This story of regal cousins, Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I—rivals for the crown and the same nobleman's love—delivers fascinating historical drama. 

Elizabeth has imprisoned Mary, suspecting her of treason, but the Duke of Leicester, her advisor and Mary's lover, convinces the queen to meet her cousin; tempers soon surface and rage out of control. Mary, condemned to death, faces her demise with great dignity.

Spectacular vocal fireworks and bel canto singing are hallmarks of Donizetti's tragedy.

"DiDonato's voice is at present nothing less than 24-carat gold." -The Times, London
