      When one selects the subject of a gay king and his tragic story for an opera, the aspect of homosexuality is naturally at the foreground, as is the question of whether such a subject is still relevant in Central Europe in view of the strivings for equal rights there. EdwardII is not the  rst “gay” opera and will surely not be the last one, either. But most dramas concerning relationships in literature and opera have always focussed on the classical heterosexual constellation. Telling more stories about love between people of the same sex, however, does not necessary have to be due to current political reality. Rather, it is a sign of a growing social variety that is also re ected in contemporary art. (Andrea Lorenzo Scartazzini)
