The walls are closing in on Anne Boleyn as she fails to produce a male heir. Bursting with vocal pyrotechnics, Donizetti’s legendary masterpiece is a gripping tale of intrigue and betrayal. This sumptuous production marks the not-to-be-missed conclusion of Minnesota Opera’s Tudor trilogy.
Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.
