Por­tavadie

The Oban Times - - Districts -

SCOT­TISH Opera’s Popup Opera is back on the road in 2017, and takes to the waves on Scot­land’s first float­ing opera house, the con­verted pi­lot cut­ter Mur­ray McDavid.

This year there will be per­for­mances of A Lit­tle Bit of Pi­rates of Pen­zance and A Lit­tle Bit of Bub­ble McBea, which is for chil­dren aged four to seven, on the Mur­ray McDavid, sail­ing into mari­nas ‘doon the wat­ter’ through­out sum­mer.

There will also be spe­cial shows for schools in mari­nas down the Clyde, and at Por­tavadie Ma­rina on June 18, with shows at noon, 2pm and 4pm.

Pop-up au­di­ences can also catch these 25-minute shows, plus another A Lit­tle Bit of La Bo­hème, A Lit­tle Bit of Pi­rates of Pen­zance and A Lit­tle Bit of Bub­ble McBea, on Scot­tish Opera’s fully ac­ces­si­ble trav­el­ling opera house – a spe­cially adapted trailer de­signed to look like a minia­ture Theatre Royal Glas­gow. Each bite-sized pro­duc­tion is brought to life by a nar­ra­tor, singers, mu­si­cians and a se­ries of colour­ful il­lus­tra­tions.

Scot­tish Opera will be on its boat, the Mur­ray McDavid, and spe­cially adapted trailer be­low.
