The 2003-04 season of Scottish Opera was dominated by its opening event. Tim Albery's production of Der Ring des Nibelungen had been assembled during the three previous Edinburgh Festivals. The 2003 Festival was the culmination of this process. After an intensive sequence of two Edinburgh cycles, the company moved on to give two in Glasgow and a final one at the recently opened Lowry at Salford Quays.

For non-Wagnerites, the rest of the season consisted of new productions of The Magic Flute and La bohème with a revival of Aïda. There was an intimate staging of Eugene Onegin - with piano in the autumn and a small band in the spring. The annual Essential Scottish Opera tour of the Highlands and Islands also took place. A distinct novelty was a new piece composed specifically for children - on a larger scale than the company's previous works of this kind, The Minotaur by Julian Evans toured with a small orchestra.

A further batch of performances continuing the run from the previous autumn saw this Flute staging have its last performances on a now rare trip to Liverpool.
