Scottish Opera presents digital Opera Highlights production on World Opera Day

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.
