Edinburgh International Book Festival: Alexander McCall Smith

Synopsis

AN OPERA FOR HUMANITY

As well as being a bestselling novelist, Alexander McCall Smith has a passion for music. He set up the No. 1 Ladies’ Opera House in Botswana to give local singers a chance to perform; plus he’s written several operas and song cycles including Silver Darlings and Fergus of Galloway.

Today he discusses books, music and opera, the ways they influence one another and his love for each form.

Part of our Music Matters series of events.

Tickets go on sale at 8:30am on Tuesday 26 June.
