Pop Up Opera | The Crichton Trust

A Little Bit of Barber  – by Giacomo Rossini.

A Little Bit of Figaro  – by W.A. Mozart

Here we bring you the life and adventures,  in two operas by two of the most popular composers in the entire operatic repertoire, of one Master Figaro (Mister Fix it himself !) who, after swopping a freelance career as Seville’s most famous gent’s hairdresser  (The Barber of Seville) for the security of full-time employment as valet to the Count Almaviva, finds himself on the brink of marital bliss with the lovely Susannah (The Marriage of Figaro).

With glorious music and witty, fast moving plots – these two productions can be enjoyed separately or as a double bill – as they’re both based on plays by the comic genius of C18th century French theatre; Moliere.


Be A Sport Spike! By Karen MacIver

This piece was commissioned by Scottish Opera in 2018 to celebrate Glasgow as  the co-host of the first ever European Championship Games.  Mike ‘The Spike’ McTavish is a world class athlete; holding countless records and trophies for every sport you can think of, but when he meets the Grand Diva, he finds that there’s one thing he can’t hold and that’s a tune !  Soon he discovers vocal chords need exercise just like muscles & tendons do so now all he has to do is learn to sing in time to join her in a duet to mark the opening of the Games ceremony ?
