Musgrave puts this considerable drama under a musical magnifying glass: her word-setting amplifies all the intensity and the voices shine


Why See Mary, Queen of Scots?

Classical & OperaTrue-life Historical

Love and Treachery

Thea Musgrave's 1977 opera Mary, Queen of Scots gets its English National Opera premiere in February 2025! A powerful work exploring the turbulence of the reign of of one of history's most fascinating monarchs, the Scottish Queen's psychological turmoil is poignantly portrayed during her journey from queen to prisoner, with betrayals aplenty everywhere she looks.

With Musgraves' score creating the perfect atmosphere of Elizabethan Scotland, its innovative orchestration is as irresistible as the drama of the story itself. Conducted by Joana Carneiro and featuring Heidi Stober as Queen Mary, don't miss this dramatic modern take on one of the most famous periods in British history.
