Maria Stuarda at Irish National Opera

But the singing, particularly from Erraught and Devin, really made this production. Erraught caressed her pianissimo runs with exquisite finesse. It was a voice that inspired pity that would have moved even the stoniest of hearts. Her Act 2 scene with Talbot dripped with feeling. But she could let it rip too, Maria's insults glowing with indignant fierceness at the end of Act 1.
