Iain, Peter and Stephen Fraser, co-founders of OperaScotland and researchers into Carl Rosa Opera, offer organisations such as Probus and Arts societies the chance to learn about the origin and development of this website and the influential life of Carl Rosa.

Carl Rosa: from ‘juvenile Paganini’ to operatic entrepreneur

Arguably, the man who did most to bring opera to Scotland (and indeed Britain) in the golden age of opera, the late nineteenth century, was Karl Rose.

Roze was a native of Hamburg and by turns a citizen of the USA and finally of Britain. He was active in Britain with Carl Rosa Opera from 1873 until his death in 1889, at the early age of 47.
