Tomorrow's third Traverse Theatre / Independent Conference is the first in a special two-day examination entitled Scottish Music in Theatre. Part 1 looks at the art of libretto writing and asks: What's the difference between writing a libretto and a play? Can writers explore territory in an opera that they couldn't in a play? What can playwrights learn from composers to become better librettists? Those taking part include John Clifford and Craig Armstrong, librettist and composer of Anna (premiered at the festival last Tuesday), Michael Wilcox (playwright) and John Purser (author of Scotland's Music).
