1770 Glasgow Single Malt Scotch: Sold-Out 'Navigate The Blood' Opera Sees Standing OvationsMonday 05th November 2018
Glasgow Distillery were delighted to host the world premiere of the brand new opera, Navigate the Blood, with two sold-out performances on 2 and 3 November.
Written by Sian Evans and composed by Gareth Williams (306, Dawn, Hirda, The Sloans Project) and Scottish indie-folk band Admiral Fallow, the story is inspired by the distilling industry in Scotland, and is set against the industrial backdrop of one of the country’s oldest trades.
Set in a small family distillery, Navigate the Blood follows a couple whose son, Liam, has disappeared in mysterious circumstances.
The opera, presented by NOISE, opened in the copper surroundings of our very own Glasgow Distillery, and will continue on touring distilleries throughout Scotland for the remainder of the month.The opera aims to attract indie fans and opera aficionados alike. Touring areas where there is no accessible opera house, Navigate the Blood will give many people an opportunity to see live opera for the first time.
A meeting between Liam Hughes, co-founder of Glasgow Distillery, and composer Gareth Williams, who both grew up in Armagh, laid the foundations for one of the industry’s most unusual collaborations.
At Glasgow Distillery, we value creativity and innovation. It’s at the heart of everything we do, so we’re proud to team up with NOISE and Admiral Fallow for Navigate the Blood.
This exciting new opera in an unconventional setting is a fitting tribute to the distilling industry. The juxtapision of old and new, polished and industrial, reflects the industry in the modern day. We were proud to host the world premiere of Navigate the Blood, and welcome guests to our distillery for two, unmissable nights.
Navigate the Blood continues a tour of seven distilleries throughout Scotland with Oban set to host the next performance on 8 November; before finishing at Speyside Gins at La Lanterna in Aviemore on 25 November.
