AN OUTDOOR opera show will be in full voice tomorrow at an Ayr park.

Scottish Opera's Pop-up roadshow will visit Rozelle Estate with three brilliant shows on offer which are completely free.

The audience will be transported from Ayr to waterways of Venice as well as a new show telling the story of Scotland’s most famous river.

Guests can expect to see mini-operas which are 25-minute versions of full operas.

On the bill will be ‘A Little Bit of Don Giovanni’ and ‘A Little Bit of The Gondoliers’, while ‘The Song of The Clyde’ will entertain families and young children.

Ayr Advertiser:

The nationwide tour kicked off on Friday, September 4 after the Scottish Government guidelines on August 20 allowed for the outdoor performances to go ahead.

The shows are being performed on a specially adapted trailer to create a portable stage which will adhere with social distancing measures.

The al fresco style performances will be a change from the usual mobile Theatre Royal Trailer, with the stage covered and the audiences out in the open air.

Scottish Opera’s Director of Outreach and Education, Jane Davidson said: "Scottish Opera’s Pop-up tour is even more delighted than ever to be out and about across the country, performing a selection of miniature gems from the opera repertoire.

Ayr Advertiser:

“Alongside the dark and powerful tale of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, you will be transported to Venice to observe the complicated love lives of two lads who make their living on the waterways of that most romantic of cities in Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Gondoliers.

“Continuing with the watery theme, a new show for families with younger children, The Song of The Clyde, traces the history that sprang up along the banks of one of Scotland’s most famous rivers from ancient times right up to the present day. As once was said, Glasgow made the Clyde and the Clyde made Glasgow.”

The concert will take place at Rozelle Estate (Holy Fair Field).

Those attending will have to provide consent for contact information to be passed on to NHS Scotland in the event Test and Protect is required.
