About performance

One of the fundamental plays of European Romanticism

Mary, Queen of Scots, and a Catholic, is accused of conspiracy against Elisabeth I and of having murdered her second husband. Schiller portrays Mary is both a hot-bloodied and pious woman who has come to terms with her imminent death. Elisabeth I, the virgin queen, is proud, cool competitor when it comes to power struggle, as well as that for love. The very moment she signs Mary´s death decree, she marks political victory, though at the cost of moral loss. It brings no respite, peace, or gratification.   Friedrich Schiller has mastered a captivating drama about politics, love, faith and complexity of our inner self, as well as that of decisions taken by politicians, and about and their victims born out of their decisions. The romantic drama about the fateful encounter in the lives of two major monarchs is directed by Slovenian stage director Diego de Brea.
