Tilted Field, in association with Son of Semele, presents...

The Last Days of
Mary Stuart

an electro-opera

The Last Days of Mary Stuart blurs the lines of history to create a musical allegory for our time. Mary Stuart is the disgraced and charismatic Queen of Scots, fast becoming an It-Girl on a meteoric rise in 16th-Century England. As she drives herself into the rift over Queen Elizabeth’s legitimacy, foreign powers threaten and youths are radicalized abroad. It is in this political hothouse that Mary Stuart grows her cult of personality that menaces the future of the English Empire and the new world in which we live.

Electronica + England + The Fall of a Queen
= The Last Days of Mary Stuart, an Electro Opera
