Drama The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer Saturday 12 April7pm

House and Theatr Mwldan present The Perth Theatre Company production, The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer by Tim Watts






In a highly imaginative fusion of animation, puppetry, projections, live and recorded music, master storyteller Tim Watts tells the tale of Alvin Sputnik, deep sea explorer and the search for his lost love in the seemingly endless depths of the ocean.

This exquisite multi award-winning one-man show is a unique and charming performance that’s emotional, uplifting, touching and funny – a heart-warming and beautiful experience that’s a remarkable pocket masterpiece of invention, staging and performance. 

On a future Earth whose ice caps have melted, rooftops barely provide escape from the rising waters.  Our lonely hero Alvin, heartbroken after the loss of his beloved wife, hears a TV plea from Earth HQ seeking a daring soul willing to find a lost oasis at the bottom of the sea that might just save humanity. Using a constantly creative, beguiling and quirky blend of live action, puppetry, animation, music and film, Australian genius Tim Watts tells his story of love, loss and quiet heroism with engaging energy and an enchanting magic.

Having charmed audiences worldwide, and received countless five star reviews, Theatr Mwldan and House are delighted to be able to present this gorgeous production on this special tour of Wales and southern England.

Broadcast A Winter's Tale
Monday 28 April7.15pm

ROH Live: A Winter's Tale (Ballet)
Following his delightful full-length ballet Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,  Christopher Wheeldon continues his highly successful collaboration with designer Bob Crowley and composer Joby Talbot to create his first ballet based on a Shakespeare play, the late romance The Winter’s Tale. The story follows the destruction of marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child, and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet through remorse and regret – and after a statue comes miraculously to life – the ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation. It is powerful material for ballet, with a story that allows for the portrayal of intense emotions between and within the characters, and the opportunity for the Company to create not just new central characters but the whole world around them.

There will be a pre-performance talk about the opera and production at 6.15pm, given by the Artistic Director of Swansea City Opera, Brendan Wheatley. (if required, please check with the Manager that it is happening at your venue and at what time) 

What the papers said about our last tours 

 “This company always delivers the goods and when the goods is a deliciously uplifting slice of Mozart it can be very good indeed” North Devon Journal 

“If you like your opera fresh, frothy and funny then Mansfield Palace Theatre was the place to be when the enterprising Swansea City Opera made a return visit with Donizetti’s comic masterpiece ‘Don Pasquale.’…..an evening of excellent entertainment in the best “bel canto” tradition from a quality quartet that delivered on every note in this beautifully staged production in 1840s costumes.” Worksop Guardia.

Tuesday 24 June6.45pm

ROH Live: Manon Lescaut (Opera)


Sung in Italian

This early Puccini masterpiece makes a welcome return to Covent Garden after an absence of over 20 years, in a new production by Jonathan Kent under the baton of Music Director Antonio Pappano. The exciting Latvian soprano Kristine Opolais sings the title role. A consummate Puccini soprano, Opolais caused a sensation as Madama Butterfly in 2011, and with Manon Lescaut, the bold but impressionable heroine, we will see a very different side of her character. She is matched in star power by Jonas Kaufmann as her lover, Des Grieux, and Christopher Maltman as her cynical brother Lescaut. This is a much anticipated new production, and Kent’s vision of a young girl who faces temptation in the big city will surely resonate with today’s audience.

Manon Lescaut: Kristine Opolais, Geronte de Ravoir: Maurizio Muraro,  Lescaut: Christopher Maltman  Edmondo: Benjamin Hulett,  Chevalier des Grieux: Jonas Kaufmann,  Royal Opera Chorus, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Conductor: Antonio Pappano,  Director: Jonathan Kent, Designs: Paul Brown,  Lighting design: Mark Henderson, Choreography: Denni Sayers
