Some time ago, Gabriel von Eisenstein went with
his friend Dr Falke to a fancy dress party. On their way back, Eisenstein left Falke on his own, sleeping peacefully. When he awoke it was daylight and he had to make his way home dressed in his bat’s costume, accompanied by all the jeering urchins in town. He has never forgotten this humiliation.

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. John Copley's production is as opulent as a Viennese chocolate cake. Its choc-full of splendour, posh frocks and masks and warm comedy.

Welsh National Opera:</br>Der Rosenkavalier

Welsh National Opera:
Der Rosenkavalier

Richard Strauss

03 Jun - 17 Jun 17

The Marschallin comes to terms with the onward passage of time as her young lover falls for another. Richard Strauss's sumptuous opera offers comedy and poignant drama in equal measure.

Welsh National Opera:</br>Khovanshchina

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.

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.
