The Scottish Opera Syndicate

Members of The Scottish Opera Syndicate are a group of supporters who have made a major financial commitment to help the Company put more opera on the stage. In return they enjoy a very personal relationship with us.


In 2007, the Syndicate supported a hugely successful new production of Il barbiere di Siviglia, directed by Sir Thomas Allen and designed by Simon Higlett. 


With their continued financial backing, we were able to create an additional major production, in partnership with the 2008 Edinburgh International Festival, of Smetana’s The Two Widows. Since then, their support has enabled us to stage new productions of Rossini’s riotous The Italian Girl in Algiers, an unforgettable telling of Stravisky’s The Rake’s Progress, directed by Sir David McVicar and Mozart's The Magic Flute.


We are delighted that the Scottish Opera Syndicate is supporting a new production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni with direction from Sir Thomas Allen, design by Simon Higlett and lighting design by Mark Jonathan. 

Scottish Opera is keen to attract new Syndicate members. For an informal discussion, please call Nicola Smith on 0141 242 0598 or email
