Sunrise Presents Opera
The broadcast of Donizetti's "Maria Stuarda" will be presented live for only one day at the Metropolitan Opera, on Saturday, Jan. 19.
The Sunrise Theater in downtown Southern Pines will air the live production in high definition.
Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, one of the world's most exciting singers, takes on the virtuosic bel canto role of the doomed Mary, Queen of Scots. Director David McVicar turns to the second opera of Donizetti's Tudor trilogy, which explores regal characters at fateful moments of their lives.
Elza van den Heever sings Elizabeth I, and Maurizio Benini conducts this Met premiere production. Soprano Deborah Voigt hosts the transmission and conducts backstage interviews with the stars.
"Maria Stuarda" starts at 12:55 p.m. The run time is 2 hours and 46 minutes, including one intermission.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling the Sunrise Office at (910) 692-8501 or ordered online at www.sunrisetheater.org. Tickets are also sold at the box office before each show.
