Wandering Oisin is a retelling of a celtic fairy tale created by Storyteller Tony Bonning and pupils from St Peter's Primary School in Ardrossan with music composed by Harpist Esther Swift and Tenor David Douglas. The production will be performed by professional singers and musicians from Ayrshire Opera Experience and the pupils from St Peter's. The second half of the evening will feature Gaelic songs, including a special performance from the Largs Gaelic Choir.
In 2015 Ayrshire Opera Experience teamed up with the renowned storyteller Andy Cannon to produce a new opera that had been specially written for the Viking Festival. The story was created from a series of workshops with pupils from St Mary’s Primary School in Largs. The pupils worked with Andy to put together a story that was told through storytelling and songs. On the performance evening the same pupils performed the piece along side professional opera singers and Andy.
