After the long break due to the COVID-19 cancellations, Diana Damrau makes her much awaited return to the operatic stage as the title role in Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda at the Opernhaus Zürich, where she originally made her role debut in the spectacular David Alden production. Salome Jicia portrays her rival Elisabetta, Paolo Fanale sings Roberto, Earl of Leicester, and Nicolas Testé is Giorgio Talbot. Enrique Mazzola leads the orchestra again.

Maria Stuarda opens September 27, with three additional performances on October 7, 11 and 15. The September 27 performance will be broadcast live and will be available for 48 hours on the Opernhaus Zürich’s Oper für alle digital page.

Diana Damrau and Nicolas Testé appear in Sofia’s Bulgaria Hall on September 4 and 6 for their first two performances of the Royal Affairs Tour, featuring overtures, arias, and duets from operas featuring Kings and Queens.

This tour was inspired by her latest album release, Tudor Queens, in which she assumes the crowns of three different Tudor queens, the central characters in operas by Donizetti: Anne Boleyn (Anna Bolena), Mary, Queen of Scots (Maria Stuarda), and Elizabeth I (Roberto Devereux).

Pavel Baleff will accompany them in their European tour, conducting the resident orchestras in each venue; in this case, the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra.

After her performances as Maria Stuarda at the Opernhaus Zürich and the Live Met Gala in Malta, they will resume the tour in Munich on November 30.
