I’m getting VERY excited about my upcoming trip to Scotland to sing in the new opera composed for the 2014 Games. I feel extremely honoured to be part of such a international event and am looking forward to meeting people from around the globe!
Here is the description of what it’s all about: Scottish Opera’s new family opera is based on themes of friendship and the ties that bind people together, whatever their age and wherever they make their home. Seven songs symbolising seven different kinds of friendship take you from day to night and through the circle of life – from childhood to teenagers in love and from adulthood to the golden years of life.
Anamchara – Songs of Friendship is written by acclaimed Scottish novelist Alexander McCall Smith and composer Pippa Murphy. A celebration of different cultures, the music features traditional instruments from India and Scotland. The multi-cultural cast of over 100 performers includes young professional singers and musicians from Scotland, India, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, Scottish Opera’s Connect Chorus and Orchestra, and a community choir made up of children, adults and students from Commonwealth countries, living and working in Glasgow.
