About Amadeus & The Bard: 18th Century Cosmic Brothers

Delve into a world of love, magic and music as we take you for a night out at Poosie Nansie’s Inn, favourite haunt of a certain Rabbie Burns…

Mixing storytelling and song this brand new show from Scottish Opera celebrates the lives of two much-loved men, Mozart and Burns, and the sometimes surprising similarities between them.

A talented cast of singers and instrumentalists blend traditional Burns folk tunes with music from some of Mozart’s most popular operas – from the magical and mystical in Tam O’Shanter and The Magic Flute to the heartfelt declarations of love in A Red, Red Rose and The Marriage of Figaro.

Fun and full of energy, dramatic and emotive, Amadeus & The Bard will bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye. So come in, pull up a chair and get ready for a night of great entertainment!

Running time approx. 1 hour
Recommended for ages 12+

Touring to: Earlston, Kirkcudbright, Annan, Auchinleck, Ayr, Largs, Edinburgh, Paisley & Glasgow

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Amadeus & The Bard: 18th Century Cosmic Brothers are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
