The SCO new season strikes up on a tremendous note . . . a high note that will be sustained through the months and concerts to come.

Making her first British concert performance for 5 years, the legendary and celebrated soloist Dame Joan Sutherland will be singing Arias by Verdi, Handel, and Donizetti (including the Mad Scene from Lucia di Lammermore) in what promises to be a stunning Operatic Gala.

With the baton in the very capable hands of Richard

Bonynge, this is a concert that no serious music-lover will want to miss. Theatre Royal, Glasgow (first) on Sunday 4 October to be followed by Usher Hall, Edinburgh on Wednesday 7 October. (The Royal Bank Concert). ,

Make sure to be there—book now!


The SCO new season—our first season with new Principal Conductor Jukka-Pekka Saraste—will play on through a feast of musical highlights which include Christmas with The King's Singers, Pinchas Zukerman playing the Beethoven Violin Concerto and an evening with Stuart Burrows.

You'll see new faces, you’ll hear much-loved musical favourites—it’s a new season which will absorb and delight from beginning to end.
