Want to see what happens when the opera comes to town?
As part of the Russia 17 series of events marking the centenary of the Revolution, WNO is performing a season of Russian repertoire; we have also teamed up with National Museum Cardiff to offer a family day with a difference, so you can find out more about the productions. You can see what really happens when the opera comes to town and take a look behind the scenes of an internationally touring opera company. So why not come along and take part in a musical day with a difference? It’s suitable for the whole family and Family Activities include: music sessions, opera make-up demos, prop making, orchestral and singing games, drumming workshops (no experience required), storytelling workshops, an opera themed treasure hunt and a pop-up opera with soloists from WNO.
