Opera Scotland


Edinburgh Festival programme announced

Posted 14 Mar 2012

James MacMillan's opera Clemency (pictured) is perhaps the operatic highlight of the 2012 Edinburgh International Festival.  To be performed by Scottish Opera, it joins three new works commissioned as part of a plan to explore what opera means in the 21st century, and to mark the fiftieth anniverary of the founding of our national company.  Others to be heard include The Lady from the Sea (composer Craig Armstrong), In the Locked Room (composer Huw Watkins) and Ghost Patrol (composer Stuart Macrae) - the last two co-commissioned and co-produced between Scottish Opera and Music Theatre Wales  Click through the links to learn more - our entries will be developed shortly.

New productions of The Makropulos Case by Opera North and of Charpentier's David et Jonathas by Les Arts Florissants will also be staged in the Festival Theatre.  There are also to be two concert performances in the Usher Hall, one of Tristan und Isolde by Welsh National Opera and one of Purcell's King Arthur from the Sixteen/
