Enjoy a thrilling tale of love, betrayal, and power set in Elizabethan England with this all-new production of Donizetti's Roberto Devereux, landing at the Sydney Opera this summer!

Why Watch Roberto Devereux

Watch an extraordinary new production of Roberto Devereux, hitting the Sydney Opera Stage soon. Veteran director Davide Livermore takes the wheel, using exciting digital technology to draw you into Elizabeth's world. Floor to ceiling LED panels move around the stage to create and transform the sets, and detailed period costumes offer you a glimpse into Tudor times. Jennifer Rowley, a Metropolitan Opera favorite, makes her debut as Elizabeth I. Elena Maximova is her secret rival, Sarah. Attala Ayan performs as the ill-fated titular character. Paolo Carignani conducts this magnificent production that promises to be a stand-out experience.

The Story

Elizabeth, the Virgin Queen, relishes the attention of a younger courtier: the ambitious and dashing Roberto Devereux. But Devereux has been accused of treason. Elizabeth must now choose between her country and her heart.

This tale of love, lust, and betrayal in the Tudor royal court may not stay true to historical events but makes for a sensational plot. Add Donizetti’s luxurious music, a brilliant cast, and an extraordinary new production, and it becomes a must-see.
