About Opera Australia presents Maria Stuarda in Concert

A throne is not made for two… Which Queen will rule her country and his heart?

Every aria demands greatness. Some interpretations transcend talent to reach for the sublime. With its intense trills and stratospheric highs, Maria Stuarda calls for a true prima donna to portray the ill-fated monarch in this concert rendition of Donizetti’s bel canto masterpiece.

Russian soprano Olga Peretyatko takes up the mantle of La Superba Montserrat Caballé and La Stupenda Joan Sutherland, giving us a Mary Queen of Scots of lyrical beauty.

Her coloratura finds its counterpoint in the darker tones of mezzo-soprano Carmen Topciu, who debuts as Mary’s steel-hearted cousin Queen Elizabeth I.

Bound by blood but divided by their beliefs, the rivalry between Mary and her former ally, the brilliant Virgin Queen, couldn’t be more bitter. Hanging in the balance is the English throne, and Leicester’s love.

French bass Nicholas Testé is masterful as Mary’s confessor Talbot while Indianborn Australian tenor Shanul Sharma makes The Earl of Leicester irresistible with a voice capable of “dazzling fireworks” (The Age) and “laser-like precision” (Limelight Magazine).

Let the power games begin!
