image for Opera item typeMid Wales Opera – Ravel’s L’heure Espagnole at Llanfyllin

Opera, Fri 9 Nov 2018, £8-£10




Autumn 2018 sees Mid Wales Opera back on the road with the company’s second SmallStages tour, Ravel’s exhilarating one-act bedroom farce, A Spanish Hour (L’heure espagnole). Venue: Theatr Llwyn, Llanfyllin High School, Llanfyllin SY22 5BJ.

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.
