Anna Bolena: Opera Australia Sydney
Sydney Opera House, Sydney - Joan Sutherland Theatre
About the Event
The tale of the tragic fate of the second wife of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, will be performed at Opera Australia Sydney this season.
Anna Bolena is a tragic character, deeply hurt, yet dignified and majestic – a completely different picture from how she is depicted in historical sources. The story of the innocent English queen sentenced to death by her heartless husband Henry VIII who fell out of love with her touched deeply the audience already at the time the opera was written. By circumstance, however, the opera was forgotten only to be discovered again in 1950s. Do not miss this wonderfule event happening on the world-renowned stage.
