Read more about the opera Uthal

It is disappointing that  such an interesting opera based on an important Scottish literary source should be so little known, and only now receiving its Scottish premiere. While Méhul's work is no masterpiece, the main reason must be the total neglect into which the Ossian works of Macpherson have fallen, especially in his native land. Surely he is long overdue for programming and assessment.
