On Friday 26 April 2019, OperaUpClose held a Gala Night performance of their new English version of Donizetti’s Mary, Queen of Scots at The Charterhouse in Clerkenwell, London. Our guests enjoyed a reception with canapés and wine in the atmospheric Old Library and Cloisters before taking a tour around the historic building, led by one of its current residents. Following the performance of Mary, Queen of Scots in the Great Chamber (where Elizabeth I held meetings with her privy council 400 years prior), the evening continued with a post-show Q&A involving members of the cast and creative team.
This event was a fundraiser, raising money towards OperaUpClose’s Next 10 Years appeal. Find out more here.
