Scottish Opera to stage Madama Butterfly and Don Giovanni
Scottish Opera will stage productions of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly and Mozart’s Don Giovanni in its 2013-14 season.
The company has unveiled details of its forthcoming programme which features 14 shows, including four new productions and a UK premiere.
In the autumn, Sir Thomas Allen and Simon Higlett begin the season with a new production of Don Giovanni conducted by Speranza Scappucci, and in early 2014 Renaud Doucet and Andre Barbe will stage Donizetti’s Don Pasquale conducted by Francesco Corti.
Next May, the opera that launched the company in 1962, Madama Butterfly, returns to mark the re-opening of the Theatre Royal Glasgow.
The show will be conducted by Scottish Opera’s newly-appointed music director Emmanuel Joel-Hornak.
Scottish Opera’s Alex Reedijk said: “I really am proud of the depth of quality we are offering this season.”
