From April 14th the majority of our staff at Mid Wales Opera will be furloughed due to the COVID-19 crisis. We’re all staying home across Mid Wales and the borders – and taking this step to safeguard the future of the company and be sure we can be back on the road as soon as it’s safe to do so.
We will keep in touch when we can, and we’ll keep thinking about how we can best bounce back from the current crisis. To get in touch with us please fill in the form.
Stay safe – and we’ll see everyone soon we’re sure.
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.
Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times
“Jonathan Lyness maintained a lively momentum in the pit with his tiny orchestra, single strings allowing the glorious woodwind writing to blossom, underpinning Studer’s basically traditional but always lively staging… [of] this rather lovable Figaro”
