The second half of the 2015/16 opera season kicks off in March, and it promises to be truly exciting and invigorating, with a wide variety of different performances bound to captivate its audiences. For a wonderful evening (or two or three!) of culture and incredible voices, you need head no further than the Venue Cymru in Llandudno.
The Welsh National Opera has been stunning audiences since 1943, and plays host to some of the finest voices on the planet, offering up truly magical performances all across the world. Their three performances for Spring 2016 are entirely new productions, meaning that you are guaranteed to see something dazzling that you’ve never seen before.
What are those productions, we hear you ask. First of all, there is Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, taking place on Tuesday 8th and Friday 11th March. Then there is Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, which you can enjoy on Wednesday 9th and Saturday 12th. Lastly, you can also take in Figaro Gets a Divorce by Langer and Pountney, which is being performed on Thursday 10th March. Three incredible shows to choose from.
Venue Cymru is found in Llandudno, it is well signposted in Llandudno.

Known as “the Queen of the Welsh Resorts” since the middle of the 19th century, Llandudno is the largest seaside resort town in Wales. Characterised by the long promenade overlooked by the rows of Victorian buildings which make up the South Parade the architecture certainly lives up to this title. The town has 2 popular beaches, North Shore and West Shore.
With arguably the best range of ales in all of North Wales, the Conwy Brewery has already become a firm favourite of drinkers both in the local area and further afield. They specialise in high quality, conditioned ales, both in cask and in bottles.
Conwy Castle is easily the most spectacular of all the castles in North Wales (and cost the most to build, too!). The castle was built for Edward I by Master James of St George, and is one of the most impressive surviving medieval fortifications in Britain.
When you only need space for 3 people or less then these cottages will suit you. We have a range of such properties across North Wales.
Find somewhere to let in town. Towns offer the convenience of shops, restaurants and other ammenities whilst you're never far from the countryside.
Take a walk to the end of the pier, make sand castles on the beach, ride the tram or a cable car to the top of the Great Orme and treat yourself to a meal at one of the many restaurants. Llandudno has a lot to offer and is a great base for exploring North Wales.
