Opera (Glasgow): The Sloans Project

After selling out at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Sloans Project will return to its home in Glasgow this June. Composer Gareth Williams and librettist David James Brock created this site-specific promenade opera inspired by Glasgow's oldest pub, Sloans. The audience moves through the 250-year-old pub and encounters a series of scenes telling stories of love, loss, revenge and forgiveness.

Commissioned by NOISE Opera with development support from Tapestry New Opera, The Sloans Project premiered at the 2011 Merchant City Festival (Glasgow) and was remounted for the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 2012 Sound Festival (Aberdeen), and Tapestry New Opera's 2010-11 Season (Toronto).
