Alive and Kicking
There's little more than 24 hours to go until the curtain goes up on Dragon Opera’r Ddraig's The Marriage of Figaro. The award winning company, fairly unique in being run by young people for the benefit of young people, is based at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff. It aims to show audiences usually inclined to running 26 miles and 385 yards at the thought of going to the opera that it isn't the snore-fest it's sometimes made out to be.
Running for four performances (Feb 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th) at The Gate, the cast and crew are drawn mainly, though not exclusively, from students at RWCMD. Tickets are an affordable £10 (£6 concessions) and are available by ringing 02920 48 33 44 or by following this link.
