Continuing to mark its 60th anniversary, Scottish Opera takes to the road from the Borders to the Highlands and Islands with their popular Opera Highlights (14th Feb – 25th Mar). The playlist for four singers and a pianist on the theme of love includes selections from Mozart’s The Magic Flute and The Marriage of Figaro, Beethoven’s Fidelio, Verdi’s Macbeth and Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers alongside music by Rimsky-Korsakov, Gounod and a composition written by Mendelssohn when he was just 12 years old. The production also features the world premiere of Told By An Idiot, a reworking of Macbeth by Scottish Opera’s 2021/22 Emerging Artist and composer Toby Hession, with libretto by Emma Jenkins.
