Scottish Opera returns for another amazing Autumn Opera Highlights Tour across Scotland

Four brilliant singers and a pianist are bringing an engaging, live opera to 17 venues across the country.

Join them as they press ‘play’ on some of opera’s greatest hits, as well as some lesser-known gems.


The cast get colourful in dress rehearsal…


Director Daisy Evans’ Opera Highlights features an operatic playlist from much-loved and in contrast lesser-known composers. It has been curated by Scottish Opera’s Head of Music, Derek Clark, and also includes favourites from Mozart’s The Magic Flute and Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’amore.

As well as the classics, the programme also includes a new work from Scottish Opera Composer in Residence, Samuel Bordoli.

Through music and song, the four singers weave together a tale of one person’s discovery of opera. There’s something for everyone from seasoned fans to opera first timers. Opera Highlights promises a night of entertainment, laughter and good company.

“Touring Scotland has been at the heart of what we do for over 30 years.” said Scottish Opera’s General Director, Alex Reedijk. “Opera Highlights is the perfect show to take to smaller and more remote communities around the country as it truly has something for everyone.

“This combination of wonderful music from across the world of opera, terrific voices and a creative staging by Daisy Evans will ensure that our audiences will have an enjoyable night out!”
