Star Soprano Takes the Reins! – Absolute Classics Festival


The incredible rise of soprano Rebecca Bottone comes as no surprise to anyone who has heard her sing. Bottone has become a leading figure in the top Opera Houses round the world, after making her debut at the Royal Opera House in 2008. Recent engagements have included a tour with Welsh National Opera to Hong Kong, Pirates of Penzance with Scottish Opera and Mozart’s Idomeneo at Buxton Opera.

Speaking with Bottone she told us: “I absolutely love Scotland and I am so looking forward to coming to perform in Dumfries at the Absolute Classics Festival. It is always a pleasure to work with pianist, Phillip Thomas, we have a lovely programme for the concert and I hope everyone will enjoy it.”

Making their debut this year at the Theatre Royal in Dumfries, Rebecca Bottone and Phillip Thomas will perform on Saturday the 3th of August 7:30pm. The programme includes works by Lehar, Strauss and Novello. A beautiful selection of songs that will be familiar to everyone.

Director of Absolute Classics, Alex McQuiston, said: “It is a joy to have Rebecca come to perform at this year’s festival. We are of course sad that Adriano Graziani is not able to join us, but the show must go on! We couldn’t have hoped for a better singer to take the reins.” For tickets and information on Absolute Classics please visit www.absoluteclassics.co.uk.
