Read more about the opera Rita

That rarity, Donizetti's Rita, is being performed by Berwick Festival Opera this weekend. It is to be sung in English in a new translation by Austin Gunn, who sings Beppe. Other performers are Portuguese baritone Job Tome and Polish-Scottish soprano Natasha Day.

The orchestration for piano quintet is by Matthew Rooke.

Total running time is 1.5 hours, so there is plenty of time to get the train back to Edinburgh or Glasgow!
