Scottish Opera is packing up its theatre on wheels and bringing three pop-up operas out on the road to Perth.

12.00 A Little Bit of Northern Light

14.00 A Little Bit of Figaro

15.00 A Little Bit of Mikado

Performed by a storyteller, singers and instrumentalists, and supported by a set of colourful illustrations, each show gives a fantastic introduction to opera. It will be in a converted trailer, recreating the Theatre Royal in Glasgow and parked beside Perth Concert Hall in Mill Street.
 

A Little Bit of Figaro and A Little Bit of Mikado are cleverly re-written versions of the full operas and are suitable for all ages.

 

A Little Bit of Northern Light tells the story of one lonely little lighthouse standing firm against the storms of the North Atlantic tide specifically created for 4 to 8 year olds.
 

Local schools will be visiting the trailer on Thursday 26th and Friday 27th May.
