We are thrilled to be heading to Dundee’s Caird Hall on Sunday 12 December, for The Puccini Collection concert, which features favourite arias, ensembles and orchestral interludes from Giacomo Puccini’s timeless operas.
Our Music Director, Stuart Stratford, conducts soloists Roland Wood (Falstaff 2021), Sinéad Campbell-Wallace (Tosca 2019), David Junghoon Kim (making his Company debut), and Scottish Opera Emerging Artist 2021/22 Catriona Hewitson (Così fan tutte 2021). They will be accompanied on stage by the Orchestra of Scottish Opera.
Featuring excerpts from well-known and well-loved works including Tosca ‘(‘Vissi d’arte’), Turandot (‘Nessun Dorma’) and La bohème, as well as rarer gems from La Fanciulla del West, Manon Lescaut, and Edgar, there is plenty for newcomers and aficionados alike.
Scottish Opera Music Director, Stuart Stratford said: ‘There is a reason why Puccini is one of the greatest opera composers - sumptuous harmony supporting memorable melodic lines, all steeped in the character and situation of the most moving stories. The Puccini Collection contains some of the most breathtaking spans of operatic writing in the repertoire not to be missed.’
Tickets are on sale from 12 October at Dundee Box Office, priced £27 / £21 with £10 for Under 26s, and can be booked here www.scottishopera.org.uk/shows/the-puccini-collection/
