Scottish Opera

Scottish Opera is Scotland’s national opera company and the largest performing arts organisation in Scotland.

It was founded by Alexander Gibson and was inaugurated with a production of Madama Butterfly at the King’s Theatre in Glasgow. In 1974 Scottish Opera purchased the Theatre Royal Glasgow, which reopened in 1975 as Scotland’s first national opera house. The Orchestra of Scottish Opera was founded in 1980.
