"when I first encountered Eugene Onegin it felt like I’d known this music all my life"
Richard Studer - Artistic Director

Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin

Spring 2018

A stunning exploration of love, death, life and convention.

Filled with breath-taking arias including Tatyana’s great letter scene, a tour de force of the soprano repertoire, the poignant tale contrasts the simplicity of country life with the sophisticated excesses of Russia’s pre-revolutionary court and tells of the fated love between the innocent Tatyana and the world-weary cynic Onegin.

A fabulous cast includes rising new stars and internationally recognised performers. Led by MWO’s Artistic Directors Richard Studer and Jonathan Lyness, and accompanied by the brilliant Ensemble Cymru, this new production will ensure audiences are left enthralled and deeply moved.

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.
