Scottish Opera's Highlights tour is a long-running institution which marks the approach of spring by taking four singers and a pianist on a gruelling tour of those parts of the country remote from mainstage opera. Derek Clark, the company's Head of Music, always compiles a fascinating programme with a blend of the familiar and the unknown. Extracts range through Handel, Mozart, Puccini, Sullivan and others, including a new piece by Lliam Paterson on the theme of Bluebeard.

The group will play in fifteen far-flung venues from 14 February to 18 March. Audience members often travel long distances even to reach these places. and the performers have the opportunity to visit remote parts of the country they may never see again.

All venues can be booked online through scottishopera.org or via the individual venues.
