Opera to be screened in The Hayes tomorrow

Opera will be beamed into Cardiff city centre tomorrow, with the first of two screenings from the Royal Opera House in The Hayes this summer.

The performance of Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi will be shown on the big screen at the Cardiff Live Site, with the first act starting at 7.30pm. There will be an interval of 30 minutes between acts two and three, with the show finishing at around 10.30pm.

Conductor Daniele Gatti will lead the performance in London as part of the World Shakespeare Festival.

Falstaff is adapted from two Shakespeare plays, The Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry IV.

Then on July 16, a performance of Metamorphosis: Titian 2012 will also be screened in The Hayes.

Cardiff’s cabinet member for sport leisure and culture Coun Huw Thomas said: “Showing performances by renowned companies such as the Royal Opera House is a wonderful way of utilising the Live Site, and brings great culture to the heart of the city.

“This is a great way for opera and theatre fans, as well as those new to the genre, to enjoy Shakespeare in a unique outdoor setting.”
