To mark the 500th anniversary of the ‘Black Queen’ Catherine de Medici’s birth we portray the survival strategies employed by the rival queens of C16th Europe.  This enthralling play of matriarchs includes assassination, duplicity, religious warfare, and (in Catherine’s own words) ‘passion, hatred, and vengeance’, illustrated with music (by Attaignant, Arbeau, Bataille, Caccini, Dowland, Guedron, Strozzi), readings from contemporary correspondence, as well as the sonnets and speeches of Shakespeare.
