(In prep)

After a gap of a couple of seasons, it was good to welcome Ellen Kent's production company back to Scotland, in harness with a new co-producing partner, Senbla. In Scotland there were only five performances in total, all of Puccini's perennial favourites. La bohème  and Madama Butterfly.    The latter alone opened proceedings in Dundee, with both works then seen in Edinburgh and Glasgow.


The spring 2020 tour itinerary

The tour opened in Manchester on Tuesday, 21 January, closing in Dublin on Sunday, 12 April.  The number of performances totalled  69 in all, including 40 of Madama Butterfly and 29 of La bohème.  The geographical spread was, as usual, ambitious, if not exhausting, zigzagging from the south of England (Dartford, Brighton, Guildford, Basingstoke, Crawley, Hastings, Portsmouth, Bournemouth); to the South-West (Torquay); London surrounds (Bromley, Richmond, High Wycombe, Wimbledon); East (Ipswich, Southend, King's Lynn);  West (Bath, Malvern, Oxford, Aylesbury, Reading);  North (York, Sunderland, Southport, Blackpool, Manchester, Bradford, Sheffield, Hull)  and Midlands (Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Stoke, Leicester).  There were three venues in Wales (Cardiff, Swansea, Rhyl); as well as Scotland (Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee) and two in Ireland (Limerick, Dublin)  While several venues saw both operas, a lot just saw one.
