Schillers Königinnen-Drama in kleiner Besetzung. Open Air.
"Her life is my death, her death my life."
Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, has been imprisoned in England for 19 years. Still in the dungeon, she is a constant threat to Queen Elizabeth of England; the British people are calling for Mary's head to finally have peace after decades of religious and political tension. Elizabeth is torn - having a queen executed seems like a portent for herself, as the winds of popular favor can shift at any moment. Religious delusion and political calculation are not only close to each other in "Mary Stuart", but are also inseparably linked with erotic and personal conflict. The struggle between politics and morality comes to a head in a personal conflict between the two queens. None of their actions can be merely personal; no step, no letter, no movement goes unseen. The private is political. High emotionality and deep loneliness are the driving forces of the characters in this concentrated version of Schiller's drama of the queens.
