For the last 12 months, Scottish Opera has been working with undergraduate writers (Ruth Potts and James Leonard) and composers (Joe Stollery and Mark McNamee) at the University of Aberdeen to encourage the next generation of opera makers. Working with two experienced mentors – Scottish Opera’s Composer in Residence, Gareth Williams and director and dramaturg, Matthew Richardson – the students have created two short operas.
