Jonathan Dove’s life-affirming comedy flies north for its Scottish Opera premiere, with all the feel-good flair that garnered the performances at Opera Holland Park such rave reviews in 2015.

Inspired by the same story as Spielberg’s The Terminal, Flight tells the tale of a group of total strangers stranded in an airport during an electrical storm – as tensions rise and their relationships unravel some unexpected discoveries are made… Dove’s vividly inventive score channels a huge range of influences into his own distinctive style – from the fast-paced brilliance of Rossini to Mozart, Ravel and Bernstein.

Full performances on 1st and 3rd March at 7.15pm

One hour taster only on 2nd March at 6pm.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Scottish Opera: Flight are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
