Music, laughter, rhymes, rhythms and repetitions together with puppetry, paint, water and mud... not to mention a bear – make We’re Going on a Bear Hunt the perfect theatrical outing for all young families.

Phenomenal plays

From comedy to an epic Welsh fantasia, we’ve got something for all tastes:

Mischief return with another catastrophic disaster in Peter Pan Goes Wrong, their riotous spin on a timeless classic. Brace yourselves for an awfully big adventure!

Michael Sheen plays the titular character in Nye, our co-production with the National Theatre. This new play by Tim Price is a surreal and spectacular journey through the life and legacy of the man who transformed the welfare state.

Dazzling Dance

A magical adaptation and a meta dance comedy:

Based on the classic Tim Burton movie and featuring the hauntingly beautiful music of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, Matthew Bourne and his New Adventures Company return with Edward Scissorhands, the witty, bittersweet story of an incomplete boy left alone in a strange new world.

Following their knock-out Peaky Blinders tour, Death Trap is your next chance to see Rambert’s brilliant and daring dancers. The show will consist of two short pieces which are darkly funny and packed with originality.

Magical Musicals

A hell-raising story of an infamous pair, a remarkable true story and a cultural phenomenon:

Discover the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire nation in Bonnie & Clyde, ready to take Cardiff by storm after two seasons in the West End.

Come From Away shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11.

With a score blending hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, who helped shape the very foundations of the America we know today.

Outstanding opera

Mozart, Britten and opera favourites:

Go back to school with Welsh National Opera's brand-new production of Mozart’s comic opera Così fan tutte. Set in the early 1970s, four sixth formers discover that falling in love can be incredible, awkward, and complicated in this coming-of-age tale.

Whether an opera enthusiast or curious to give it a go, join WNO for Opera Favourites and go on a journey through some of the best-known pieces in the operatic world, which are more familiar than you might think.

Inspired by the original novella, Death in Venice comes to life in this new production from WNO, creating images of ravishing beauty, as well as exploring the grotesque hidden beneath the search for the sublime.
