Dandie Dinmont
Approx 45 minutes

Tickets £5.00

The Borders Book Festival is delighted to host the world premiere of an operetta written by Alexander McCall Smith with music composed by Tom Cunningham and directed by David Lyle. The performance will help celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction and what could be more appropriate than taking the character of Dandie Dinmont from Scott’s novel Guy Mannering and weaving a story and music around it? Four wonderful professional opera singers will be supported by Dandie’s children - eight pupils from Melrose Primary School. Come and join in the celebrations!

Remember, if a performance has sold out, you can check back on Monday 20th May for returns!
