Marie Antoinette Deleted Scene: Second Opera
This opera scene came after Marie Antoinette has become Queen and thinks everyone just loves her and she’s sharing some German opera with the people of France. We took this scene out because it felt like one opera too many and losing it made the other two opera scenes stronger and contrast more, her first opera where the people in the city are so taken with her and applaud her and then the last one where they’ve turned on her, and she sees for the first time that they don’t adore her.

So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.” — The Staying Philosophy (Everyday Isa)
