MWO bring a fresh approach to Mozart’s enduring masterpiece for their 2020 Spring tour. Using Amanda Holden’s English translation filled with ‘uninhibited mirth’ and our own Music Director’s orchestral arrangement of Mozart’s sublime score, our brand-new production will be tailor made in Wales with international performers joined on stage by young talent from the Wales International Academy of Voice. Join Figaro and Susanna on their marriage merry go round, as servants outwit their masters, women outwit their men and true love triumphs against the odds.
In Tosca we have it all, from tender love story to powerful brutality and ultimate tragedy. For our new production, directed with a fresh perspective by Richard Studer, our brilliant principals were joined by over 100 community chorus members across Wales and were once again accompanied by Ensemble Cymru conducted by Jonathan Lyness. The result was a ‘stunning’, ‘spectacular’ and ‘dramatic’ production seen by over 2400 people.
With a cast of 14 and in partnership with Ensemble Cymru for the first time, Eugene Onegin picked up on the year’s Russian theme and toured through the snowy spring of 2018. Audiences across Wales and in Hereford witnessed Tchaikovsky’s “consideration on love, humanity and passion, rendered with a beauty and tenderness that has left us haunted by its effect” (audience member Llanelli).
