“Queen Elizabeth 1 gloried in her reputation as the world’s most famous virgin. Unmarried to the end, throughout her reign, she used her maidenhood as a pawn, promising one great European after another the greatest gift she could bestow- her hand in marriage.”writes Elin Manahan Thomas in her programme notes (see events page)
