Scottish Amicable Suggest updates

This insurance company was one of those great Scottish business institutions than no longer exist, and whose contributions to support the arts are so sadly missed.

Scottish Amicable, with its headquarters in Stirling - a large estate on a tree-shrouded hill overlooking the A9 - were an important provider of sponsorship funding. Between 1978 and 1995 they subsidised several productions - a Rossini double bill (The Marriage Contract & The Silken LadderThe Bartered Bride by Smetana; and a series of four memorable Puccini stagings - ToscaManon Lescaut, Madama Butterfly and Turandot.
