Lessing's Emilia Galotti
is a tale of absolute power, lust and honour. This Enlightenment-era tragedy tells the story of the virtuous Emilia, whose wedding day starts a chain of events which unravel apace. Based on the Roman myth of Verginia, the play shows the limitless excess of the aristocracy and the will of the people to resist. Lessing's tragedy showed how frivolous cause can lead to harrowing effect, and shone a light on European Royal autocracy.
