Robert Wilson | Isabelle Huppert | Ludovico Einaudi

a production of Théâtre de la Ville-Paris

Great reunion between Robert Wilson and Isabelle Huppert! At stake: the life and torments of Mary Stuart, queen of Scotland and France.
Glory, prison and murders…
Ever inventive, Robert Wilson offers great Isabelle Huppert the throne of Mary, Queen of Scotland, the queen who lost her crown because of her passions. Mary is a woman who fought the forces of history to control her destiny. The day before her execution, she is still fighting. She fights while she seeks the voice to call on Divine justice. She writes history. There was her childhood at the French court. Afterwards, an early widowhood put an end to her dance. She remembers. She was back in Scotland. Braving captivity was her nature. She wanted a strong man. That was the beginning. She married, had a son and murder occurred. Nothing is the same anymore, life follows a new rhythm. Catholics, Protestants, Mary, Elizabeth, Love, Death. Escaping was her destiny and that is how her reign came to an end. She did not try to save her life. She tried to perpetuate herself. On her last morning, Mary, Queen of Scotland, was dressed in red.
