Program Monday 27 April to Sunday 3 May:
Monday, April 27: Anna Boleyn, by Donizetti
It stars Anna Netrebko, Ekaterina Gubanova, Stephen Costello and Ildar Abdrazakov. Directed by Marco Armiliato. Broadcast live via satellite on 15 October 2011. 
David McVicar’s atmospheric and melancholy production captures the drama of this fascinating piece of British history, told as only Donizetti could. International superstar Anna Netrebko is Queen Anna Boleyn, who feels trapped in an unhappy marriage to King Henry VIII (Ildar Abdrazakov), whose wandering eye has focused on another woman, Jane Seymour (Ekaterina Gubanova), Anna’s friend, but now her unintentional rival. Add to this an early love of Anna, Percy (Stephen Costello), who returns to court from exile, and the result is a haunting and explosive account of the Queen’s tragic last days, before she is performed in one of the most moving and dazzling moments in the entire opera. 
Tuesday, April 28: Maria Stuarda, by Donizetti
It stars Elza van den Heever, Joyce DiDonato and Matthew Polenzani. Directed by Maurizio Benini. Broadcast live via satellite on 19 January 2013. 
Joyce DiDonato delivers a sensational performance as Mary, Queen of Scots, in the drama of the bel singing of Donizetti, in front of Elza van den Heever as Queen Elizabeth.

Wednesday, April 29: Roberto Devereux, from Donizetti
It starred Sondra Radvanovsky, El-na Garanca, Matthew Polenzani and Mariusz Kwiecien. Directed by Maurizio Benini. Broadcast live via satellite on 16 April 2016.
Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky completes her long foray as donizetti’s three Tudor queens by playing, in this latter installment, Elizabeth I. David McVicar’s atmospheric production frames the queen and Earl of Essex’s dramatic and heartbreaking love story as a work within a play that unfolds before members of the royal court. Radvanovsky’s depiction, like the mature monarch, is a feat that exposes the conflict between his public duties as ruler of England and his private feelings as a woman. Matthew Polenzani is the Earl of Essex, Roberto Devereux, the object of his affection which is being debated between two women. She plays Sarah and Mariusz Kwiecien as her husband, the Duke of Nottingham.
