Scottish Opera Pop-up Opera Tour - A Little Bit of Iolanthe, The Mikado and The Gondoliers

About Scottish Opera Pop-up Opera Tour - A Little Bit of Iolanthe, The Mikado and The Gondoliers

Experience all the drama and wonder of grand opera on a miniature scale, with intimate open-air performances brought to life by a storyteller, two singers, instrumentalists – and a sumptuous set of specially created illustrations.

Immerse yourself in pint-sized versions of HMS Pinafore, The Gondoliers , Iolanthe, The Mikado and Pirates of Penzance, which take you on an unforgettable journey through the operas’ musical and dramatic highlights – in just 30 minutes each. Packed with screwball humour, memorable characters, and of course brilliant tongue-twisting tunes, these mini operas are perfect for audiences of all ages.

Safety for all audience members, performers and technical staff has been built into all three productions from the very start. Physical distancing and other safety measures will be observed at all times, with no compromise on your protection – or on your spellbinding operatic experience.

All performances are being produced in line with Scottish Government guidelines. Live outdoor events are subject to social distancing measures and guidelines at the time of performance.
