Announcement of Scottish Opera's 2011-12 season

Posted 25 May 2011

Scotland's national company has today announced its programme for next season. It includes eight new shows, two classic revivals, six collaborations and 105 performances in 43 venues over the next twelve months.

The season begins with Kurt Weill's Seven Deadly Sins in a co-production with Company Chordelia, quickly followed by Mark-Anthony Turnage's Greek with Music Theatre Wales and the Traverse. Sir Thomas Allen returns to direct a revival of his production of Barber of Seville. In the autumn, Orpheus in the Underworld tours in a co-production with Northern Ireland Opera (in a new Rory Bremner translation)  to eighteen communities throughout Scotland with both piano-accompanied and chamber orchestra accompanied performances. Opera Highlights will once again tour to 15 of Scotland's smaller venues.

The winter months will see Prokofiev's whacky comedy Betrothal in a Monastery in conjunction with RSAMD, and a new production of Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel, directed by Bill Bankes-Jones.

The spring sees David McVicar directing a new production of Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress, and the season finishes with the return of a much loved production - Puccini's Tosca originally directed by Anthony Besch, most recently performed by Boston Lyric Opera.
