Welsh National Opera: Migrations

3 October 2020 - POSTPONED

Donald Gordon Theatre

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Welsh National Opera have taken the difficult decision to postpone the premiere of Will Todd’s new opera Migrations.

We will be contacting ticket bookers as soon as we have a new date confirmed, with details of the options available to them.

Please bear with us and rest assured that we will be in touch with all ticket bookers in due course – you don’t need to do anything. We ask for your patience as we work through a very large number of ticket orders and emails at this time.

Since the beginning of time nature has migrated effortlessly, but when it comes to the human race it always seems more complicated.

Through a series of six stories, by six writers from diverse backgrounds, Welsh National Opera explores migration from multiple angles: from the migration of birds to the sailing of The Mayflower 400 years ago; from the story of an Afro-Caribbean slave in Bristol to the experience of Indian doctors working in the NHS.

Migrations is a hugely ambitious new opera by British composer Will Todd. An expanded WNO Orchestra is joined by a cast of 100 performers, including a gospel choir, Bollywood dancers and a children’s chorus.


Sung in English, with surtitles in English and Welsh
