Opera Highlights is back on the road, with a new production directed by Sara Brodie.

Four talented singers and a pianist will travel to 18 venues around Scotland, including Craignish Village Hall.

The show on February 12 will be an expertly curated selection of music celebrating the best of opera, including works from Carmen, Don Giovanni and Die Fledermaus, and some lesser-known pieces from some of the world’s greatest composers including Offenbach and Tchaikovsky.

Scottish mezzo Heather Ireson, baritone Harry Thatcher, Samling Young, artist Tom Smith and Lucy Anderson, a Scottish Opera Emerging Artist 2018/19, form the wonderful British cast. Elizabeth Rowe of Opera Highlights 2017 returns as music director and pianist.

Whether you are new to opera, or you are a seasoned fan, Opera Highlights offers a perfect evening’s entertainment.
