Nye & Jennie

  • 17th October 2018
  • 13:30
  • £12 Full / £10 Concessions

Aneurin Bevan and Jennie Lee were comrades and flatmates who together fought and preached for socialism as they saw it; he the Tredegar firebrand on the Labour backbenches, she the miner's daughter from Fife who became a Socialist MP before she was old enough to vote.

Then they were married; he deeply in love with her; she on the rebound from a tragic love affair. Both of them were loved and loathed by their fellow MP's; he the Bollinger Bolshevik; she his Lady Macbeth, the dark angel at his shoulder. Life together unfolded through the desolate war years, the trials of founding the NHS, and the vicious internal feuds of the 1950's. But as it did so their love deepened and matured.

This is the story of a partnership that became one of the outstanding political marriages of the twentieth century.

Ravel's L'Heure Espagnole

Autumn 2018 sees Mid Wales Opera back on the road with Ravel’s exhilarating one-act bedroom farce, A Spanish Hour (L’heure espagnole). 

First performed in Paris in 1911, L’heure espagnole is set in a clock shop in Toledo, central Spain. It follows the fortunes of Torquemada, the hardworking clockmaker, as, during the course of one hot afternoon, his young wife Concepción negotiates her way through her collection of ridiculous lovers. Ravel’s music is bursting with hummable melodies, lively habanera dances and other Spanish folk song elements to get audiences buzzing. 

This is opera for everyone - featuring an outstanding cast of five young singers as well as four brilliant musicians, performing a new English translation by our Artistic Director Richard Studer and a new arrangement of Ravel’s exotic score created by our Music Director Jonathan Lyness.
