Scottish Opera’s hugely popular Opera Highlights tour kicks off in September, travelling to smaller, more remote venues the length and breadth of Scotland.

Head of Music Derek Clark has once again curated an extremely varied programme including favourites from Rossini’s Barber of Seville, Mozart’s Così fan tutte and Gilbert and Sullivan's The Gondoliers, as well as lesser known gems rarely performed on the Scottish stage.

Opera Highlights will also feature the world premiere of a work created especially for the tour by Scottish Opera’s new Emerging Artist Composer in Residence Samuel Bordoli. With something for everyone, from opera first timers to seasoned fans, Opera Highlights promises an intimate performance of great music.

This year’s cast is full of fresh new talent including Scottish Opera Emerging Artist baritone Alexey Gusev and three recent graduates of the National Opera Studio: soprano Lucy Hall, mezzo-soprano Kate Howden and tenor William Morgan. Elizabeth Rowe accompanies the four talented young singers on piano and former Scottish Opera Emerging Artist Jack Furness (Opera Highlights 2016) makes a welcome return to the Company to direct.

his Season, Scottish Opera’s Opera Highlights tour will be travelling around Scotland twice. The Autumn leg of the tour will be followed by a further 14-date tour in Spring 2018, with a brand new cast aboard the trusty minibus. More details will be available on the Scottish Opera website in the coming months.
