Scottish Opera - The French Collection

Scottish Opera - The French Collection  Image
French opera contains a vast variety of musical and dramatic styles as its artists pushed boundaries on stage and in the pit. Join us for a night of romance, drama and beautiful music to remember.

Celebrating the innovation and creativity in opera during the 19th and early 20th century in Paris, this concert includes excerpts from some of the era’s grandest and most beloved operas as well as its rarer gems, including excerpts from Les pecheurs de perles by Georges Bizet, Faust by Charles Gounod, Werther by Jules Massenet, and Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saens.

The Orchestra of Scottish Opera captures the vivacity and grandeur of this uniquely brilliant musical epoch under the baton of the Company’s Music Director Stuart Stratford. The first-rate group of singers includes mezzo-soprano Catriona Morison (Cardiff Singer of the World 2017) who last performed with us at the 50th Perth Festival of the Arts opening gala concert in 2022, tenor Alok Kumar who was Don José in our 2023 production of Bizet's Carmen, and soprano Alexandra Lowe and bass-baritone Callum Thorpe both making their Company debuts.
