Opera Bohemia, Scotland’s dynamic professional company, is coming to Easterbrook Hall this Friday with its critically acclaimed new production of Puccini’s one act comic gem, Gianni Schicchi.
The company, formed in 2010, has performed at over 20 venues across Scotland with recent highlights including the first opera at the new Beacon Arts Centre Theatre (Greenock) and an invitation to perform Madame Butterfly in London.
A stellar cast includes BBC Kiri Prize winner Shuna Sendall, Scottish Opera Emerging Artist Andrew McTaggart and Scottish favourite Alan Watt.
Tom Cooper offers a wealth of theatrical and operatic directing experience to bring this intimate production to life.
Guaranteeing an evening of laughter and beautiful music (including one of opera’s favourite arias ‘O mio babbino caro’), Gianni Schicchi is perfect for opera newbies and regular goers alike.
Get along and see how far the Donati family will go to secure their fortune! Sung in Italian with English surtitles. Performance length one hour.
