The Acting Scene were delighted to provide students for Carmen and Tosca at the Edinburgh Playhouse. The young people had to learn lyrics in Italian, French, and Latin and act in a variety of scenes. They all rehearsed extremely hard and rose to the occasion in the both Opera’s.Tosca was a traditional production was heady mixture of true love, torture and treachery, which has two of the best roles for tenor and soprano, plus a truly blood curdling villain. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Rome, with spectacular costumes, the students played alter servers and sang beautifully during the Act. One of our male pupils wowed the audience with his solo performance as the Sheppard boy, and was praised highly by the professional cast for his impressive singing talent.

Carmen is one of the most famous and seductive operas of all time; Bizet’s irresistibly emotional Carmen guaranteed an evening of passion and romance. With an impressive cast this dazzling production features Bizet’s unforgettable melodies including the best-known baritone aria of all, The Toreador’s Song. The Acting Scene student’s played young gypsies and enjoyed the experience immensely.

Everyone at The Acting Scene couldn’t be more proud of their students. Ellen Kent productions praised them for their high standard of singing and acting along with their professionalism.
