With the present release of this Donizettian masterpiece, recorded live in 2001, Dynamic makes an historic move, becoming the first Italian label to produce a DVD opera. This very high quality production by Teatro Donizetti di Bergamo features, in the roles of the two queens, Carmela Remigio (Maria Stuarda) and Sonia Ganassi (Elisabetta), two great artists here making a fine display of their excellent vocal and acting skills. Francesco Esposito’s direction and costumes, and Italo Grassi’s sets are very effective and superbly highlighted by the filming. What makes the release even more interesting is the use of a new critical edition made by the renowned Swedish musicologist Anders Wiklund for Casa Ricordi. The CD Booklet offers exhaustive liner notes, and plot and libretto in four languages. The DVD has subtitles in 6 languages (Italian, English, German, French, Spanish and Japanese), as well as interviews to the two female interpreters, the conductor, the director and the set-designer. This title is also available on CD (Dynamic 407/1-2).
