Professional soloists and Amicus orchestra join Paisley Opera’s full community chorus in a new production of Mascagni’s romantic masterpiece ‘Cavalleria Rusticana’, with a new, specially commissioned “Paisley” translation.

Postponed since June 2020, we are incredibly excited about at last presenting ‘A Paisley Kiss’ (Cavalleria Rusticana), Mascagni’s masterpiece about love and betrayal, all set around the town square on Easter Sunday. The performance lasts about 75 minutes during which the audience is free to move up and down the large outdoor space with the action.

Exciting, accessible opera for all.

A Paisley Kiss takes place at Central Road, Paisley PA1 1EN which is a covered but outdoor space. Please dress for the weather. Toilet provision is limited.

Ticket prices are £14 standard and £10 concessions (£5 unemployed).
Please note that all tickets are standing except for people who would find it difficult to stand for the performance.
Running time is 1hr 15 minutes approx.
