After rising cases of the Omicron Covid variant saw the theatre company’s Christmas concert cancelled last month, they are now looking towards their next performances in March.

Plans for their production of Lakme have been changed due to the ongoing uncertainties of the pandemic, and it will now be sung in concert form with an orchestra at the Old Kirk, Kirkcaldy on March 25 and 26.

A spokesperson for Fife Opera said: “We think this will be a fabulous concert and has the advantage of being able to focus on the music and incredible performance of the singers and orchestra.
