What’s On

Our 2017-18 Season has a strong Russian flavour, with two fantastic productions lined up as part of Wales’ R17 commemorations marking 100 years since Russia’s revolution. Both shows have been carefully chosen to delight audiences across Wales and the Borders.

The Bear

Mid Wales Opera is bringing its brand new SmallStages concept to venues where opera is rarely seen. Enjoy this classic comedy in one act at a venue near you this Autumn!

Eugene Onegin

Eugene Onegin combines Pushkin’s compelling and heart-breaking story with Tchaikovsky’s sweeping lyricism in a stunning exploration of love, death, life and convention.

Our artistic directors, Richard Studer and Jonathan Lyness, who enchanted audiences in Spring 2017 with the acclaimed production of The Magic Flute, are helping us carve a new path for Mid Wales Opera designed to connect opera with more people.

Experience opera like never before this autumn as MWO SmallStages presents a brand new version of The Bear, a hilarious one-act comedy classic. We will be visiting small but very special venues across Wales and into the Borders, to bring opera to more people. In Spring 2018 we will be back on the road taking Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin to theatres across Wales and the Borders.

Opera is a captivating form of storytelling; opera is a mix of fantasy, love, tragedy and drama strung together with some of the world’s best-loved and most spellbinding melodies. The vivid storylines are as relevant now as when they were first conceived – it is our job, passion and life’s work to bring this experience to modern audiences and open the doors for everyone to see what it is about opera that captivates people across the world

We believe that opera is for everyone, so why not try it out and join us this autumn for our performance of William Walton’s The Bear – sung in English and part of our SmallStages tour it will give you a taste of what opera can be; lighthearted, lively and lyrical.
