Ensemble Thing to perform new opera by Emily Doolittle

Ensemble Thing is pleased to announce that we will give two performances of Emily Doolittle's new opera, Jan Tait and the Bear, in Glasgow in October 2016. Based on a 15th century Shetland story, this comedic opera is an interweaving of history and fiction about the Shetlandic local Jan Tait and his interactions with a Norwegian tax collector, the Norwegian king, and a bear.

This new production is supported by OPERA America, Canada Council for the Arts, and the Hinrichsen Foundation. Performances are at 8pm on 6th October, and 1pm on 8th October, at the CCA, Glasgow. More details to be announced soon!
