"The food was excellent and my seafood starter and pork belly main were works of art as well as being delicious. A nice touch, they save your table for the interval if you haven't had time for dessert or want a drink. The restaurant was full but service was efficient and pleasant from Oscar our waiter.

We will definitely return next time we go to Mayflower Theatre."

La bohème | 26 & 28 April 2017

When Annabel Arden’s sensitive and insightful production was first performed in 2012, it was welcomed with open arms by both audiences and critics. It’s a vivid portrait of bohemian life in Paris, enhanced with atmospheric projections. This production makes us think we are meeting Mimì, Rodolfo and friends for the first time, even if we’ve seen this utterly romantic opera before.

Madam Butterfly | 27 & 29 April 2017

Joachim Herz’s Madam Butterfly has been with Welsh National Opera for over three decades and with good reason. It’s a classic, traditional staging of this much-loved opera. While being completely faithful to the composer’s intentions it also critiques imperialism to powerful effect. Each scene looks like a sepia photograph through which we glimpse a vanished world.
