Read more about the opera Sonnambula

La sonnambula was still a highly popular item in the operatic repertoire.  It still seems questionable whether it was an entirely suitable choice for performance before a Saturday night audience in Aberdeen.  The following Saturday, in Dundee, it was scheduled once more, but the programme was changed, and Don Giovanni substituted.

No cast details available as yet.
