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.

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”
