“I am the one you do not like”
Mary’s Hand is a new opera for solo voice about Mary Tudor, first Queen Regnant of England. Surrounded by political and religious intrigue she risked her head, heart and even her soul to survive. Remembered as ‘Bloody Mary’, she has had bad press. Mary loved card games and Fortune dealt her a tricky hand. Let Mary set the record straight – choose a card so we may begin.
