The documentary ‘A Symphony in Stone’, scored by former Scottish Opera Composer in Residence Lliam Paterson, premieres at 3pm on June 30 at Glasgow’s Grosvenor Cinema.
Members of The Orchestra of Scottish Opera perform Lliam’s music in the 60-minute film, which forms part of the West End Festival. Commissioned by The Planning Exchange Foundation and made by Production Attic, it aims to celebrate and explain Glasgow’s stunning cityscape and architecture, and is narrated by actor Bill Paterson. Scottish Opera board member, Tony Burton OBE, is Executive Producer.
Lliam was Composer in Residence at Scottish Opera for two Seasons and still works closely with the Company. This August, Fox-tot!, his new opera for toddlers aged 12- 24 months, has its world premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It follows Lliam’s acclaimed opera for babies BambinO, which had sell-out performances at the Fringe, in Paris and at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
