American-Canadian soprano Sondra Radvanovsky presents her pièce de resistance as Donizetti’s Tudor Queens, showcasing her brilliant virtuosic and dramatic skills across three epic operas at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples this month. She discusses the contrasts and challenges with Opera Now in our February 2022 issue.

Elsewhere we celebrate the centenary of Renata Tebaldi, queen of the Met and La Scala, by exploring her legacy on stage and on record; Verdi goes Zen in Robert Wilson’s slow-motion Otello at Greek National Opera; librettist and director Tazewell Thompson introduces us to Blue, a new opera exploring racism and brutality in the police force that has been winning acclaim in the US; British tenor Allan Clayton on his Favourite Things; and what makes a ‘Brünnhilde Voice’ so special?
