For the latest of our podcasts in collaboration with Scottish Opera we spoke to the company’s General Director Alex Reedijk, and it proved to be a fascinating conversation – one which adds extra context to all the other podcasts in the series.
Alex talks about how he came to the role, the challenges faced when he joined 14 years ago, the four central strands that run through the company’s ethos, what he is most proud of from his time with Scottish Opera, and a whole lot more.
It’s a must listen, not only for opera fans and followers, but for anyone involved in the arts as Alex gives a rare insight into what is involved in the organisation and the running of such a prestigious company.
These podcasts attempt to give greater understanding into the workings of Scottish Opera and the different roles of those involved, lending a rare and engaging appreciation of Scotland’s largest national arts company.
