Scottish Opera: The Elixir of Love
Deservedly popular with audiences when first unveiled over ten years ago, Giles Havergal’s witty production is revived as Scottish Opera get their new season underway. Good fun, if a bit silly, the music is easy on the ear, especially in the expert hands of the company’s music director Francesco Corti.
Theatre Royal, Glasgow, Wed 23 Sep.
In her only performance in Scotland this year, the world renowned and award-laden pianist plays Beethoven’s last three piano sonatas in a performance which launches an extensive series of Beethoven concerts at Perth Concert Hall. Others coming up include Llyr Williams playing the full cycle of piano sonatas and the Belcea Quartet performing all of the string quartets.
Perth Concert Hall, Mon 21 Sep.
