The Cape Town Opera (CTO) presents Maria Stuarda, Matthew Wild’s minimalist staging that premiered to great acclaim in 2015.
Royal intrigues explode onto stage as Donizetti dramatises the fatal conflict between two Tudor Queens, Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots, bitter rivals for the throne and for the love of Robert Leicester.
Violina Anguelov and Noluvuyiso Mpofu return to repeat their portrayals of the conflicted monarchs, with Kamal Khan once again leading the cast, CTO Chorus and Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra in an inspired reading of Donizetti’s masterly score.
Venue: Artscape Opera House, Artscape Theatre Centre, 1-10 D.F. Malan St, Foreshore, Cape Town
Time: Wed 7.30pm to 10.30pm | Sat 6pm to 9pm
Cost: R130 – R280
