Scottish Culture minister Linda Fabiani visited the set of Scottish Opera’s Two Widows last week to mark the launch of the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festival Expo Fund. Despite being up half the night to see in the results of the East Glasgow by election, perhaps unsurprisingly the SNP minister was reported be in great form. She spent around half an hour on the set, enjoying a coffee with the creative team behind the production and chatting about the world premiere. The show, a co production between EIF and Scottish Opera, premieres on Saturday 9 August at 7.15pm and Mrs Fabiani said she was looking forward to seeing it during its three night run.
