La bohème - Puccini
MWO MainStages

Spring 2022

It’s Christmas Eve and high above the streets of Paris a knock at the door begins the timeless love story of poet Rodolfo and his neighbour Mimi. Their fairytale romance feels like a Christmas miracle, but even the warmth of their love can’t defeat the winter chill

Gala Concert 2020

While our Our Friends of Mid Wales Opera Gala summer concert was cancelled because of the pandemic, we were able to create a digital version filmed last August. We hope you enjoy the varied programme put together by Charlotte Forrest, with performances by Fflur Wyn (soprano) and Robyn Lyn Evans (tenor).

Opera For Everyone

Mid Wales Opera crafts and performs fully-staged and intimate touring opera productions at venues across Wales & beyond. We are passionate about opera, taking inspiring productions into theatres and spaces where live opera is rarely seen and bringing it to new audiences. We are committed to nurturing, challenging and encouraging young and fresh talent by casting half or more of our performers from those who have recently graduated or are under thirty years old.

Our Spring 2020 production of Mozart’s comic classic The Marriage of Figaro, in partnership with the Welsh International Academy of Voice, takes a fresh look at this timeless audience favourite.

Steph Power, The Stage

“Cannily witty, big-hearted production of Mozart’s opera” – read the full review
