1981 NYCO "Maria Stuarda" - "Confrontation Scene"

Although no known footage of Sills in "Maria Stuarda" exists, this is the next best thing. These excerpts are from a 1981 NYCO production using the same sets and costumes that Sills performed in, and it preserves the intense performance of Elizabeth I by Marisa Galvany, who often appeared with Sills in the production.

Here Ashley Putnam sings Maria, with Barry McCauley as Leicester and William Justus as Talbot.
