About Mid Wales Opera View Mid Wales Opera Past Productions

Founded in 1988, Mid Wales Opera has established itself as one of the foremost British touring opera companies. Recipient of various national awards, including two Prudential Opera Awards for "excellence, creativity, innovation and accessibility", Mid Wales Opera's productions have now been performed in over eighty venues in Great Britain and Ireland.

Full scale productions of major operas such as Turandot, Aida, Carmen and Madama Butterfly have included international soloists from Covent Garden and the English, Welsh and Scottish National Opera companies. The specially adapted touring productions of more intimate operas have proved immensely popular in an ever increasing number of venues. MWO now tours to a wider range of theatres than any other opera company in Great Britain, from the elegant Opera House at Buxton to the intimate theatre at Pontardawe. The Company receives enthusiastic receptions at all venues and its annual visit is eagerly anticipated by opera-lovers throughout the country.

You can find out more about the history of MWO from its founders Keith Darlington & Barbara McGuire in this extended article written by Keith for the commemorative #MWO25 Carmen programme. Read on

2017 sees two shows opening in February and touring till May – Handel’s Semele in collaboration with Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and in association with the Academy of Ancient Music and Mozart’s The Magic Flute, the first production by Mid Wales Opera’s new Artistic team of Richard Studer and Jonathan Lyness.  With a micro-chamber opera tour of Walton’s The Bear in November and a residency in a school in Montgomeryshire in June, 2017 is looking to be the busiest year ever for the company.
