BLO New Works | An Opera Annex Initiative

When Edinburgh’s world-renowned anatomy schools face a cadaver shortage in the 1820s, two men smell a money-making enterprise. Based on historical events, this highly theatrical and brutally funny chamber opera follows the infamous ten-month killing spree of William Burke and William Hare – and questions how far society will go in the name of “science”.

Music by Julian Grant | Libretto by Mark Campbell, A world premiere commissioned by Music-Theatre Group with additional support from BLO
Sung in English with English surtitles.

WED | NOV 8| 7:30PM

*Friday, Nov 10 is BLO’s The Opera Gala with a special performance of Burke & Hare to support New Works
