Ellon’s rising opera star, bass-baritone Colin Brockie, will perform at the Woodend Barn in Banchory this Saturday (March 12) at 7.30pm.

He will present a programme accompanied by pianist Drew Tulloch including opera favourites by Mozart, Bizet and Handel, art songs by Vaughan Williams and Scott, and hits from musicals by Porter and Hammerstein.

As part of the 2014 sound festival, Colin performed the role of Dirk/the Devil in The Maiden Stone, a site-specific opera for Bennachie by composer Joe Stollery and librettist Catriona Yule, based on the North-east legend and thought to be the world’s first Doric opera.
