As we return to live opera, we're very happy to be able to provide audio description at a number of our performances of Falstaff this Summer, including performances in both Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Mention opera and most people think of singing and music - but this is only part of the overall experience. What about scenery, costumes, lighting, direction and choreography? Audio-description helps visually-impaired patrons enjoy the opera experience with a live commentary that describes the action on stage without compromising the music.
If you book an audio-described ticket for Falstaff, you will have access to live commentary throughout the show via a discreet headset. Before the performance, you will also be able to listen to a specially-created audio introduction to the production, including details of the set, costumes and props.
You can book audio described tickets for the relevant performances via the Falstaff webpage: www.scottishopera.org.uk/shows/falstaff. When you arrive at your chosen performance please make yourself known to a member of the Front of House team and they will provide you with your audio description headset. Guide dogs are welcome at both our Glasgow and Edinburgh venues.
