THE SCOTTISH Opera will present a special performance next month.

Brought to life by the National Opera Studio, the show will take place at Theatre Royal Glasgow on February 25.

Anarchy at the Opera will be performed by 15 young artists and the Orchestra of Scottish Opera, conducted by Head of Music Derek Clark.

Director Emma Jenkins said: "This year, the young artists will explore the theme of ‘Absurdism’ through the medium of some of the most anarchic and off-the-wall pieces in the operatic repertoire. 

"The event will be very much an ensemble effort testing their physical skills as well as their vocal prowess. From Les Mamelles des Tirésias to Alcina, from Cheryomushki to Le Roi Carotte, the audience can look forward to a thrilling evening of anarchy and mirth."

Scottish Opera General Director, Alex Reedijk, said: "Our long-term partnership with National Opera Studio is one that we continue to cherish and have missed over the last few years due to the pandemic.

"We can’t wait to welcome them back to Scotland, and look forward to working with the talented young singers and repetiteurs.

"We have experienced first-hand the talent that National Opera Studio encourages, and are proud to have had so many of our own emerging artists join us after their fine programme."
