Romantic Moray date set by acclaimed operatic company

A Lossiemouth audience is once again set for an operatic treat next month with the return of the highly acclaimed Opera Bohemia to the town.

The Glasgow-based professional operatic company are returning for a fifth consecutive year to the Lossiemouth Town Hall where on Valentines Day they will present a production of Puccini’s ‘Gianni Schicchi’.

Lossiemouth has been a favoured destination for Opera Bohemia since the company were first formed after an initial performance at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2010.

Founder of the group is Alistair Digges, who said: “The whole cast always really love visiting Lossiemouth – we always have a really nice time there.

“It has become a tradition to stay at the Stotfield Hotel and we try to plan a day off after the show so we can spend time when enjoying the scenery.

“The Lossiemouth Town Hall is the perfect space for our intimate productions and there is always a great atmosphere and a really supportive audience. Some of the places we go to are big theatres around Scotland and the people there are amazed that we make a point of going to Lossiemouth.

“But we get absolutely fantastic audiences there – it has became a tradition for us.”

Included in the cast for the Moray performance will be Shuna Sendall, who recently won the BBC Kiri prize while Scottish Opera’s Andrew McTaggart will play the role of Schicchi.

Tickets for the performance can be purchased from the Lossiemouth Post Office or by calling 01592 596904
