Notes & Reviews:

One of Donizetti's most emotionally raw operas, 'Roberto Devereux ossia Il conte di Essex' was also the third to be loosely based on episodes in the life of Queen Elizabeth I. It deals with the love of Elizabeth and her favourite, the Earl of Essex, perhaps most tellingly expressed in the Act I duet, 'Nascondi, frena i palpiti, o misero mio core' (Hide, hold back your palpitation, oh my wretched heart!) Elizabeth's subsequent abdication is, however, a matter of dramatic license, yet provides a memorable operatic conclusion to this tragedy of love and jealousy as she despairs at the death of her lover – 'Quel sangue versato al ciel s'innalza' (The blood that is spilt rises up to Heaven).
