English Touring Opera present a season of kings and queens in the battle for love, loyalty and power with each opera featuring a large chorus and live orchestra.
This is the first fully staged professional production of Rossini’s Elizabeth I to tour the UK.
Elizabeth I had the reputation of a queen who ruled with her head, and silenced her heart – Rossini’s opera contrasts the private and public spheres of her life and culminates in a virtuosic showdown between The Virgin Queen, her councillor, her lover and his wife.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
