Read more about the opera Eugene Onegin

The 2017/18 season of Scottish Opera opens at the Edinburgh International Festival with a new production of Greek, the modern classic by Mark-Antony Turnage, which had its British premiere at the 1988 Festival. It re-appears in Glasgow later on. The main season begins with a welcome and overdue revival of Sir David McVicar's powerful production of La traviata. In the New Year there are new productions of another successful recent piece, Flight (Jonathan Dove) as well as Ariadne auf Naxos and Eugene Onegin. The season ends with a novelty circus tent-style production of Pagliacci. As a follow-up to the four operatic rareties mounted as Sunday concerts in 2016/17, the new subjects are rare Russian operas - Tchaikovsky's Iolanta, Prokofiev's Fiery Angel and a Rachmaninov double bill - Aleko and Francesca da Rimini. The fourth of these concerts is a digest of Russian pieces performed by students from the National Opera Studio under the title From Russia With Love. There will also be the regular Highlights tour round the Highlands and Islands, this time in two phases, autumn and spring.
