Elizabeth I is the one who pulls the strings. But Mary Stuart has all the dynamite! Therewith she blows up her husband. Excellent! He utterly deserves it!
Elizabeth hasn’t got a husband but a scaffold – that’s where Mary has to go… – but not just yet. In the meantime, kings are being locked away in their cloakrooms, highlanders gallop in pleated skirts through the heather,
tiny Catholic spies puke on their shoes and Friedrich Schiller marvels if he ever read Mary Stuart.
You can’t always get what you want!… but you must see “Queens”! It’s Scottish, its British and so full of music.
