An orphaned girl defiantly alone in a wood. A young woman determined to survive in her tower. A Queen jealously protective of her empire. And an old woman using her wisdom to break the cycle. All are connected and defined by their striking red hair.

The fairy tales famously recorded by the Brothers Grimm and frequently re-told over centuries often cast their women in four archetypes corresponding with ages and stages of life: girl, maiden, mother, crone. RED is an interwoven story in four parts, examining the circular, metamorphic nature of these tales as well as experiences shared by generations of women across time through dark comedy and magical realism. RED questions, yet ultimately affirms, the impact a single person can have in the wider world.

Full of comedy and pathos and charting a path from the abstract to the absurd, this world premiere is written by award-winning composer Karen MacIver and Jane Davidson MBE, Scottish Opera’s Director of Outreach & Education. Together, they create a timeless, bold, expressionist world using musical and lyrical echoes from Stephen Sondheim and Bernard Herrmann, where women’s power is subject to scrutiny and alienation.

Flora Emily Thomson (Maud & Down in the Valley 2023) directs and Scottish Opera Young Company's Artistic Director Chris Gray conducts a cast of 14 young performers as they chart this journey through four snapshots of vibrant women’s lives.
