Opera Highlights

Equipped with a piano, a suitcase full of music and a sense of adventure, the Scottish Opera team is ready for a journey of operatic proportions…


Last year Scottish Opera delighted audiences with their Opera Highlights tour, and it was so successful that it’s coming back for a second round!

The taster of opera classics was a great hit with newcomers and die-hard opera fans alike, so in February and March 2018 audiences have the chance to see and hear the opera favourites from brand-new voices.

Rossini’s Barber of Seville, Mozart’s Così fan tutte, and Bernstein’s Candide are hot on the line-up, as well as lesser known gems rarely performed on the Scottish stage.

The cast this year includes original tenor William Morgan; alongside soprano Máire Flavin; mezzo-soprano Catherine Backhouse, who was named Scottish Opera Emerging Artist 2017/18; and baritone Benjamin Lewis.

Each week of the opera’s tour we’ll be hearing from one of the cast and crew members as they make their way around Scotland.
