Mid Wales Opera highly anticipated tour of Carmen directed by Jonathan Miller in an English translation by comedian Rory Bremner – couldn’t be more proud of @Midwalesopera. TERRIFIC production of Carmen directed by Jonathan Miller. Touring now. Do catch it if you can – has  finally hit the road and the Company is now embarking on a 25 date tour of Wales and England.

In a new orchestration especially commissioned for the Mid Wales Opera Chamber Orchestra by opera and theatre composer Stephen McNeff – “he recalibrates the instrumental sound, albeit taking his cues from Bizet; the alto sax captures the smoky, sultry atmosphere” Rian Evans, The Guardian *** - Carmen has delighted audiences and critics at its opening performances at Hafren, Newtown, with huge praise towards the cast and in particular Helen Sherman as Carmen -

“Can a vamp with a vaporiser radiate danger? A blonde with killer legs, watchful eyes and a wonderfully elastic, expressive tone, Helen Sherman as Carmen sure can.” The Times ****,

sensuous and sassy, she controls her mezzo throughout the range, from the rich chest-voice to fearless top registers. Crucially she is a magnetic presence even when she is not singing or centre stage” The Guardian ***.

Tickets are going quickly so be sure to contact a venue near you today and not miss out on this real operatic treat.
