Live music and a picnic in the magnificent gardens of Gregynog Hall… is there a better way to spend a summer’s evening?
On Sunday 24 July the splendid Grade 1 listed gardens of Gregynog Hall near Newtown will provide the perfect summer backdrop for our annual Gala event.
Tickets are £16 (under 16s £5). Due to limited availability, tickets should be booked in advance online at: www.thehafren.co.uk or by calling the Hafren Box Office on 01686 948100.
Our Gregynog Garden Concert begins at 5pm and continues into the early evening, allowing time to enjoy the grounds alongside a picnic interval.
The concert will take place at the front of the Hall with seating on the paths and lawns in front of the house – audience members are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket.
Refreshments and picnics are available to book directly with Gregynog Hall: www.gregynog.org / 01686 650 224 or feel free to bring your own.
If the Welsh weather lets us down, then the Music Room will provide the setting for our gala.
Make a weekend of it! There is limited accommodation available at Gregynog Hall – please contact them directly to make enquiries: www.gregynog.org / 01686 650 224.
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).
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.
