Berwick Festival Opera and Byre Opera: Exclusive Behind the Scenes Taster Event

The full Byre Opera team are spending the day at Berwick Town Hall this Sunday, 17 March, to start work on a major new co-production with Berwick Festival Opera that'll be performed in Berwick in 2020.

Debussy's only opera Pelleas and Melisande is a landmark in 20th century music, re-orchestrated for Byre Opera and Berwick Festival Opera by our very own Matthew Rooke, with a new libretto by Award winning Scots writer JANICE GALLOWAY.

The internationally acclaimed FITZWILLIAM QUARTET plus 8 other musicians provide a magnificent chamber orchestra, conducted by MICHAL DOWNES (Director of Music at the University of St Andrews).

All this amazing talent will be together on the day. We'd like to offer Friends and Byre Opera attendees an exclusive chance to experience a brief glimpse of what's in store in a mini showcase event at the end of the day between 6pm and 6.30pm.

Entrance to the Town Hall will be via the main steps only - doors will open at 5.50pm and close promptly at 6pm - no late entry, and you do need to book in advance. 

If you'd like to join us, then book a free ticket now!
