On Friday 16 March, Mid Wales Opera will be presenting a BSL-interpreted performance of Eugene Onegin at The Riverfront.
Although complemented by Tchaikovsky’s breathtaking music, the story of Eugene Onegin stands on its own as a thrilling piece of theatre: Pushkin’s compelling and heartbreaking tale is a stunning exploration of love, death, life and convention.

SaveWILG – Nathan Lee Davies
Education Gallery, Theatr Clwyd
Exhibition open January 24th – February 12th 2018
Private view event by invitation only – 2nd February 2018 @ 3-5pm
A group of creative practitioners and activists – led by Wrexham-based artist Nathan Lee Davies – have been working together on a campaign to encourage the Welsh Government to reconsider their current plans for changes to the Welsh Independent Living Grant (WILG). The artist is keen to raise awareness of the additional support that the grant offers, enabling individuals with the greatest needs to live fulfilling lives. The project is backed by Disability Arts Cymru (DAC) and supported as part of the DAC Extra mentoring programme; which enables Wales-based disabled artists to work with some of Wales’ most exciting arts venues and to receive professional guidance from sector leading professionals.
The #SaveWILG exhibition is a collection of visual art and poetry produced by a number of artists and writers from across the UK; focusing on ‘independent living’ as a central theme of investigation. The exhibition will open on January 24th at 9am in the Education Gallery at Theatr Clwyd and will continue until February 12th. Please come along to show your support for this campaign and to enjoy the powerful and emotive art created by people with passion and determination that are united in the belief that disabled lives matter.
