DONIZETTI, GAETANO: MARIA STUARDA (2 DVDS)
“Elza van der Heever is quite brilliant as she moves from skittish to jealous, contemptuous and baleful. The three men are all good...DiDonato is an absolute knock-out...spellbinding through a perfect combination of singing and acting. Maurizio Benini conducts impeccably."
