EUGENE ONEGIN - Mid Wales Opera

Friday 16 March at 7.30pm

Tickets - £17, concessions - £15

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.

Filled with breath-taking arias including Tatyana’s great letter scene, a tour de force ofthe soprano repertoire, the poignant tale contrasts the simplicity of countrylife with the sophisticated excesses of Russia’s pre-revolutionary court and tells of the fated love between the innocent Tatyana and the world-weary cynic Onegin.

A fabulous cast includes rising new stars and internationally recognised performers. Ledby MWO’s Artistic Directors Richard Studer and Jonathan Lyness, and accompanied by the brilliant Ensemble Cymru, this new production will ensure audiences are left enthralled and deeply moved.

 

Cyfuna EugeneOnegin hanes nerthol a thorcalonnus Pushkin gyda thelynegiaeth ysgubolTchaikovsky mewn ymchwiliad syfrdanol o gariad, marwolaeth, bywyd achonfensiwn.

Mae'r hanesingol, sy'n llawn ariâu rhyfeddol gan gynnwys golygfa wych Tatyana am yllythyr, gorchest repertoire y soprano, yn cyferbynnu symlrwydd bywyd cefngwlad â gormodedd soffistigedig llys cyn-chwyldroadol Rwsia ac yn dweud hanes ycariad tynghedlon rhwng Tatyana ddiniwed a'r sinig lluddedig Onegin.

Mae'r castgwych yn cynnwys sêr newydd a pherfformwyr rhyngwladol cydnabyddedig. Arweiniry perfformiad gan Gyfarwyddwyr Artistig OCC, Richard Studer a Jonathan Lyness,i gyfeiliant Ensemble Cymru. Bydd y cynhyrchiad newydd hwn yn sicrhau bodcynulleidfaoedd yn cael eu swyno a'u cyffroi i'w craidd.

RHONDDA RIPS IT UP!

Thursday 7 June at 7.30pm 

Tickets - £18, concessions - £15

Summer 2018 sees the latest brand new commission by Welsh National Opera. Rhondda Rips It Up! will tell the story of an inspirational, but possibly unsung Welsh heroine, Margaret Haig Thomas (Lady Rhondda), and marks the centenary of the women’s partial Suffrage Bill, which enabled all men and some women over the age of 30 to vote for the first time.

Lady Rhondda’s actions paved the way for women’s rights in the personal, professional and political worlds. She was involved in high profile protests, jailed for planting a bomb in a Newport postbox and then, after surviving the sinking of the RMS Lusitania, fought for the right to be allowed to take her late father’s seat in the House of Lords.
