Elisir d'amore 2015Edinburgh Grand Opera

Read more about the opera Elixir of Love

Edinburgh Grand Opera moved to the delightfully intimate Church Hill Theatre for this production of Donizetti's charming bucolic comedy. Linchpin of the cast was veteran bass-baritone Ivor Klayman, supported by a more recently recruited company regular in Angela Estrada. The young principals were ideally cast with three of the most promising recent graduates of the Conservatoire - the fact that these include a Brazilian and a Russian speaks volumes for the reputation of that body, and it is good to see that they are willing and able to further their experience by working with companies like EGO.

It is also good to see that Scottish Opera gives encouragement, not just technically, but also by providing a base for conductor Susannah Wapshott (Scottish Opera's chorus master) as well as director and choreographer Kally Lloyd-Jones.
