For Her Majesty
Depicting a Queen at her strongest, yet perhaps her most vulnerable, Gloriana serves a fitting tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II, in this time of national mourning.
Benjamin Britten’s portrait of a monarch’s struggles, first composed for the Coronation of the late Queen Elizabeth II, Gloriana is presented as a concert performance, featuring the ENO Chorus and Orchestra under the baton of ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins, and featuring a bevy of ENO favourites, such as Charles Rice, Sophie Bevan, Alexandra Oomens and Alex Otterburn.
Set in the twilight years of Queen Elizabeth I’s (Christine Rice) reign, Gloriana focuses on the relationship between the monarch and the Earl of Essex, Robert Devereaux (Robert Murray). At first friends and confidantes, the Earl and Queen later become at odds with a series of unfortunate circumstances, including an attempted coup.
Join in commemorating the life and times of Queen Elizabeth II, with this performance of Benjamin Britten’s Gloriana.
