Scottish Opera's fourth season at the Theatre Royal (1978-79) opened with Simon Boccanegra, and continued with Jenůfa, Catiline Conspiracy then an unusual triple-bill of Savitri, Fanny Robin and Dido and Aeneas. Next came Seraglio, Rosenkavalier, Hansel and Gretel, Fledermaus, Midsummer Night's Dream, Bohème, Kátya Kabanová and Rigoletto. In June there followed the company's first staging of a musical, Fiddler on the Roof. Many of these works were also toured.

As with his staging of Savitri which began the evening, Graham Vick achieved much with an absolute minimum of decor, relying largely on atmospheric lighting. The contrast with John Copley's lavish production of Dido and Aeneas afterwards could hardly have been more complete.
