In the current season the Junge Oper Rhein-Main company is once again actively engaged with its opera tour for BKB Charity. This time the company will present a classic Italian belcanto opera: Donizetti’s adaptation of Schiller’s famous Maria Stuart drama, which had its first performance at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan in 1853.
The Scottish Queen Maria Stuart, outcast by her own people, has been kept imprisoned by her cousin Elisabeth I., Queen of England for 18 years. Her favourite, the Earl of Leicester, desperately loves Maria and pleads with Elisabeth for her. In the end a meeting of both queens is arranged: Since the proud Elisabeth scoffs at her adversary, despite Leicester’s prior warning Maria loses her nerve. Instead of pleading for mercy, she insults her royal cousin. After long hesitation and enraged by Leicester’s disloyalty, Elisabeth finally signs the death warrant.
The public can look forward to an exciting opera evening with the Junge Oper Rhein-Main company this year as well . The aspiring stage performers and musicians play and make music at the highest level and ensure an unforgettable opera experience.
