A Semi-Staged Concert Starring Sondra Radvanovsky
The Three Queens


Featuring the finales of Anna Bolena, Maria Stuarda, and Roberto Devereux by Gaetano Donizetti.

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.

Language - Sung in Italian with projected English translations
