About Roberto Devereux
In Tudor England, Queen Elizabeth I rules (literally). Ignoring advice from the court, she declines to charge her lover with treason, but he's not making it easy for her. Behind her formidable public persona hides a fragile heart that aches to reconnect with a suitor whose loyalties are uncertain. If ever there was a diva role, this is it—careening from outbursts of rage to heartbroken laments — and glamorous Spanish soprano Davinia Rodríguez has the vocal and dramatic goods to deliver a knock-out performance. The magnificent tenor Ramón Vargas returns as "Roberto Devereux," the scoundrel at the center of all the trouble.
