We are delighted to announce that Eden Court Cinema in Inverness will host advance screenings of our latest digital production, a semi-staged performance of Mozart’s Così fan tutte.
We are excited to unveil a programme of digital and live performance as part of our Winter 2020/21 activity, including filmed productions of Così Fan Tutte and Hansel and Gretel, and a live performance from Scottish Opera’s Young Company as part of our Outreach and Education department's 50th Anniversary.
Scottish Opera looks back to 1978, and an iconic production of Dido & Aeneas featuring Dame Janet Baker
Scottish Opera rewinds to 1978 – taking a closer look at a much-loved production of Dido & Aeneas, starring mezzo-soprano Dame Janet Baker. STV has opened up their archive to give audiences a rare chance to watch Another Opening, Another Show – a documentary that followed the production as it toured to Aix-en-Provence. The exclusive content also includes a new interview with Dame Janet herself.
We are thrilled to have been nominated at the Royal Philharmonic Society Awards in the Opera and Theatre Category for our production of Nixon in China earlier this year.
While an Autumn tour of Opera Highlights usually sees four singers and a pianist travelling the length and breadth of Scotland, this year’s online production is a celebration of opera, music and performance in the time of social distancing. The digital production, filmed in the theatre of The Beacon Arts Centre, Greenock, will be available to audiences across Scotland and beyond on Scottish Opera’s website on Sunday 25 October at 6pm, which coincides with World Opera Day.
