OperaUpClose present

Donizetti's

Mary Queen of Scots (Maria Stuarda)

This autumn, St Andrews Voices hosts the Scottish premiere of OperaUpClose's new English version of Donizetti's Maria Stuarda.

Mary, Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth I go head-to-head in this historical tragedy, culminating in a fictitious meeting between the rival queens, which sizzles with vocal fireworks. Political leaders jostling for position as battle-lines are drawn over questions of national sovereignty? We’ll leave you to draw any contemporary parallels…
