Mid Wales Opera presents its first-ever production of Verdi’s Macbeth this March.

Experience a gripping tale of power, manipulation, and tragic descent as Macbeth, a valiant general, succumbs to his wife's persuasion, leading to a ruthless quest for the Scottish throne. Verdi's magnificent score, with its sweeping melodies and intricate harmonies, propels the psychologically thrilling narrative, whilst Act 4 introduces a modern twist with the haunting chorus of refugees.

MWO eagerly looks forward to bring this production to the Torch.

The opera features a huge cast of 17 professional singers, led by Canadian baritone Jean-Kristof Bouton as Macbeth, Welsh soprano Mari Wyn Williams as the demonic Lady Macbeth, Welsh tenor Robyn Lyn Evans as Macduff and Welsh bass baritone Emyr Wyn Jones as Banquo. MWO are joined in the pit by the fabulous Ensemble Cymru, performing conductor Jonathan Lyness’s newly created orchestration.

Visiting the Torch Theatre on Thursday 21 March at 7.30pm, audience members will experience one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays and one of Verdi’s greatest operas of tragedy, ambition and supernatural intrigue.
