We are delighted to announce a busy 2022 Spring and Summer, with a new production of Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in February, directed by Dominic Hill of Citizens Theatre, a revival of Sir Thomas Allen’s production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni in May, and Opera in Concert performances of Rachmaninov’s The Miserly Knight and Stravinsky’s Mavra in March, conducted by Scottish Opera Music Director, Stuart Stratford.
Audiences can also look forward to two Emerging Artists recitals in St Andrews and Glasgow in November, a new Opera Highlights production directed by John Savournin, touring to 18 venues across Scotland from February, and a National Opera Studio performance at Theatre Royal Glasgow in the same month.
This exciting programme follows on from the previously announced performances of The Gondoliers and Utopia, Limited, The Puccini Collection concert and the Company’s Outreach and Education productions of Mister MacNeep Has Lost His Sheep and The Last Aliens.
Alex Reedijk, Scottish Opera General Director, said: ‘We are delighted to present a great array of operatic works over the next six months, including full-scale shows brought to the stage by brilliant directors, Dominic Hill and Sir Thomas Allen, as well as two concert performances, expertly curated by Stuart Stratford, and wonderful Outreach and Education projects for children of all ages. This is as well as a commitment to Opera Highlights, with 18 venues being announced over the winter. I really do hope you can join us for what promises to be a fascinating and entertaining collection of live performances across Scotland.’
