The Welsh National Opera Announce Further Dates for 2010 UK Tour - Tickets Now/ 12th April
You may be more familiar with the ENO (English National Opera) but Wales has been touring the UK with its own version for over 60 years. Currently, the WNO (Welsh National Opera) employs 250 top-quality opera singers and extras and covers much of the country with award-winning productions as part of a seemingly endless jaunt around the major cities in the UK, although their true base is at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff.
The company has just announced another brace of tickets and venues for later this year, with Liverpool and Oxford on sale from 10am today. Their chosen operas for the autumn season are Beethoven's only opera, 'Fidelio', Richard Strauss' epic 'Ariadne auf Naxos' and Mozart's influential 'The Magic Flute', three highly-regarded works. Each trio of operas will be performed as a short residency in larger venues including the familiar Wales Millenium Centre in Cardiff (various dates between 17th September - 9th October), Liverpool's Empire (3rd - 6th November), Birmingham's Hippodrome (9th - 13th November), Llandudno's Venue Cymru (18th - 20th November), Southampton's Mayflower (23rd - 27th November) and Oxford's New Theatre (30th November - 4th December).
Tickets for the Oxford dates went on sale this morning and start at £15 - those for the Liverpool dates go on sale Monday 12th April.
If you can't wait to see them in action, The WNO will also be playing the Bristol Hippodrome from 20th to 24th April, performing Mozart's 'The Abduction from the Seraglio' (set on the Orient Express), Puccini's 'Tosca' and Bizet's 'Carmen'.
