The Tumbling Lassie
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A Fringe premiere performed together with Fergus of Galloway: two Scottish operas by Alexander McCall Smith set to music by Tom Cunningham, with a cast of singers, instrumentalists and a real acrobat! The Tumbling Lassie tells the true story of an acrobat in a circus in 17th-century Edinburgh and her escape from slavery with the help of a Borders family. Fergus of Galloway relates the exploits of a 12th-century knight as he puts himself through various challenges in order to win the hand of the beautiful Galiene, ruler of Lothian.
