Scottish Opera is packing up its theatre on wheels and taking The Pop-up Opera Roadshow to Stirling as part of Festival 2018, the cultural programme for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships. Fun-filled 25-minute shows for all the family are brought to life by a storyteller, singers, musicians and a series of colourful illustrations, offering a fantastic introduction to opera.
The performances take place in a specially-adapted, fully-accessible trailer re-creating Glasgow’s Theatre Royal!
A LITTLE BIT OF HMS PINAFORE – Gilbert & Sullivan arr. Derek Clark
Aboard the ship HMS Pinafore, Josephine, the captain’s daughter, is in love with one of the crew. Her father definitely doesn’t approve. Overturning social order and parental wishes alike, the couple plan to elope. But a surprise confession soon leaves everything in doubt…
For families of parents with children (NOT for children on their own)
Note from Scottish Opera: Rough Age Guide P6/7 upwards but enjoyable for younger kids too.
This show takes place at Fallin Primary School (in truck outside in the car park)
