Scottish Opera: Anthropocene

About Scottish Opera: Anthropocene

In the frozen Arctic wastelands, an expeditionary team of scientists becomes trapped. Tensions rise and relationships crumble; and then something appears, out of the ice…

This fourth collaboration between composer Stuart MacRae and librettist Louise Welsh, a hugely successful partnership initially born of Five:15 – Operas Made in Scotland, promises a night of unrelenting dramatic tension and superb storytelling. Director Matthew Richardson once again teams up with designer Samal Blak to bring MacRae and Welsh’s work to the stage. They are joined by a superb ensemble cast including former Scottish Opera Emerging Artist Jennifer France (Ariadne auf Naxos 2018), fast making a name for herself as a contemporary music specialist, Scottish soprano Jeni Bern and Stephen Gadd (Flight 2018). Stuart Stratford conducts.

Touch tours can be booked alongside the audio-described performance. Touch Tours give our patrons who are visually impaired the opportunity to go onstage and touch parts of the set and any major pieces of scenery, props and costumes. To book a free space call our Access Booking Line on 0800 912 6971.
