Welsh National Opera:
Khovanshchina


23 Sep - 07 Oct 2017

Tickets: £10 - £48

Running time: Approximately 3 hour 26 minutes with one interval

Age Guidance: No unders 2s

 

Based on true events, Khovanshchina takes us back to 17th century Russia where the country is in turmoil. The noble Khovansky, joins forces with the Old Believers, as they rebel against modern reform being imposed by the Tsar. As personal and political ambitions combine and clash with both constitutional and religious forces, the struggle for power will result in grave consequences.

WNO's Artistic Director David Pountney and new Music Director Tomáš Hanus join forces for this revival of Mussorgsky's epic opera, addressing themes of politics, madness and death as relevant today as back in history. Combined with striking staging and powerful, unforgettable choral music, it promises to be an unmissable event in our Autumn Season.

Sung in Russian, with English and Welsh surtitles.

Welsh National Opera:</br>Eugene Onegin

Tatyana is a young country girl convinced that the dashing Onegin is the man of her dreams. When she declares her devotion to him via a love letter, he rejects and humiliates her. Onegin then flirts with Tatyana's older, engaged sister setting off a tragic chain of events - a tale of how unrequited love and the ways of high society can catastrophically collide.

Welsh National Opera:</br>From the House of the Dead

Set in a claustrophobic Siberian prison, David Pountney's production of From the House of the Dead is a compelling collage of the in-mates' stories as they recount why they ended up in jail.

Welsh National Opera:</br>Die Fledermaus

Welsh National Opera:
Die Fledermaus

Johann Strauss II

14 Oct 17

It takes a hard heart not to be swept along by Die Fledermaus. It might be nonsense but it's wonderful, frothy, life-affirming nonsense.
