I just listened to John Birge's interview with Kevin Newbury and Brenda Harris about the opera Roberto Devereux. The interview feature, titled A Tudor Tutorial from Minnesota Opera, may catch your interest:
Ahead of opening night on January 30th, Classical MPR's John Birge spoke with Newbury and Harris about real-life Tudor history, on-stage Tudor heartbreak, and how "The Virgin Queen" may -- or may not -- have been "The Original Cougar."
The original cougar? Listen to the interview and consider the facts - and fiction - of the story, as well as the intricacies of the production.
