Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro alla Scala
Maria Stuarda was laid to rest for more than a hundred years, finally being revived in 1958 in Bergamo under conductor Oliviero de Fabritiis. However, the real breakthrough for the opera came with Giorgio de Lullo’s Florentine production for the Maggio Musicale in 1967 (with set design and costumes by Pier Luigi Pizzi - director, set designer and costume designer at La Scala in 2008). As the two queens, Leyla Gencer and Shirley Verrett set the vocal standards. Since then, the triumph of Maria Stuarda has been unstoppable.
Various top interpreters have taken on the vocal and acting challenges of the main roles, including Montserrat Caballé, Beverly Sills, Janet Baker, Rosalind Plowright, Joan Sutherland, Huguette Tourangeau, Maria Chiara, Edita Gruberova and Agnes Baltsa. Mariella Devia as Maria and Anna Caterina Antonacci as Elisabetta have now also added their names to this illustrious list.
