A NEW production of Opera Highlights can been seen in Musselburgh as part of a tour of Scotland.

A troupe of singers perform in this one-of-a-kind show, created specifically for Scottish Opera each season.

They will appear at Loretto School Theatre on Saturday, October 28.

Mezzo-soprano Katherine Aitken and baritone Jerome Knox return to the stage for the performance, while soprano Katy Thomson and tenor Innocent Masuku make their company debuts.

Accompanying them on piano is music director Toby Hession, a former Scottish Opera Emerging Artist. Directed by Laura Attridge, designs are by Ana Inés Jabares-Pita.

The playlist, devised by Scottish Opera’s former head of music Derek Clark, combines a collection of much-loved classics with a treasure trove of lesser-known pieces. These include music from Verdi’s La Traviata, Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Puccini’s La Bohème, Arthur Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, alongside works by Kurt Weill and William Walton. Audiences also have the chance to hear Toby Hession playing the world premiere of his short opera, In Flagrante.

Opera Highlights is supported by Friends of Scottish Opera, JTH Charitable Trust and The Scottish Opera Endowment Trust.
