Welsh National Opera Tour Dates

April 15, 2018

 

I am delighted to be playing for the World Premiere of the rip-roaring, uproarious musical comedy Rhondda Rips It Up!

 

Welsh National Opera promise to take you on an unforgettable journey through the life and adventures of that unsung heroine of the Welsh Suffrage movement, Margaret Haig Thomas, the Viscountess Rhondda.

 

 

 

Suffragette, activist and entrepreneur, Newport's Lady Rhondda paved the way for the equal rights for women. As well as campaigning tirelessly for women’s suffrage, she became the lightning rod for women’s efforts during WW1, survived the sinking of the Lusitania and created the radical feminist magazine Time and Tide. Her indefatigable efforts and endeavours were finally rewarded when, in 1918, women over the age of 30 were enfranchised.

 

This thigh-slapping romp through the world of suffrage and song is told through the lens of music-hall and fittingly sports an all-female cast and creative team. The audience will be guided through the story by our very own Emcee (Lesley Garrett) following the escapades of Lady Rhondda (Madeleine Shaw) and her brave battalion of suffragettes as they fearlessly takes on Peers, politicians and post-boxes in their struggle for women’s rights.

Thursday, June 7, 2018 - Wednesday, November 21, 2018

 

Rhondda Rips It Up! will premiere at The Riverfront, Newport in Newport on 7 June.
