Read more about the opera Seraglio

The 1987/88 season of Scottish Opera featured ten main stage productions. Six of these were new: Aïda, Lulu, The Pearl Fishers, Così fan tutte, La bohème and Candide. The four revivals were Seraglio, La vie Parisienne, Eugene Onegin (sung in Russian for the first time) and Death in Venice. The stylishly simple black, white and silver programme cover introduced for the season was highly attractive, but the idea was not repeated.

The final revival of David Pountney’s lively production still seemed very fresh in spite of the number of performances it had received.The elegant designs had also worn well.
