Production details

In Summer 2019, Welsh National Opera addresses the issues of justice, freedom and human rights through a season of operas, debates, discussions, exhibitions and digital projects. At the heart of their FREEDOM Season are four semi-staged operas across three evenings in the Donald Gordon Theatre and one fully-staged opera in the Weston Studio. Gian Carlo Menotti's 1950 work The Consul ? about the desperate wait for a visa ? could not be more topical. Donald Gordon Theatre
