Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose present the only Scottish performance of their new English version of Donizetti’s Mary, Queen of Scots (Maria Stuarda). Two ferocious 16th century Queens, 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.

Donizetti’s powerful melodies will be performed in a new orchestration by Paul McKenzie for six singers, accompanied by piano, clarinet and violin. Discover a new angle on one of the most popular periods of British history through this thrilling production, performed in the round.

OperaUpClose return to St Andrews by popular demand, bringing this wonderful historical drama to a town replete with its own Mary Queen of Scots connections.

Venue: Younger Hall, North Street

Running Time: 2 hours 15 minutes
