Our most recent staged production was an evening of staged excerpts from operas set in Spain. There are plenty to choose from, ranging from the very well-known to the much more rarely performed - so our show included scenes from The Barber Of Seville, Don Giovanni, Verdi's The Force Of Destiny, Ravel's L'Heure Espagnole, Bernstein's Candide and more, in a fast-moving and varied evening of drama, laughter and Spanish passion - and, of course, wonderful music.

¡España! was directed by Mark Hathaway and performed by five singers with Opera On A Shoestring's musical director Ruth Wilkinson on piano, and was very well received by audiences in Glasgow, Stirling, Ayr, Banff and Beith, and - in a concert version - in Gordonstoun.
