ROBIN NORTON-HALE’s new libretto of Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda premieres this Autumn by OperaUpClose in Tudor & Elizabethan National Trust properties.

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…

This version of Donizetti’s thrilling opera, directed by ROBIN NORTON-HALE, will be performed by six singers accompanied by piano, violin and clarinet, at unique locations with direct links to the two Queens.
