STREAMING FOR FREE FROM 7pm on 24 April TO 23 May Filmed live from The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, GLORIANA by Benjamin Britten is a portrait of the public and private faces of Elizabeth I and a brilliant depiction of the Tudor court and the tension between affairs of state and affairs of the heart. Focusing on Elizabeth’s relationship with the young Earl of Essex, Gloriana captures the dichotomy between the public image of the Virgin Queen and her seething personal feelings – a familiar dichotomy in these days of celebrity-worship and media scrutiny.
