WNO Youth Opera

Britten and Auden’s satirical take on the American dream returns to the stage in a colourful new production. To mark the centenary of the birth of this great composer, we present the first performances by the acclaimed Welsh National Opera Youth Opera in the Donald Gordon Theatre. This spectacular staging includes the forces of Only Boys Aloud and Stephen Fry as the voice of Paul Bunyan.

If you have yet to experience the vibrancy and excellence of WNO Youth Opera, Paul Bunyan is the perfect opportunity. Propelled forward by the dramatic presence of the chorus, Britten’s operetta plays to the strengths of this exceptional ensemble.

Paul Bunyan is supported by the Britten-Pears Foundation, David Seligman OBE & Philippa Seligman with the Seligman Gift, The Schafer Bursary, Paul & Marie Carson, The Gibbs Charitable Trust, The N Smith Charitable Settlement and Angus Allnatt Charitable Foundation, The Idlewild Trust, and The Atlantic Foundation.

Also supported by the WNO Partnership.

"Paul Bunyan is an opera I have loved for years - Britten's music is witty and surprising. Watching the Youth Opera bring it to life is going to be really thrilling for me."

Rhian Hutchings, WNO MAX Director

Further performance: 24th August

Music Theatre Wales

Music: Mark-Anthony Turnage
Based on the play by Steven Berkoff

Cast

Eddy: Marcus Farnsworth
Dad: Gwion Thomas
Mum: Sally Silver
Wife: Louise Winter

Conductor: Michael Rafferty
Director: Michael McCarthy
Design: Simon Banham
Lighting Design: Ace McCarron

The return of our award-winning production of Mark-Anthony Turnage’s first opera, a brilliant and provocative work that exploded onto the stage in 1988.

Based on the play by Steven Berkoff, Greek catapults us into the seedy, boozy East End London world of Eddy and his family.

Inspired by Berkoff’s incendiary combination of poetry, physical theatre and knockabout humour, Turnage had no qualms in tearing up the rule book and producing a ground-breaking contemporary classic: an opera fizzing with high voltage energy and raw emotion.

“blisteringly realised by Music Theatre Wales ... this opera has lost none of its power. All the music’s edges are still razor-sharp, with rap and free jazz cutting into the urban angst and wistful lyricism.” Daily Telegraph

“Marcus Farnsworth is the most convincing Eddy I’ve ever seen; he embodies the anguished, violently truth-seeking youth in a riveting performance. Gwion Thomas is no less engaging as dad, café manager and policemen. And Sally Silver as Eddy’s distraught Mum joins her voice with that of Louise Winter’s sensual Wife to form a two-headed Sphinx of virtuoso terror.” The Times
