WNO is delighted to announce a new partnership with Torbay Council. This three-year residency will use music and voice workshops to inspire and engage all sections of the Torbay community from 6 year-olds to pensioner groups. There will also be the opportunity to see our Orchestra perform in concert from £10 a ticket.
Our Chief Executive and Artistic Director, David Pountney, said: "WNO has a long association with Bristol and Plymouth where we tour regularly and we are delighted to expand our reach in the West Country. It is not easy to provide cultural stimulus to all areas of the UK, particularly in today’s London-centric climate, so we are thrilled to be able to bring high-level music making to the people of Torbay, and look forward to a fruitful and creative relationship."
