Opera Bohemia are preparing to celebrate one of their favourite places to perform with one of their favourite operas.
The young, up-and-coming opera troupe return to Strathpeffer Pavillion on Sunday 23rd for a performance of the classic Tchaikovsky opera, Eugene Onegin.
Alastair Digges, one half of the founding members, spoke of the thrill of being back in the Highlands. He said: “Strathpeffer is a special venue for the opera company; it was the Pavilion’s interest in Opera Bohemia bringing a performance there that sparked the first spring tour back in 2011. The company always looks forward to their Strathpeffer performance, it’s a fantastic venue and there’s always an exciting atmosphere.”
The opera, based on Alexander Pushkin’s famous novel, tells the story of a wealthy young man, who lives to regret his nonchalant dismissal of a young woman's love. John Wilkie’s new production sets the action in the time of the Russian Revolution. The production received its first performance at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe attracting a large audience and fantastic feedback.
