The spring 2017 tour by the Ellen Kent organization, presented by Opera and Ballet International, as usual consists of three works. The repertoire is generally popular, with mainstream Puccini (La bohème) and Verdi (Aïda) both seen frequently in the past. The one rarity, doubly welcome as it has never yet been presented either by the Edinburgh Festival or Scottish Opera, is Verdi's first masterpiece, Nabucco.
Edinburgh gets all three, while Dundee, which will not be seeing Scottish Opera's new staging in May, just has the Puccini. Glasgow sees the two most popular pieces.
The schedule for the Scottish week is: Mon 27 Mar Glasgow Bohème; Tue 28 Mar Glasgow Aïda; Thu 30 Mar Edinburgh Bohème; Fri 31 Mar Edinburgh Nabucco; Sat 1 Apr Edinburgh Aïda; Sun 2 Apr Dundee Bohème.
