Glasgow’s oldest bar has played host to some tall tales in its 215 year history. But now, Sloans is going a step further, with an Opera.

As part of the Merchant City festival, Gareth Williams and librettist David Brock invited members of the public to submit their stories about Sloans to form a brand new production.

Fringe festival veteran Gareth said: “Many Glaswegians got in touch with their own stories”.

NOISE is committed to the promotion and development of opera.

James Robert Carson, co-artistic director of NOISE, said: “We aim to continue creating operas in unusual places — such as Sloans”.

The audience travel through the three levels of the pub as the stories unfold culminating in an interactive celebration in the stunning grand ballroom on the third floor.

The Sloans Project starts on Wednesday running until Sunday with daily matinee and evening performances (2pm and 7pm).
