Which Donizetti Queen Are You?

Posted 11/27/2019

Gaetano Donizetti's trilogy of Tudor queens is one of the finest examples of bel canto singing. Each opera (Anna Bolena, Maria Stuarda, and Roberto Devereux) demands a powerhouse soprano in the principal role. The dramatic lives of these three queens need no embellishment, only beautiful music.

Find out which Queen you relate to most and experience the stories of proud Mary Stuart, passionate Anne Boleyn, and mighty Queen Elizabeth I in THE THREE QUEENS, this December at Lyric Opera of Chicago.
