Meal do naidheachd, a Mhìchel (& Co)! :D


Pròiseact nan Ealan are delighted to announce that St Kilda: A European Opera has been nominated for two awards in the inaugural Scottish Events Awards organised by The Drum. The winners will be announced at a glittery ceremony held in Glasgow Science Centre on the 4th September. In attendance representing the St Kilda Project will be a selection of the international and Scottish project teams, as well as performers who took part in the production, including Carina MacLeod, Caxy MacAulay and Kenny “Iain” MacRae.

St Kilda: A European Opera was a spectacular live theatre and multi media event featuring vertical dancers, actors, musicians, choirs and Gaelic singers. It was performed on 22 and 23 June 2007 in five European venues simultaneously - France (Valenciennes), Belgium (Mons), Germany (Düsseldorf), Austria (Hallstatt) and Scotland (Stornoway) - linked by live satellite connection to St Kilda and webcast live on the BBC. The project has been nominated in the category for Best Arts Event, where it faces stiff competition from Radiance - Glasgow’s International Festival of Light, and Aye Write, Glasgow’s Book Festival. The project is also up for Best Traditional Event Award where it is up against The Scottish Pipe Band Championships and Scottish Comedian of the Year Awards.

Malcolm MacLean Director of Pròiseact nan Ealan said “We are honoured to have been nominated for these prestigious awards. So much hard work has gone into the St Kilda Project and it is great to see this enthusiasm, and the successes of last year, recognised. We have been nominated in the same categories as some outstanding projects and are very much looking forward to the Awards ceremony – it is sure to be a great night, whatever the outcome.”

As well as being nominated for this prestigious award, the St Kilda project is continuously gaining momentum. The French version of the opera is set to continue touring this autumn and winter, around France and even as far away as Africa. Whilst Scotland will see more developments surrounding a St Kilda Day as part of Homecoming 2009. More information on both of these exciting developments will be available soon.

Press Release – 8th September
St Kilda: A European Opera wins Best Traditional Event

On the 4th September, Glasgow Science Centre played host to the inaugural Scottish Events Awards Ceremony, organised by The Drum. Amongst the 400 hopefuls who attended the event, a team of organisers and actors from St Kilda: A European Opera attended, and are delighted to announce that St Kilda was successful in the category for Best Traditional Event.

Malcolm Maclean, Director of Pròiseact nan Ealan, said: “We are thrilled with our award for Best Traditional Event. This is well deserved, and it is great to see St Kilda up there with such popular national and international events as T in the Park and Connect Music Festival. Our sincere congratulations go our to all the winners of the first Scottish Events Awards”.

Whilst St Kilda beat both Ha Ha Comedy’s Comedian of the Year and the World Pipe Band Championships, the project unfortunately lost out in Best Arts Award Category where they were beaten by Radiance 07, Glasgow’s International Festival of Light.

Calum Macaulay, who acted in the Scottish production (Mac Talla nan Eun), and is well known as presenter for popular children’s programme Dè a-nis?, attended the event. He said: “"It was an absolute pleasure for me to be involved in the acting side of this amazing project and my experiences on both St Kilda and in Stornoway will remain with me forever more. I was in a state of disbelief when I heard our name being called out as winners as we were up against the world renowned World Pipe Band Championships. I was, and still am absolutely delighted for everyone involved in this project and I hope that we have not seen the end of St Kilda: A European Opera."

The sold out event evening brought together all areas of the industry; event promoters, event sponsors, suppliers, venues, strategists and marketers and provided a unique opportunity for all these areas to gather and be recognised and rewarded for the achievements. Entertainment was provided by Spinal Chord who performed an arial acrobatics routine reminiscent of the cliff dancing scenes used in the St Kilda project, performed by French company Retouramont.
