A delightful contrast

opera-camerataThis year, Opera Camerata – a “small, but perfectly formed” amateur opera company based in Edinburgh – is presenting a double bill:

  • Purcell’s baroque Greek tragedy tells of Dido, the queen of Carthage, and the loss of her lover Aeneas leading to her grief-stricken death.
  • Puccini’s comedy gem starts with a death and ends with lovers united after a farcical tussle between Gianni Schicchi and a pack of money-grabbing relatives.

Make a date to go to the Churchill Theatre for an evening that promises a delightful contrast. Both operas are sung in English. Performances are Wednesday–Saturday at 7:30, plus a 2:30 Saturday matinée.

Tickets are £15 and can be ordered from our very own Susanne Horsburgh, who is playing Zita, or you can phone on 0131 228 2304 or book online through the Usher Hall box office.
