The Life and Times of Queen Christina of Sweden

Performance

1:30pm

When she became Queen of Sweden in 1632, Christina was only six years old. Growing up, she enjoyed learning fencing with her cousins, studying languages, and inviting musicians to perform at court. She didn't care for dance lessons, or for directing wars — and although all rulers were supposed to get married, she wasn't interested in that either. What she really wanted was to go to Rome and meet Italy's best composers. Soon all of Europe was talking about this unconventional queen and her travels. They even asked: Was Christina a woman or a man?

Performance: February 10, 2018, 1:30pm, for all-ages audience; at Home of the Good Shepherd in Wallingford
Cost: $12 adults, $6 seniors and students. Tickets can be purchased here.

This performance is co-presented by SHAK and Early Music Seattle in partnership with the Nordic Heritage Museum.
