A vibrant interpretation of opera La Traviata is being brought to Kirkcaldy by Opera Bohemia, a company set up in 2010, by Douglas Nairne and Alistair Digges.

Part of a Scottish tour, the exciting new production – which aims to try and introduce a new and younger generation of audience to opera – will be performed at the Old Kirk on August 27.

Douglas, who is from Kirkcaldy, is delighted to be producing the show to the Old Kirk. He said: “It is particularly exciting to be returning to my hometown.”

A cast of some of Scotland’s finest home grown talent, takes to the stage for this intimate and gripping new production. The performances will be accompanied by the Opera Bohemia Ensemble under the baton of Alistair. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

“He said: “We hope that opera lovers and those who are intrigued by the idea, will come and watch the show.”
