Rodolfo, La boheme - Scottish Opera

September 5, 6, 8, 10, 12 & 13 - Scottish Opera's Production Studio, Glasgow

Scottish Opera celebrates a longed-for return to live, staged opera with the greatest operatic love story ever told.

Director Roxana Haines, designed by Glasgow-based Anna Orton. The staging places a small audience right in the middle of the action, which takes place among and around you – with appropriate physical distancing observed at all times.

Coming together for this La bohème for today are Elizabeth Llewellyn as Mimì and Rhian Lois as Musetta (both making their Scottish Opera debuts), Samuel Sakker (Kátya Kabanová 2019) as Rodolfo and Roland Wood (Tosca 2019, Pelléas et Mélisande 2017) as Marcello, with Scottish Opera Emerging Artist 2019/20 Arthur Bruce as Schaunard. Company Music Director Stuart Stratford conducts a specially selected ensemble from The Orchestra of Scottish Opera.

RAIN CHECKED TO 2021 Des Grieux, Manon Lescaut - The Grange Festival

June 21, 26, 28 and July 5 & 12 - The Grange, Hampshire

Puccini scored his first major success with this tragic depiction of urgent young love. Manon chooses luxury over love and pays the ultimate price. She is pursued across the Atlantic by her soulmate Chevalier Des Grieux and dies in his arms. 

 

Packed with soaring melodies, and infused with raw emotion and a desperate sense of desolation, tears will flow and passions will boil. We are thrilled to present a new production created by the internationally renowned director Stephen Lawless and conducted by Italian star Francesco Cilluffo, returning after his triumphant Falstaff.  
 

2017 Grange Festival International Singing Competition finalist Samuel Sakker sings Des Grieux, and Elain Pritchard returns to The Grange as Manon following her success as Alice in Falstaff in 2018.

RAIN CHECKED Sergeant Thibault, Margot la Rouge - Opera Holland Park

July 21, 23, 25, 29 & 31, Opera Holland Park, London 

 

Delius’s only verismo opera sees the soldier Thibault recognise his first love in a brothel. The girl he once knew as Marguerite is now Margot, and the lover of a pimp. Blending the lyrical beauty for which Delius is famed, with the passion and drive of Italian opera, Margot la Rouge is an intoxicating and gripping drama.
