Welsh National Opera bring an unforgettable night of opera favourites to the concert stage.
Whether an opera enthusiast or curious to give it a go, take a seat and join us on a journey through some of the best-known pieces in the operatic world, which are more familiar than you might think.
Enjoy a wealth of delightful arias, from the beautifully exquisite O mio babbino caro (Gianni Schicchi) to the instantly recognisable La donna è mobile (Rigoletto), plus sublime choral and orchestral numbers from other great operas. The evening will feature music regularly heard in popular culture from Mozart to Verdi, Puccini, Britten and more – the ultimate operatic pick-and-mix.
