Rhondda Rips It Up!

26th June 2018 7:30 pm

 

Director: Caroline Clegg
Conductor: Nicola Rose

Welsh National Opera presents an uproarious comic entertainment

Rhondda Rips It Up! is a riotous romp through the life of Margaret Haig Thomas (Lady Rhondda), the Newport suffragette whose activities paved the way for women’s rights in the personal, professional and political worlds.

Performed in a classic music hall style, with original songs inspired by the suffragette slogans, this tongue-in-cheek production takes you on a whirlwind tour of the inspiring activist’s mission.

We’re guided through the story by our very own Emcee played by Lesley Garrett, as Lady Rhondda (Madeleine Shaw) takes on politicians, peers and a post box as she marches towards the House of Lords.
