What’s on this season

Mid Wales Opera - Mrs Peachum's Guide to Love and Marriage

Date: Saturday, 23rd November, 7.30pm
Location: SpArc Theatre, Bishops Castle
Join Mrs Peachum and her daughter Polly in a rumbustious tragicomic tale of love, loyalty & London gin.

Following last year’s sell-out of ‘A Spanish Hour’ here’s opera again on your doorstep as MWO’s SmallStages team romps onto stage with a radical reworking of John Gay’s 1728 work The Beggar’s Opera. Join Mrs Peachum, her daughter Polly and the Beggar himself in their bawdy, ballsy take on relationships and the relative virtues of virginity.

With MWO’s Ensemble and melodies both familiar and new, from Lillibolero to Greensleeves, the characters may live in the gutter but are musically looking to the stars.

After the interval, join the team for a medley of delights exploring love and marriage in all its forms.
