Following the success of last year’s production of ‘Carmen’, Fife Opera is delighted to announce its new show for 2015 - Gounod’s masterpiece ‘Faust’.

The company’s dynamic young musical director Alistair Digges is excited to be working on one of his favourite operas.

He said: “Faust is full of amazing music including the rousing Soldiers’ Chorus, the stunning Jewel Song and one of the most beautiful tenor arias ever written, to mention just a few!

“I’m looking forward to another great musical adventure in Fife!”

The company is delighted to welcome back Peter Easson to direct this story of corruption, lust, betrayal and redemption!

The Fife Opera Junior Chorus will also feature in the show once again.

Over 100 performers from Fife and beyond took part in ‘Carmen’ and the company are hoping to attract even more to join them for this years show which will be performed at the Adam Smith Theatre in November.

Two taster sessions are being held for people to come along and give it a go on Wednesday, April 22 and April 29.

The sessions start at 7.30 p.m. in the Hunter Hall on Kirk Wynd, Kirkcaldy.

Auditions for principals take place on April 26 and 27.

Youngsters aged nine to 14 can also get involved by joining the Junior Chorus workshops.
