In a first for Scotland a new opera Navigate the Blood will be performed in distilleries across the country.

Coordinated by New Opera in Scotland (NOISE) the production, composed by Admiral Fallow and Gareth Williams, with a libretto by Sian Evans will pour into Glen Scotia’s Old Still Room on Friday November 9.

Performed against an industrial background, touring to regions where there is no accessible opera house, Navigate the Blood will give many people an opportunity to see live opera for the first time.
