The Royal Deeside Railway, Milton of Crathes



Belongings is a miniature music theatre piece inspired by items of luggage carried by railway passengers. It premiered to acclaim on the Caledonian Sleeper (the first ever opera to be performed on the sleeper train!) leaving Aberdeen en route to Euston station in July this year, as well as across public spaces as part of Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival. You can catch it again en route from London to soundfestival in Aberdeen on Thursday 9 November, or on Friday 10 November with the Royal Deeside Railway.
