Roméo et Juliette by Gounod

When Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo starred opposite each other in Manon at the Met in 2015, the New York Times said, “the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Damrau and Grigolo are on stage together.” Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers, in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation. Bartlett Sher’s new production has already won acclaim for its vivid 18th century milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the sumptuous score.

Directed by Tom Wallwork


A hilarious, traditional farce set in the convent of Sisters of Perpetual Sewing. Two reporters go undercover to investigate rumours that wine is secretly being made by the nuns to keep the doors of the convent open. Their turning up coincides with the arrival of a new nun, and the wine making is also a secret from others in the order, so it isn’t long before confusion, paranoia and the wine set in.

Il Trovatore

Il Trovatore

International superstars Vitaliy Bilyy, Anita Rachvelishvili, Lianna Haroutounian and Gregory Kunde lead a superb cast of world-class singers in this Verdi classic.

Il Trovatore is one of the great operas of the Romantic period, a story of passion and blood, love and vengeance, disaster and murder.

This new atmospheric and poetic staging by director David Bösch puts the story of passion against the backdrop of war. Fire and snow in the landscape echo the cruelty and love of the story: soldiers and gypsies clash, a mother reveals a terrible secret and two men are engaged in a deadly fight for one woman. The famous Anvil Chorus is just one of the highlights of Verdi’s exceptionally fine music, which captures the shifting emotions of the drama through impassioned love duets, fiery solos and stirring choruses.

Storytelling: Our Native Tongue

2017 is the Year of Legends in Wales. So why not kickstart the year by getting a story or two under your belt. Telling stories about our lives is something we all do naturally. Some are better at it than others but it is a capacity that can be improved. We’ll start with personal anecdote and move up to legend and myth. Having a go, learning how to learn a story, finding out what’s essential, keeping your listeners' interest, gaining confidence, playing with your material, having fun… We will pack all this into our half dozen hours together…

Eric Maddern is an Australian born storyteller, writer, singer-songwriter and retreat manager. He’s written a dozen children’s picture books and his ‘Snowdonia Folk Tales’, which came out in October 2015, is already regarded as a classic in its genre. Over the last 30 years he has created Cae Mabon, a renowned eco-retreat centre in the foothills of Snowdonia.

No special experience or skills are necessary. Just come as you are!
