Have your say

WELSH National Opera are on the road just now, spreading their voices far and wide for their spring season, and on Tuesday they land here in the new city.

You can be greedy too if you like, with not one, nor two, but a trio of pieces being staged.

Set in 19th century Paris, Canadian soprano Joyce El-Khoury will be making her European debut in the role of Violetta in the beautiful period production.

Violetta’s aspirations are cruelly defeated by social convention, and she will have to make the ultimate sacrifice for love....

La Traviata shows on Tuesday, and again next Friday evening, at 7.15pm.

Or can MK T and WNO tempt you with the story of one of the most quarrelsome couples in opera – Beatrice and Benedict?

Berlioz’s opera took inspiration from the Bard’s Much Ado About Nothing.

Will Beatrice and Benedict’s tempestuous love affair be destroyed by their fueding repartee, or will they make it to the altar on time?

Join your lead voices Sara Fulgoni and Robin Tritschler for the answers on Wednesday evening, at 7.15pm.

Next Thursday and Saturday Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro (March 22 and 24) will transport the viewer back to the 1930s.

Figaro and Suzanna are ready for their big day, but mistaken identities and surprise revelations mean this day will never be forgotten...

If you are intent on booking in for this one, be aware that there is a slightly earlier start time of 7pm, for Figaro.

Three stories, three matters of the heart and each one seen from the perspective of the fairer sex.

Tickets start at £17 and rise to £47 for performances.
