Told through dream sequences from the modern day, Cabildo recounts the miraculous escape of Pierre LaFitte, an imprisoned pirate seeking to liberate New Orleans from British colonial rule Romanticism and Creole folk music in a fresh and vibrant harmonic medley. Her only opera, Cabildo was never performed in Amy Beach’s lifetime. As the European premiere and only the fifth time the opera has been performed since it was written over 80 years ago, this performance is an historic milestone in the revival of works by female composers.

Directed/Produced by Charlotte McKechnie and conducted by Gregor Forbes, Cabildo features singers from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Opera School.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Cabildo: A Chamber Opera of Pirates and State Power are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
