MWO's SmallStages

Autumn 2019

Experience opera on your doorstep this autumn as MWO’s SmallStages team romps onto stage with a radical reworking of John Gay’s 1728 work The Beggar’s Opera. Join Mrs Peachum, her daughter Polly and the Beggar himself in their bawdy, ballsy take on relationships and the relative virtues of virginity.

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.
