Studio Theatre at the Wharf Pier 4, Walsh Bay. Carnivale '85, sponsored by the NSW Govt. "Maria Stuarda (Mary Stuart)" is a tragic opera in two acts, by Gaetano Donizetti, to a libretto by Giuseppe Bardari, based on Andrea Maffei's translation of Friedrich Schiller's 1800 play "Maria Stuart." The play deals with the Tudor period in English history. The story is loosely based on the lives of Mary, Queen of Scots (Mary Stuart) and her cousin Queen Elizabeth I. Schiller had invented the confrontation of the two Queens, who in fact never met.
