Stuart MacRae's Anthropocene finds new life

17 May 2019

Stuart MacRae's most recent opera Anthropocene, which was such a success at it's world premiere in Scotland in January 2019, has been taken up both online and in a new production for the 2019/20 season.

From May 17 until November 19 2019 the original Scottish Opera production by Matthew Richardson is available to view online for free on the Opera Vision website. Receiving a host of 4- and 5-star reviews in the national press, it was described as "enthralling" by the Daily Telegraph and "a work that surely embodies the spirit of good 21st century opera" by Classical Music Magazine.

This is closely followed by a new production at the Salzburg Landestheater in Austria during the 2019/20 season. Conducted by their Music Director Designate, Leslie Suganandarajah, and directed by Agnessa Nefjodov, the show premieres on May 2 2020 and has 6 performances until June 7 2020.

Before then, Stuart MacRae has two new premieres:

On September 11 2019 the Dunedin Consort premiere a short new work by Stuart in their BBC Proms programme celebrating the orchestral suites of J.S. Bach.

Later in September 2019, Stuart's three year residency at the Lammermuir Festival in Scotland comes to a dramatic conclusion with the premiere of "Prometheus Symphony", a major new orchestral score for the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, soprano and baritone.
