Anna Bolena premiered at Milan’s Teatro Carcano in 1830, and was Donizetti’s first great international success. David McVicar, who created the Met’s new production of Anna Bolena, says of the work: “Donizetti takes the bel canto form and explores every possible dramatic opportunity within it. The lynchpin of the story is Anna Bolena’s inability to provide Henry VIII with the male heir that he craves. And, of course, to be a wife of Henry VII is to risk as much as you gain.”
