Michael Scott

Michael Scott loves working in all aspects of theatre. He had a successful career as a dancer, beginning with London City Ballet and Scottish Ballet. Highlights include tap-dancing as a bellhop in English National Opera’s The Mikado; Cossack dancing at Princess Diana’s fund-raising party held at her family home, Spencer House; flamenco dancing in the world’s largest production of Carmen with José Carreras; and knocking both Carreras and Placido Domingo to the floor of the stage of the Royal Opera House.

Over the past ten years, Michael has been involved in Scotland’s thriving amateur scene including choreographing for Fife Opera, singing Perchik in SLO’s Fiddler on the Roof and General Deelah in EDGAS’s Cups and Saucers. He also acted in Edinburgh Grad’s two-hander that won the 2018 week-long One-Act Play competition at Edinburgh’s Church Hill Theatre. Before Covid lockdown he played Bunthorne in the Kirkcaldy G&S production of Patience and directed and designed the Aristophanes Greek comedy Women in Parliament before working as choreographer and movement director of Opera Bohemia’s Merry Widow, which had an 18-venue tour of Scotland. Iolanthe is Michael’s first production with DGASS as director following his performance as Major-General Stanley in last year’s The Pirates of Penzance.
