    Incredible Drama

    This production of Maria Stuarda is interesting in that the set is non-traditional - it consists of mazelike structures colored by lighting, portions of which are movable, representing the intrigue and circuitous paths that the various characters move through while attempting to get what they want. Central, of course, are Elizabeth (played by Sonia Ganassi), and Maria Stuarda (Queen of Scots, played with depth by Fiorenza Cedolins), each of whom possesses a strong personality and absolute sense of "this is how things should be". And as any Donizetti opera lover knows, Maria does not win this particular competition.

    However, the dialog and drama between the two, as well as the interplay between Roberto and Giorgio, make for a fine dramatic feast. Ms. Cedolins shows a range of emotion ranging from incense to vulnerability to pride in sense of self. As Lord Guglielmo Cecil, Marco Caria does a fine job as the manipulator of the interaction between Elizabeth and Leicester, who loves Maria and does his level best to convince Elizabeth to meet with Maria in the hope that she can be convinced to free her.

    While it can be argued that Maria Stuarda is the weakest of Donizetti's trilogy of bel canto operas on Tudor queens, the palpable jealousy and hatred between Ganassi's Elizabeth and Cedolins' Maria makes for a wonderful operatic feast. This production proved itself to be a worthy addition to this opera lovers Donizetti collection.
