Opera Roberto Devereux čerpá námet z anglických dejín a je tretím operným portrétom kráľovnej Alžbety I. Ako posledná žijúca dcéra Henricha VIII. a Anny Boleynovej nastúpila na anglický trón rok 1558. Táto výrazná postava inšpirovala Gaetana Donizettiho po prvýkrát v opere Elisabetta all castello di Kenilworth, skomponovanej na námet Waltera Scotta, v druhom hudobno - dramatickom obraze Alžbety podľa Schillerovej drámy ju konfrontuje so škótskou kráľovnou Mariou Stuartovou a napokon do tretice, v Robertovi Devereuxovi, stojí v popredí jej dramatický vzťah ku grófovi z Essexu. Partitúra sa rodila v čase hlbokej životnej krízy skladateľa, ktorý v krátkom časovom úseku stratil oboch rodičov, mŕtvo narodené i krátko žijúce dieťa a napokon aj manželku. Premiéra sa uskutočnila 29. októbra 1837 v neapolskom Teatro San Carlo s obrovským úspechom.

O rok neskôr pre parížsky Théâtre Italien pripravil modifikovanú verziu, kde v predohre zaznieva motív anglickej hymny God Save the Queen. Podobne ako väčšina belcantových vážnych opier aj Roberto Devereux na istý čas zmizol z javísk a vrátila ho až mohutná vlna ich renesancie v polovici minulého storočia.

The queen of belcanto Edita Gruberová  will retire from stage after a glorious career spanning five decades with a stage appearance in her native country of Slovakia. In two performances - the premiere on November 27 and the first reprise on December 1 - she will sing the title role of Queen Elisabeth I. in Donizetti´s final installment of the Tudor Trilogy.

52 years after her debut in Bratislava, a short engagement in Banská Bystrica and the ensuing extraordinary international career, our „primadonna assoluta" returns to the stage of a Slovak opera house to symbolically end her career. In the fifty years on the stage of leading opera houses around the world, she has rarely returned to sing in her native country and has appeared only in concerts, never in a production at one of the opera houses in Slovakia.

The production will truly be an unusual one- it will reflect the current pandemic restrictions and observe social distancing between the singers. This novel „covid-production" is staged by the director of the drama company Anton Korenči, choreographer is the ballet director Andrej Petrovič. The production will feature a striking setting and historic costumes. The focal point of the staging will be the crown from the legendary Munich production in which Ms. Gruberová bid farewell to her beloved Munich audience in March 2019 and received „her" crown as a farewell gift from the Bavarian State Opera.

Alongside Ms. Gruberová, an international cast will perform the first premiere of the new season at the State Opera Košice. The Russian mezzosoprano Elena Maximova will sing the role of Sarah, Duchess of Nottingham, the tenor David Astorga from Costa Rica takes on the role of Robert, the Earl of Essex. The ensemble members mezzosoprano Myroslava Havryliuk and guest tenor Juraj Hollý will complete the cast. Maestro Peter Valentovič, who has accompanied Ms. Gruberová as pianist and conducted her on concerts and operas around the world, is the musical director.

„We have a confirmation that Ms. Gruberová, who lives in Zurich, will bid farewell to her operatic career at the State Theatre in Košice. This will be shortly after she is scheduled to sing the Slovak national anthem on October 22 in Bern during the official visit of Slovak president Ms. Zuzana Čaputová at the wish of Ms. Čaputová," said the director of the State Theatre Košice opera company Mr. Roland Khern-Tóth.

 

„In this opera, everything is condensed - emotions, plot, actions of characters. All this is brilliantly depicted in the music, there is not a single unneccesary note in the whole opera," Ms. Gruberová said in an interview for the internet portal Opera Slovakia in 2019. „Like most operas, it is about love, but there are many other emotions as well. Queen Elisabeth feels a strong passion towards Robert, but she suspects that she has a rival in love. This uncertaintly drives her into despair. Eventually her worries are confirmed and she finds out that Robert has lied to her. And what could be worse than a woman cheated? Especially, when the woman has all the power of a ruler?" added Gruberová.
