Mid Wales Opera

Spring Tour 2020

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.
