Rossini’s

La scala di seta

CONCERT PERFORMANCE

Part of The Sunday Series: Opera in Concert

Without her master knowing, Giulia has married. Every night her secret husband climbs up a silken ladder to her window. All is blissful, until she is introduced to her new fiancé... Things are about to get tricky!

An early work by Rossini, La scala di seta was written when the Italian Master was just 18 years old. Regarded by many as his first masterpiece, this one-act opera is full of fun. Conducted by Rossini expert David Parry.

Curated by Music Director Stuart Stratford, The Sunday Series: Opera in Concert puts the spotlight on early and lesser-known works by opera’s biggest names. Join The Orchestra of Scottish Opera and some world-class guest singers for drama, emotion, romance and, most importantly, great music.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles
