Betrothal in a Monastery

20th & 21st January 2012

Location:  Theatre Royal

Tickets:  £19 – £22

Based on Sherdian’s play The Duenna, this whimsical comedy celebrates all that is young love. A girl, a boy, a fish merchant, drunken monks and a whole load of mistaken identities…

Now in its seventh successful year, Scottish Opera’s ambitious Winter collaboration with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (previously known as the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama) is an important opportunity not only for us to offer a broader repertoire for our audiences, but also to provide support, encouragement and hands-on experience for students at the start of their professional careers.

Our work together continues with our third Prokofiev opera and will feature singers from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s opera programme performing with The Orchestra of Scottish Opera, who also act as mentors for the Conservatoire’s young musicians. Scottish Opera’s senior specialist artisans and technicians work with the student costume makers, set builders and lighting and stage technicians throughout the process of creating this production.
