This summer, Scottish Opera is bringing two brilliant Pop-up Opera shows for audiences of all ages to Festival 2018, the cultural programme surrounding the city’s hosting of the first ever European Championships. From August 2, performances of A Little Bit of HMS Pinafore and Be A Sport, Spike!, which has been commissioned by Festival 2018, are being staged at various Glasgow venues including Go Live! at the Green, schools, parks and community centres.
Scottish Opera’s fully accessible travelling opera house – a specially adapted trailer designed to look like a miniature Theatre Royal Glasgow – will also be journeying to other areas hosting sport across Scotland, including Balloch, Perth, Kilsyth, Stirling, Edinburgh and Kirkintilloch. The 30-minute shows, which are brought to life by a storyteller, singers, instrumentalists and a series of colourful illustrations, have been on tour since the end of May visiting the Inner and Outer Hebrides, Perth’s Solas Festival and Haddington Show.
