Autumn 2017Opera Highlights
Touring to 17 venues across Scotland
This year team Opera Highlights is on a mission. Equipped with a piano, a suitcase full of music and a sense of adventure, the team are ready for a journey of operatic proportions. Our four talented young singers and accomplished pianist are travelling the length and breadth of the country to bring you an unforgettable night at the opera.
Come September, they’ll be packing their bags full of props and costumes to stage an evening of music that will brighten even the darkest Autumn night. There’s something for everyone – from opera first timers to seasoned fans. The programme includes favourites from Rossini’s Barber of Seville, Mozart’s Così fan tutte and Gilbert & Sullivan's The Gondoliers alongside some lesser known gems rarely performed on the Scottish stage.
‘‘Amazing energy from all five performers – to be able to get that close to professional musicians and singers is a rare treat. Can’t wait for more!"Audience Member 2016
This year’s cast is full of fresh new talent including Scottish Opera Emerging Artist Alexey Gusev and three recent graduates of the National Opera Studio. Elizabeth Rowe is at the piano and Jack Furness (Opera Highlights 2016) directs.
Join us for a guaranteed great night of music, laughter and good company.
This year you’ve got even more opportunities to enjoy a night out at the opera as we will be touring to more venues than ever before. The trusty Opera Highlights minibus will be travelling around Scotland twice this season. The first leg of the tour kicks off this Autumn, and will be followed by a further 14 dates in the Spring. Keep an eye on the website for more information on our Spring tour in the coming months.
