Reduced to four productions per season, Scottish Operaís choices are unenviable. As a subsidised company it canít just do Tosca and La traviata ñ but if it is to go beyond the ìpopularî without depleting its audience, it needs to choose carefully. Better follow the ensemble principle ñ establish the resources, then see what is possible ñ than choose an opera and see if it can be cast. But Scottish Opera has taken the latter route.
