Mid Wales Opera’s tapas menu of free operatic treats returns to Pontio, Bangor on Wednesday March 13th at 6.30pm with five singers performing music from favourite composers including Mozart, Bizet and Puccini.

The ‘Operatif’ concert is a curtain raiser for Mid Wales Opera’s performance of Puccini’s Tosca on Thursday March 14th with North Wales based soprano Elin Pritchard in the title role as the doomed diva.

Wednesday evening’s Operatif programme includes a guest performance by tenor Robyn Lyn Evans, currently touring with Welsh National Opera in Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux, as well as soprano Alys Mererid Roberts, performing in MWO’s Tosca tour as the Shepherd Boy/Chapel Boy.
