Rhondda Rips it Up - T1821721919

Welsh National Opera presents an uproarious comic entertainment. Rhondda Rips It Up! is a riotous romp through the life of Margaret Haig Thomas (Lady Rhondda), the Newport suffragette whose activities paved the way for women's rights in the personal, professional and political worlds. Performed in a classic music hall style, with original songs inspired by the suffragette slogans, this tongue-in-cheek production takes you on a whirlwind tour of the inspiring activist's mission. We're guided through the story by our very own Emcee (Lesley Garrett) as Lady Rhondda (Madeleine Shaw) takes on politicians, peers and a post box as she marches towards the House of Lords.
