English Touring Opera: Rossini's Elizabeth I

The first fully-staged professional production of Rossini's opera to tour the UK is sparkling with vocal fireworks and virtuosic showdowns.

Elizabeth I had a reputation as a monarch who ruled with her head, and silenced her heart – but writers and composers have remained 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.

There will also be a pre-performance talk for this performance at 6.30pm in the Peter Pears Recital Room - tickets are free, but please book.

Thursday 11 April, 7.30pm - Snape Maltings Concert Hall
