Handel Solomon with SCO Chorus

Time: 19:30
Price: £34, £29, £22, £17 and £11

One of Handel’s most sensuous oratorios, Solomon, has plenty of opportunities for an evocation of the east and some wonderful writing for sopranos, led here by the style-perfect Elizabeth Watts. It’s famous for the oboe-piping Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, but there are many more delights to discover. Dutch conductor Peter Dijkstra, best known for his work with choirs great and small, and now branching out into orchestral conducting, makes a very welcome return to the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

Proudly sponsored by Baillie Gifford
