Pop-Up Opera at Glamis Castle – August

28 August 2021, 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Pop-Up Opera 2

Scottish Opera’s Pop-up Opera is heading to Glamis Castle this Summer with three brilliant shows for audiences of all ages.

While past productions of Pop-up Operas have accommodated both the audience and performers inside the mobile Theatre Royal trailer, this year performances are al fresco with a covered stage and audiences out front in the open air, seated in household bubbles in line with Scottish Government guidelines.

Each performance is brought to life by a storyteller, singers, instrumentalists and a series of colourful illustrations including storyteller Allan Dunn, along with singers Stephanie Stanway, Charlotte HoatherAndrew McTaggart, Mark Nathan, Jessica Leary, instrumentalists Andrew Drummond Huggan, Laura Sergeant, Sasha Savaloni and Ian Watt, with a series of colourful illustrations helping guide the audiences through the somewhat convoluted, but always comical, adventurous tales of Gilbert & Sullivan.

TOUR 2 at Glamis Castle will be held on 28th August with the below performances:

12 noon – A Little Bit of HMS Pinafore : BUY TICKETS 

2.30pm – A Little Bit of The Pirates of Penzance: BUY TICKETS

6.00pm – A Little Bit of The Pirates of Penzance : BUY TICKETS

A Little Bit of HMS Pinafore Gilbert & Sullivan
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…

A Little Bit of The Pirates of Penzance Gilbert & Sullivan
A young man bound by an overactive sense of duty, a soft-hearted pirate king with a hopeless band of rogues at his side, a beautiful young girl, a very modern major-general and an ineffectual bevy of policemen add a plot hinging on the technicalities of having a birthday on the 29th of February… What could possibly go wrong?
