Presto Classical

Katherine Cooper

June 2014

“This 1982 production [of Maria Stuarda] from English National Opera captures Dame Janet Baker in the final year of her operatic career, radiating authority and conviction as the ill-fated Mary. Sung in English, with a young Rosalind Plowright as Mary's antagonist Elizabeth (watch those sparks fly in the Confrontation Scene!), this is wonderful theatre as well as a fitting monument to one of the greatest singing actresses of the twentieth century.”
