Scottish Opera’s accessible afternoon performances make coming to a favourite opera as easy and stress-free as possible – keeping the drama on stage where it belongs!

Production shot

With Dementia Friendly values at their core, these shortened performances are open to all.

Performed by a full cast and orchestra, they also feature a narrator to take you through the story and introduce the music from the opera. There are wheelchair spaces and extra staff on hand to help. There is also a smaller capacity to allow everyone space, and brighter lighting levels in the auditorium, giving you the flexibility and freedom to move about as required.

So whether you’re living with dementia, recovering from an operation, have Long Covid, or are simply anxious about coming back to the theatre post pandemic – you can relax and enjoy everything opera has to offer.

Gianni Schicchi – one of the three one-act operas that together make up the epic triptych Il trittico, which will also be performed in full at Theatre Royal Glasgow – follows a dysfunctional family caught in the snare of a shameless conman, with Puccini’s music, including the favourite O mio babbino caro, creating its own vivid sound world. Here it is presented as an Access performance for those who would enjoy a more relaxed opera experience.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles
