Acéton Meets Tam O’Shanter

CULTURES collide in a spectacular new production from Ayrshire Opera Experience.

Actéon meets Tam O'Shanter takes a tale from Greek mythology and fuses it with Robert Burns' Tam O' Shanter in a dark depiction of voyeurism and tragedy – told in the Scots language.

Tenor David Douglas and his Ayrshire Operatic Experience will be performing the piece at the Robert Burns Humanitarian Awards night at the Burns Birthplace museum in Ayr on January 22 and later in the Spring they are planning to perform it at the Gaiety Theatre and The Albany in Greenock, with a possible date in Arran also being pencilled in.

David said: "It is a reworking of the chamber opera Actéon by one of the most important French composers of his generation, Marc-Antoine Charpentier. This ground-breaking piece merges Scots Language with French Baroque Opera and Greek mythology, retelling the story of a young hunter, who like Tam O' Shanter stumbles across an illicit vision.

“Unfortunately Actéon was not as lucky to escape the dark forces who, under many guises, punish voyeuristic men."

Ayrshire Operatic Experience has around three dozen members, made up of amateur and community singers as well as a number of professional singers.

David adds: "Opera is seen as a high art form while the Scots language is often looked down upon. This production raises Scots language up to a level where it is as good as any other language."

More information on Ayrshire Operatic Experience is available via their website page.Meanwhile, David's own website at has details on a number of events and projects which may also be of interest.
