Tim Dean on La rondine

Posted 4 May

OperaScotland recently had the chance to interview Tim Dean, Head of Opera at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. We asked him then about the unusual choice of Puccini's La rondine for the RCS production this month.

If the growing number of performances across the world is any indication, Puccini's opera is now winning belated recognition. This RCS production is the first time the work has ever been given in Scotland's central belt - in fact, there has been only one previous chance to see it in Scotland.  Opera North (Rondine, 2006) took their production to Aberdeen when Janis Kelly played Magda.

Listen to what Tim says about La Rondine below.

Do you think you've never heard any of the music? Listen to a clip with Angela Gheorghiu here and then watch this flashmob.
