Music by Alan Penman.  Lyrics by Johnny McKnight.  WORLD PREMIERE.  Spring 2014. Produced by Scottish Opera. 

Enter if you dare…. it’s midnight and the ghosts of the ancient MacCabbra Opera House are rising from their graves to help struggling writers Compo Zerr and Libby Retto finish their final masterpiece.  Can they polish it off before the audience arrive?  Will the critics slay their creation?  And more importantly, will the hapless duo make it safely through the night? 

A gothic horror for upper primary pupils, The Curse of the MacCabbra Opera house is a cross-curricular extravaganza that explores both the work that goes into creating an opera, both on-stage and off.
