Read more about the opera Serse

This study day on Handel's Opera, Xerxes (or Serse to give it its Italian name), lasts from 10am to 3pm at St Andrews Botanic Garden. The participants will move from the Herbarium to the Glasshouse in the community garden during the course of the day.

In association with Music Planet, University researchers and performers involved in Byre Opera's Xerxes offer a stimulating exploration of human interactions with the natural environment and the role of gardens in encouraging biodiversity. The day will include a chance to hear some of the music from the opera, and discussions about the production's engagement with environmental themes.

Admission £3 includes a soup and sandwich lunch.
