Each year, Opera Highlights takes four singers out and about around Scotland, travelling the highways and byways by land, air and sea, to bring a musical mix of operatic treasures to venues the length and breadth of the country. 

This Spring, Opera Highlights is visiting 17 venues across Scotland following a successful tour in Autumn 2019.  The show is packed with operatic classics and must-hear rarities, once again curated by Scottish Opera's Head of Music Derek Clark. Mozart, Rossini and Donizetti rub shoulders with Gilbert & Sullivan and a new piece by Scottish Opera Composer in Residence Samuel Bordoli.

Roxana Haines (Edgar 2018) directs a cast of fresh new talent, including baritone Arthur Bruce, a former member of Scottish Opera Young Company, who also recently graduated from the RCS Opera School.

'A splendid evening, beautiful music with verve and humour. And on our doorstep! I'd go again at the drop of a hat.' Audience member 2018
