Mid Wales Opera – Il Tabarro

Event has passed.
Duration: 100 minutes

Mid Wales Opera presents Puccini’s passionate late masterpiece Il tabarro, or ‘The Cloak’. Set on the banks of the Seine, this one act opera tells the short story of the barge owner Michele who suspects his young wife Giorgetta of being unfaithful. Packed with side plots and characters, and with allusions to the sights and sounds of 1900s Paris, the opera reaches its dramatic conclusion when Michele unexpectedly catches his wife’s lover at the strike of a match. With alluring melodies and incisive pace, Il tabarro sees the great opera composer at the very pinnacle of his powers.

MWO’s new production features 6 singers and 4 musicians, with a new English translation by Richard Studer and a new chamber arrangement by Jonathan Lyness. The opera will be followed by a second half continuing the Parisian theme with a mix of entertaining musical items featuring all of our talented singers and musicians.
