SPRING 2020

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. Wedding planning’s never easy but for Figaro and Susanna the marriage merry go round spins at bewildering speed. With more twists and turns than a fairground waltzer, and tunes audiences will know and love this is ideal opera for both aficionados and new comers looking to open the door to this most extraordinary of artforms. Our tour starts at Hafren, Newtown on February 29th – the perfect day to leap into opera!

  • Director/Designer Richard Studer
  • Conductor Jonathan Lyness
  • Lighting Designer Dan Saggars
  • Orchestra Ensemble Cymru
  • Sung in English translation by Amanda Holden

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.
