About this show

A queen falls from grace as her unfaithful king plots to bring his mistress to the throne. The golden age of Italian bel canto opera shines with dark reflections in Anna Bolena, Donizetti's moving retelling of Anne Boleyn's tragedy. Condemned to death by King Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn accepts her fate and tumbles into madness as she awaits her unjust execution. In her role debut, American soprano Sondra Radvanovsky portrays the wronged Queen Anne in a striking production directed by Stephen Lawless and conducted by Antonello Allemandi.
