We’re hitting the road this February on a whistle-stop tour around the country to bring you a musical mix of opera highlights. Our bags are packed and bursting with colourful costumes and props to brighten those winter nights. Jump aboard and enjoy an entertaining night-out, filled with energy, versatility and plenty of humour.  

Whether you’re new to opera or a seasoned fan, there’s sure to be something for you, be it a tune you’re discovering for the first time or an old favourite you’ll be humming all the way home.

 

“Even my non-opera-loving husband enjoyed the evening! It was a treat for those of us who live so far away from large theatres to appreciate such a well-produced evening.”

Audience member, 2016

 

This year’s cast is full of fresh new talent, including two Scottish Opera Emerging Artists and two recent graduates of the National Opera Studio. Former Emerging Artist repetiteur Jonathon Swinard returns to the piano and current Emerging Artist director Jim Manganello is at the helm. 

Join them as they set off on an unforgettable journey featuring music by Mozart, Handel, Puccini, Gilbert & Sullivan and many more.
