Read more about the opera Ernani

Only a quarter-century since its appearance, the gloriously melodic Ernani was enjoying its last phase of real popularity before disappearing from the repertoire for nearly a century. These performances were probably the work's first north of the central belt, and certainly in Aberdeen.
