About Scottish Opera Pop-up

Part of Callander & Trossachs Summerfest 2019

Scottish Opera’s Pop-Up Opera is back on the road with three brilliant shows. Performed in a specially-adapted trailer, each 20-minute performance is brought to life by a storyteller, two singers, musicians and a series of colourful illustrations. A Little Bit of Magic Flute and A Little Bit of Iolanthe are cleverly re-written 20-minute versions of the full operas, while Puffy McPuffer and the Crabbit Canals has been created specifically for 5 to 8 year olds.

Puffy McPuffer and the Crabbit Canals 12 noon
A tale of the five waterways that link Scotland from the North Sea to the Atlantic. Like most families, each one is different: Caledonian, the longest; Crinan, the most beautiful; Monklands, hard-working; Union, the fastest; Forth & Clyde, the wisest. Each one thinks they’re the best. Can an ordinary little puffer boat make them think again? Music Marion Christie, words Allan Dunn.
For 5-8-year-olds

A Little Bit of Iolanthe 2pm
Iolanthe is banished by the Fairy Queen for marrying a mortal. Now, 25 years later, two worlds again collide when her son announces he is in love. Unfortunately, his beloved is a popular girl and he has some serious competition… Light-hearted satire at its best, Iolanthe is full of fun. Gilbert & Sullivan (arrangement by Derek Clark).
Suitable for all ages

A Little Bit of The Magic Flute 3.30pm
Tamino is in love with Pamina, the daughter of the mysterious Queen of the Night. When she is abducted, he sets off to rescue her but soon realises all is not quite as it seems. A beguiling mix of comedy, fantasy and pantomime, The Magic Flute is also a profound story of the search for love, wisdom and truth. Mozart (arrangement by Derek Clark).
Suitable for all ages
