What´s the plot?
LIVE IN CINEMAS MONDAY 24 JUNE 2013 Award-winning director Richard Jones directs a Gloriana for our time, featuring Susan Bullock, Toby Spence and Kate Royal, conducted by Paul Daniel. Britten's portrait of the public and private faces of Elizabeth I is 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.
