Scottish Opera has featured heavily on the Edinburgh Fringe this year.
The company is staging daily performances of its operas for babies and toddlers as well as a new show set in Depression-era America.
Dance Derby is a collaboration with dance company Chordelia and will recreate the brutal dance marathons of the 1930s.
