    Scottish Opera is Scotland’s national opera company and is the largest performing arts organisation in Scotland.

    The company was founded by Alexander Gibson and was inaugurated with a production of Madame Butterfly at the King’s Theatre in Glasgow.

    In 1974, Scottish Opera purchased the Theatre Royal Glasgow, which reopened in 1975 as Scotland’s first national opera house.

    Notable achievements of Scottish Opera include the world premiere of James MacMillan’s Ines de Castro at the 1996 Edinburgh International Festival and the performance of the complete Ring cycles at the 2003 Edinburgh International Festival.

    Scottish Opera is committed to bringing the widest possible range of opera to the greatest size of audience throughout Scotland and the UK.

    Each year, the company performs in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness and at more than 50 other theatres, village halls and community centres.
