MID WALES OPERA get back on the road – Celebrating the return of live music

Sparc Theatre is so thrilled to be hosting MWO for their open air summer concerts- they are just sneaking over the boarder one time to perform for us!

Bishop’s Castle Community College has kindly given us permission to use the playing  field in front of Sparc as you entre the site for the performances.

Tickets can only be booked by emailing admin@midwalesopera.co.uk

 Powys’ very own opera company Mid Wales Opera will be back on the road in May  and June with a series of outdoor, Covid safe performances celebrating the return of live music.

MWO have been busy lining up singers and musicians, and some stunning outdoor venues, for their pop up concerts in May and June.

Current Covid regulations mean each performance will be limited tickets, and there will be three 40 minute shows per day.

Tickets can only be booked by emailing admin@midwalesopera.co.uk.

Or phone 07764 171259

Each weekend’s concerts will feature a different musical programme and combination of professional performers. MWO’s Music Director Jonathan Lyness told us

“These short concerts will feature an eclectic mix of joyful, entertaining and uplifting musical treats, from the world of song, opera and cabaret and much else besides – a chance for us all to remember and celebrate the importance of live classical music, and go home feeling all the better for it!”

MWO were on tour with their production of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro when the first lockdown happened in March 2020, and like many arts organisations they have managed to keep going through a mix of digital programming and pop up concerts when possible, but are determined to get back to presenting live music.

Their Executive Director Lydia Bassett told us:

“MWO has always been about bringing high quality live opera and classical music to places where it wouldn’t normally be performed. We’re delighted to be able to support singers and musicians, many of whom have struggled with little or no work during the pandemic, and bring live music back to audiences across rural Wales by performing outdoors in carefully controlled spaces right across the country. We can’t wait to get back on the road”.

The first performance at The Judge’s Lodging, Presteigne on Saturday May 15th has already sold out

Tickets can only be booked by emailing admin@midwalesopera.co.uk.
