Rosslyn Chapel to host opera in July
Tickets are now on sale for an opera, taking place in Rosslyn Chapel on 2 July 2018, when Raucous Rossini will perform La Scala di Seta.
Raucous Rossini is a vibrant young professional opera company based in Glasgow. For the last four years they have toured around Scotland, England, and Italy, performing to thousands of people. Raucous Rossini have specialised in Rossini one act comedy operas and this year will complete their initial five year ambition of staging the five one act operas that Rossini wrote for the Teatro San Moise in Venice at the start of his career. The next one act opera by Rossini will be his best known work, La Scala di Seta. Once again the singers will be accompanied by their sparkling orchestra, and are delighted to announce that Jeanne Pansard-Besson, who recently was Assistant Director for Scottish Opera’s La Traviata, will be joining them as director.
Conductor Max Fane, pictured, said: ‘Raucous Rossini are delighted to be performing at Rosslyn Chapel this summer. Having founded the company 5 years ago with the ambition to stage Rossini’s five one act operas here in Scotland, we have completed two Scottish premiers. Whilst La Scala di Seta is a better known work, indeed recently performed by Scottish Opera, it is fitting that we are to complete these five operas at such a prestigious and unique venue. This both fulfils our desire to perform in beautiful and interesting spaces, but also to take opera to different areas of the community, especially out of the city’.
Tickets can be purchased through the Chapel website.
