The 1987/88 season of Scottish Opera featured ten main stage productions. Six of these were new: Aïda, Lulu, The Pearl Fishers, Così fan tutte, La bohème and Candide. The four revivals were Seraglio, La vie Parisienne, Eugene Onegin (sung in Russian for the first time) and Death in Venice. The stylishly simple black, white and silver programme cover introduced for the season was highly attractive, but the idea was not repeated.

The excellent staging from 1983, a co-production with Geneva, was just as good at this revival, with Philip Langridge and Jonathan Summers both in majestic form. A good number of the company's regular small role performers were still available from five years earlier.
