Gaetano Donizetti wrote Maria Stuarda at the peak of his career as a composer. And although he yielded to the charms of the new romantic literature in the themes of many of his works, he was keen on returning to English history as a compelling source of spectacular themes for the stage. He was intrigued by the fate of the Scottish Queen Mary in Friedrich von Schiller's adaptation, but unlike the original, Donizetti avoided political and religious issues. However, he kept the legendary fictional scene of Mary's encounter with Elizabeth. Expressive dramatic conflict, abundant psychological character profiles, lyrical passages, and a great story featuring two rival queens make this suggestive production by the French director Gilbert Blin a narrative piece of the historic theatre and the first part of a planned open-ended "Tudor trilogy".
 
The duration of the performance is approximate, as the preview has not been held yet.
