Doctors in Opera

Posted 15 Dec 2012

Everyone who has heard Ian Robertson's irreverent and amusing talks on Doctors in Opera will welcome the appearance in print of his mischievous survey of over 100 operatic medicos.

Dr Robertson, a former Professor of Medicine, and a member of the board of directors of Scottish Opera from 1999 to 2008, is well placed to analyse their surprisingly numerous operatic appearances.

Read about GPs, imposters, psychiatrists, surgeons, ophthalmologists, cardiologists - even a canine doctor - in works from Dittersdorf to Turnage, via Mozart, Verdi, Prokofiev, Britten, Maxwell Davies and many more. 

The book, priced at £12.99, is attractively produced and is available from Scottish Opera.
