Angela Meade stars in one of bel canto's most dazzling roles
In Tudor England, Queen Elizabeth I rules (literally). Ignoring advice from the court, she declines to charge her lover with treason, but he's not making it easy for her. Behind her formidable public persona hides a fragile heart that aches to reconnect with a suitor whose loyalties are uncertain. If ever there was a diva role, this is it—careening from outbursts of rage to heartbroken laments—and soprano Angela Meade, one of today's brightest stars, delivered an unforgettable performance opposite the magnificent tenor Ramón Vargas as the scoundrel at the center of all the trouble.
