Presented by Odyssey Opera
Avenue of the Arts / Huntington Avenue Theatre
11/1/19 - 11/3/19


Queen Mary I is infatuated with Fenimoore, who is in love with Clotilde, who in turn loves Ernesto. Romance and political intrigue are treacherous bedfellows in this opera based on Victor Hugo's play. A remarkable and largely forgotten opera, its expressive vocal characterization paints an unforgettable portrait of a Queen and the repercussions of her indulgence in an unwise love.

Running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, with one intermission.
