People who have saved this event:


Scottish Opera gives a long-overdue Scottish premiere to one of Mascagni’s lesser-known verismo operas. Music Director Stuart Stratford conducts The Orchestra of Scottish Opera and a glittering line-up of soloists, including acclaimed soprano Emma Bell as Matilde.


Much like Mascagni’s celebrated Cavalleria rusticana, Silvano is packed full of hard-hitting drama. A passionate seafaring tale, the plot centres on a doomed love triangle that ends in disaster, death and despair. Mascagni revels in this drama and the score, which includes the Barcarolle famously used in Scorsese’s Raging Bull, displays both his signature singing melodic lines and a spicy chromaticism that echoes much of Wagner’s work.

Conductor Stuart Stratford

Sung in Italian with English supertitles
