Opera Emerging: a Documentary with Scottish Opera Emerging Artists 2023/24

A lovely documentary from Scottish Opera that follows emerging artists Ross Cumming (baritone), Inna Husieva (soprano), Monwabisi Lindi (tenor), costume trainee Lovisa Litsgard, associate artist Lea Shaw (mezzo-soprano) and emerging artist repetiteur José Javier Ucendo, in their journey to create a performance of Rossini's The Barber of Seville in October 2023. 

[We caught both Inna Husieva and Monwabisi Lindi in opera scenes during their time at the National Opera Studio in January 2022, see my review, whilst Ross Cumming was Pilgrim in British Youth Opera's production of Vaughan Williams' The Pilgrim's Progress at the Three Choirs Festival in 2023, see my review]

Ross Cumming, Inna Husieva and Lea Shaw will be performing around Scotland in Scottish Opera's Spring 2024 Opera Highlights tour. See the website for details.

The documentary was filmed at Scottish Opera's Production Studios, Edington Street and Elmbank Crescent, and Theatre Royal Glasgow during October 2023. Filmed and edited by Antonia Bain. See the video on YouTube.
