Opera Bohemia - the cast of Eugene Onegin prepare for their big night in Strathpeffer

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.
