     ROSSINI
     Elizabeth I (Elisabetta, regina d'inghilterra) shows the woman behind
     the monarch. She had the reputation of a queen who ruled with her
     head and silenced her heart – but writers and composers remain
     fascinated with her private life, in particular the rivalry with her cousin
     Mary Queen of Scots. Rossini’s opera contrasts the private and public
     spheres of her life, sparkling with vocal fireworks which culminate in a
     virtuosic showdown between the virgin queen, her councillor, her lover
     and his wife.
     The production, featuring Mary Plazas in the title role, is directed by
     ETO’s General Director James Conway and is the first fully staged
     professional production of Rossini’s opera to tour the UK.
     Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
