Read more about the opera General

The evening launched The Royal College of Physicians as a venue for classical music and included excerpts from some of the world’s best loved operas, performed by four hand-selected opera singers from around the country.  

What makes this concert unique? The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh opened its doors for the first time to showcase 19th century opera against stunning architecture.  Although the pieces performed were from popular operas, the music selected broke away from the traditional repertoire commonly chosen and performed during classical concerts, providing intrigue and broadening the ear of the opera lover. 

Tickets were £20 plus and refreshments were available for purchase.
