THIS September Scottish Opera’s nationwide Opera Highlights Tour will travel to small, remote locations the length and breadth of Scotland. 

The Opera Highlights tour kicks off with four singers and a pianist journeying to 17 venues across the country, from Wick in the north to Dumfries in the south, as well as the Inner and Outer Hebrides.

The Autumn tour begins on 20 September in Giffnock before heading to Ayr, Drumnadrochit, Wick, Forres, Ullapool, Stornoway, Portree, Lanark, Helensburgh, Dundee, Inverurie, Laurencekirk, Perth, Dumfries, Musselburgh and St Andrews.

Scottish Opera’s Head of Music Derek Clark has curated a varied programme featuring operatic playlists from much-loved and lesser known composers, including favourites from Mozart and Donizetti linked by new compositions by Scottish Opera Composer in Residence Samuel Bordoli.

Director Daisy Evans said: “This evening of opera highlights conjures drama as the singers take us on a wild journey through betrayal, pain, misplaced love and home truths, revealing the intense world of opera piece by piece.”

Scottish Opera’s General Director, Alex Reedijk, said: “Touring Scotland has been at the heart of what we do for over 30 years and Opera Highlights is the perfect show to take to smaller and more remote communities around the country as it truly has something for everyone. This combination of wonderful music from across the world of opera, terrific voices and a creative staging by Daisy Evans will ensure that our audiences will have an enjoyable night out!”
