The Anna Bolena Opera  by Gaetano Donizetti, will be screened on Saturday March 8 on the Mayamax Screen, at the Museo del Mundo Maya due to the excellent response of the Yucatecan society in previous seasons of the so called “Cinema Opera Cultural Program”. On March 8, the International Women’s Day is celebrated worldwide.

During this program, that is coordinated by the “Opera Yucatán” organization, a wide variety of Opera Works will be projected once a month. Admission is free.

In the list of works, is included, Don Pasquale, and Tristan and Isolde, by Richard Wagner, author that inspires a Festival organized by the institution to pay tribute and would take place during summer.

Anna Bolena is a “tragedia lirica” (Lyric Tragedy), or opera, in two acts by Gaetano Donizetti. Felice Romani wrote the Italian libretto after Ippolito Pindemonte’s Enrico VIII ossia Anna Bolena and Alessandro Pepoli’s Anna Bolena, both telling of the life of Anne Boleyn, the second wife of England’s King Henry VIII.

It is one of a number of operas by Donizetti which deal with the Tudor period in English history, including (in composition order) Il castello di Kenilworthin 1829, which was then followed by Anna BolenaMaria Stuarda (named for Mary, Queen of Scots) appeared in different forms in 1834 and 1835. Finally, in 1837, Roberto Devereux (named for a putative lover of Queen Elizabeth I of England) was presented. The leading female characters of the operas Anna BolenaMaria Stuarda, and Roberto Devereux are often referred to as the “Three Donizetti Queens.”

During the las season of the “Cinema Opera Cultural Program” 31 different operas were presented, these shows were attended by over 5,600 spectators, which shows the growing interest of music lovers on this gender.
