Maria Stuarda Live in HD in theatres tomorrow!
Donizetti's Maria Stuarda
January 19, 2013, 12:55 pm ET in selected theaters near you!
Joyce DiDonato's performance in the title role of Mary, Queen of Scots, "will be pointed to as a model of singing," full of "plush richness and aching beauty," in David McVicar's Met premiere production. Elza van den Heever is "a vocally burnished and emotionally tempestuous" Elizabeth (New York Times). "A luminous performance" (AP). Matthew Polenzani sings Leicester and Maurizio Benini conducts.
Maddy, Jonny, and I will be going to The Cobb Theater in Leesburg to see this incredible opera based on the historical tragedy surrounding Mary, Queen of Scots during the reign of Queen Elizabeth.
Hope you too can get out tomorrow and experience this marvelous cultural event. As Barbara always said, "Enjoy the Arts!"

How wonderful that you are going
I listen to Classical South Florida 90.7 here in South Florida. They were broadcasting this opera live from the Met today & I at least heard the pre-opera discussion of it and then just the opening bars of music before I had to get out of the car. It sounded so intriguing and, of course, I thought of Barbara.
