Trial by Jury

Scottish Opera - Trial By Jury

First performed in 1875, this is the first major hit from the partnership of WS Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. Set around a classic case of broken vows - the defendant having literally left the claimant at the altar - the trial bubbles over with emotion, humour, and downright chaos, leaving the jury divided. How will they decide between the charming yet swindling defendant and the utterly captivating claimant?

A Matter of Misconduct!

Following the crowd-pleasing political satire In Flagrante, which premiered on the 2023/24 Opera Highlights tour, Emma Jenkins and Toby Hession present a daring new operetta set in the press room at Number 9 Downing Street.

When a scandal threatens to break about the front runner in a bloody leadership campaign, a lawyer is needed to prevent information from reaching the press. Sylvia Lawless from the firm Lawless, Lawless, Lawless and Crook must find the loopholes in this modern take on unsavoury behaviour.

Sung in English with English supertitles
