Arias will accompany ground-breaking green energy production when Byre Opera performs at the University’s biomass plant within the Eden Campus Energy Centre Guardbridge.
The plant’s industrial setting will provide a unique backdrop for two short contrasting operas – Vaughan Williams tragic operatic tale Riders to the Sea and the European premier of Madeleine Dring’s dark comic opera Cupboard Love. A cast made up of students and recent graduates will perform the operas, both to be sung in English, in the large open space of the plant. The productions will be in the hands of a dynamic and imaginative professional team of theatre industry creatives.
Byre Opera was formed in 2008 to provide stage experience for students, with guidance from performing arts professionals, while offering high-quality operatic performances to audiences. The company performs in St Andrews every summer, before touring.
Tickets priced £16 (general admission); £14 (concessions & Music Centre Members); and £10 (students, U26) are available from the Byre Box Office on 01334 475 000 or online. Interval refreshments will be available.
Onsite parking available; easy access by Stagecoach 99 bus St Andrews route.
