Opera Scotland

New in September

Posted 4 Oct 2017

We have continued to add details of the Carl Rosa Scottish tour in Spring 1923. Over ten weeks the company visited six centres and performed 22 operas. Last month we mentioned six of them - here is the complete list:

Aida; Bohemian Girl; Carmen; Cavalleria Rusticana;  
Daughter of the Regiment; Faust; Lily of Killarney; Lohengrin;

Madam Butterfly; Maritana; Marriage of Figaro; Masked Ball;

Mastersingers; Mignon; Pagliacci; Rigoletto; Samson and Delilah;

Tales of Hoffmann; Tannhauser; Thais and Talmaae; Tristan and Isolde; Trovatore.
We plan to post details for the remaining performances of Carl Rosa Opera over the next year before moving on to other historic companies. Firstly we are tackiling the remainder of the years from 1900 to 1923 when the company was managed by the van Noordens.
More productions during 2017 include the Ryedale Finta Giardiniera and two more small-scale stagings - Boheme, by Heritage and Boheme by Opera Bohemia.
The Carl Rosa Trust has undertaken to produce a history of the Carl Rosa Opera. Iain Fraser of OperaScotland has agreed to contribute a chapter on Rosa himself and all at  OperaScotland generally are to collaborateby contributing information. If anyone reading this is able to help, we'd welcome your contribution.
