BBC Radio 3 have recorded the performance of Roberto Devereux on 6 October, and it will be broadcast on Monday 4 November at 7. 15pm.
Recorded during the opening night of Roberto Devereux at Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff, the performance features Leonardo Capalbo as Roberto Devereux and Alexandra Deshorties as Queen Elizabeth. Daniele Rustioni conducted to great acclaim “Daniele Rustioni’s super-charged conducting: from his smashing account of the overture (with its quaint quotation of the National Anthem) to the ringing final chords, he infused the drama with a hotly electrifying dynamism.” **** The Telegraph
