Scottish Opera present Opera Highlights

A troupe of talented singers, including Scottish Opera's 2023/24 Emerging Artists, traverse Scotland to bring an original piano-accompanied production to venues across the country. This vibrant, one-of-a-kind show is created specifically for Scottish Opera each season. Director Laura Attridge (The Miserly Knight and Mavra 2022) brings her signature storytelling to this year's tour and, alongside designer Ana Inés Jabares-Pita, creates an unforgettable experience that adapts to every venue.

Flinging four singers and a pianist into the oh-so-familiar setting of a wedding reception, they explore the highs and lows of love in opera. This year's programme is curated by Derek Clark and includes music from the likes of Mozart, Verdi, Donizetti, and Tchaikovsky, as well as a world premiere by Toby Hession.
