Read more about the opera Full Circle

The first production of Full Circle had only had three performances in Perth. This new staging had opened with a couple of performances during the Christmas season in Edinburgh (teamed with The Soldier's Tale). It was revived for seven performances in the spring season (this being a joint season with Scottish Theatre Ballet, it was now teamed with two ballets, a new work, Breakaway, by Gillian Lynne, and a Danish classic from 1856, Bournonville's La Ventana). Three of these performances were matinees. A final batch of ten performances of Full Circle appeared at the Festival Fringe in a late-night double bill with a second work sponsored and televised by STV, a ribald comedy by John Purser, The Undertaker, which was deliberately commissioned as a companion-piece. Many of the roles had been recast since the premiere, but William Elvin and Sheila McGrow remained central to its success.
