Summer Performances in Royal Welsh College’s 60th year
 The Royal Welsh College presents its summer edition of Performance, offering something to suit every taste, and the chance to catch our final year students before they leave us and head off into the big wide world of entertainment:

In drama we offer a compelling mix of tragedy, romance and comedy: John Webster’s masterpiece of Jacobean tragedy, The Duchess of Malfi is a dark tale of love, murder, incest and corruption. In my Mouth offers a challenging and stark look at the persecution of women in Renaissance England where breaking silence was punishable in a myriad of imaginative and tortuous ways

Faking, a political comedy based on Molière’s controversial Le Misanthrope, presents a funny and uncomfortably recognisable reflection on modern day obsession with success, media and celebrity

Our Opera students present a double bill with Ravel’s lyrical I’Enfant et les Sortilèges and Puccini’s deeply moving Suor Angelica. A rare chance to catch these contrasting pieces as due to their ambitious nature they are not often staged

Winner of the Royal Welsh College Concerto Prize, pianist Siwan Rhys takes centre stage at St David’s Hall, accompanied by the RWCMD Symphony Orchestra, performing Bartok’s energetic and percussive Piano Concerto No. 1. In the same programme is Berlioz’s Symphony Fantastique, widely regarded as one of the most important and representative pieces of the early Romantic period

Our award-winning Theatre Design department moves centre stage in June for its annual exhibition of designs, models and costumes for theatre, opera and dance. These are the designers of the future – catch their work on display before the show transfers to London

Legend of the Golden Swans is this year’s much-anticipated fusion of puppetry, music and drama and will be performed at St Fagan’s Castle. Gods, mortals, birds, animals come together in this beautiful and often surprising tale of humour, humanity and wonder. A magical annual experience that enthralls adults and children alike
