Young, ambitious, with new political ideas in tow: Mary, widowed queen of France, is asked to return to her native Scotland and take over the crown.But as soon as she reaches Scotland, intrigues and rumours begin to surface that poison the country little by little. Amidst political ploys and schemes at court, as well as her endeavours to win the people's allegiance for herself, she ultimately no longer knows who she can trust in the struggle for power and control: her newlywed husband Lord Darnley perhaps? Or maybe her half-brother James Stewart? But when Lord Darnley brutally murders Mary's confidant and friend, Riccio, before her eyes, the bloody finale begins. Compelling musical theatre meets historical crime story and, while remaining climate-neutral, promises great opera!
