Opera Highlights

Scottish Opera’s popular Opera Highlights tour
is back – and we’re going behind the scenes!


Members of Scottish Opera are packing up their costumes to travel the length and breadth of Scotland, bringing favourites from their repertoire to remote venues.

The cast have kindly agreed to provide on-tour blogs for us, and we’ll be posting one live every Tuesday until the end of the tour.
