Arts Picks: Anna Bolena

Minnesota Opera has already staged two of the Donizetti “Tudor Trilogy”: Roberto Devereux and Maria Stuarda. But Anna Bolena, about the second wife of Henry VIII, beats them all.

Minnesota Opera has already staged two of the Donizetti “Tudor Trilogy”: Roberto Devereux and Maria Stuarda. But Anna Bolena, about the second wife of Henry VIII, beats them all. The opera has some of the most compelling coloratura music ever written, a fantastical woman-gone-mad scene (always a bonus), and one of the most sublime soprano/mezzo duets in the repertoire. Nov. 10-18, Ordway Center, St. Paul, 612-333-6669, mnopera.org
