Mezzo-soprano Stephanie-Windsor Lewis returns to MWO from the autumn 2021 SmallStages tour of Puccini’s Il Tabarro.

In MWO’s 33rd year, supporting young singers remains at the heart of the company, with a commitment to casting singers younger than 30 or less than four years out of training. Hailing from North Wales is Welsh Baritone John Ieuan Jones, who graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music in 2019, and Welsh soprano Alys Mererid Roberts who played Polly in MWO’s 2019 production of Mrs Peachum’s Guide to Love and Marriage (their new version of John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera).

2022/23 Season Launch

Our annual Gala event at Gregynog Hall is a highlight of the summer. It traditionally launches our season, with a long history of performing in the Music Room. Summer 2021 saw the event move into the grounds, to allow for social distancing and the benefit of an open-air environment. Audiences loved the alfresco experience so much that, this year they’ll once again enjoy live opera in the grounds of the 750-acre historic Gregynog estate.
