Our Spring 2020 production of Mozart’s comic classic The Marriage of Figaro, in partnership with the Welsh International Academy of Voice, takes a fresh look at this timeless audience favourite. Wedding planning’s never easy but for Figaro and Susanna the marriage merry go round spins at bewildering speed. With more twists and turns than a fairground waltzer, and tunes audiences will know and love this is ideal opera for both aficionados and new comers looking to open the door to this most extraordinary of artforms. Our tour starts at Hafren, Newtown on February 29th – the perfect day to leap into opera!

“if there’s one thing that this company does supremely well, it’s putting on an entertaining show….If you’re in the business of taking opera to Abermule and Llandinam, you either give your public a great night out or you fold.”
Join MWO for an inspirational week of music making culminating in two fully staged public performances of John Blow’s masterpiece Venus & Adonis at St Andrew’s Church, Presteigne as well as an informal concert at Presteigne’s famous Judge’s Lodging .
