Dream of Gerontius 1986Edinburgh International Festival

Read more about the opera Dream of Gerontius

By 1986 it was clear that the relationship between Simon Rattle and the Birmingham orchestra was rather special, and that year saw them in what amounted to a residency in Edinburgh. Dame Janet had retired from the strains of fully-staged opera in 1982 and had made it known that even her concert career would end fairly soon. Every performance by her was therefore to be treasured, and this was her last year at the Festival. She returned to Scotland in December for a final tour with the SCO as Purcell's Dido. The men were also nearing the end of their singing careers, but still on excellent form.
