Read more about the opera Zanetto

Zanetto was initially intended as an attempt to provide a romantic companion piece for Cavalleria Rusticana, and employed the same librettists,  However Holland Park paired it with the ever-popular Gianni Schicchi

Scottish Opera will perform it with another rare two-hander, Susanna's Secret.

The season opened at the Edinburgh International Festival with the European premiere of Breaking the Waves by Missy Mazzoli. The autumn performances got under way with a visit to the Lammermuir Festival on 20 September with a single performance in concert of an unusual double bill - Mascagni's Zanetto and Wolf-Ferrari's Susanna's Secret. The Glasgow season opens with a welcome revival of Tosca. There is a Sunday afternoon concert of Iris, another rare work by Mascagni.
