For their 30th birthday Gala, Mid Wales Opera will be joined by special guests who’ve worked with the company through its history – as well as future stars of the international opera stage – for an evening of passion, drama and comedy from the operatic canon.
Our guest performer for the evening is soprano Galina Averina, who sang the role of Pamina for Mid Wales Opera in their 2017 production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. We’re also delighted to be joined by Stephen Medcalf who directed many of Mid Wales Opera’s early productions as well as Emily Gottlieb who worked back stage with us and now runs the National Opera Studio.
MWO and Wales International Academy of Voice (WIAV) join forces for a sparkling evening of operatic highlights in a concert performance to raise the curtain on our Spring tour of Puccini’s Tosca and celebrate MWO’s vital work in supporting young artists since our first performances in 1989.
