Ensemble, this magnificent American diva will give Lyric audiences vocal fireworks to remember forever.
“Singing Donizetti’s three queens in one season is a bravura feat.”
-THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Flawless….she seizes upon these works as powerful and personal music dramas.”
-THE NEW YORK TIMES on SONDRA RADVANOVSKY in ANNA BOLENA

“ Her high notes blazing, the Berwyn-born soprano tore into the long and diabolically difficult title role….the visceral quality of Radvanovsky’s vocally compelling and dramatically affecting performance was just the ticket to send sparks flying in the coloratura stratosphere.”
-CHICAGO TRIBUNE on SONDRA RADVANOVSKY in ANNA BOLENA at LYRIC
