Why See LA Opera - Roberto Devereux?
Placido Domingo Performs As The Duke of Nottingham
The LA Opera's 2019/20 season continues the preeminent company's groundbreaking spirit with six new-to-the-city productions, one of which features the one and only Placido Domingo. The Spanish opera icon was an important driving force of the opera's formation in 1987 and became a formidable ambassador both on and off the stage. For the first time ever, Domingo performs the role of the Duke of Nottingham in Donizetti's soaring tragic opera Roberto Devereux.
Bel canto champion Donizetti's most spine-tingling melodies, culminating in the heart wrenching final aria 'Vivi, in grato, a lei accanto', punctuate the dramatically tense story of the titular ambitious English nobleman and favorite of Queen Elizabeth I. Accused of high treason, all he has to do is present the ring his lover, the queen, has bestowed upon him and affirm his loyalty to her.
