An exciting new opera is coming to Broughton early next month, showcasing the work of composer Gareth Williams.
Scottish Opera’s inaugural composer in residence has devised the opera, Dance ‘til the Sun Sets’, especially for the annual 15 date whistle-stop tour around the country.
In what will be a treat for local opera fans, the show will be performed alongside arias and ensembles from well-known operas as well as a sprinkling of lesser-known works from other composers.
A cast of four talented young singers will bring the eclectic programme to life thanks to their range of talents.
They are baritone Jonathan McGovern (with Riccardo Simonetti singing for the final six performances), soprano Anita Watson, mezzo-soprano Rosie Aldridge and tenor Robert Anthony Gardiner.
