Y Tŵr – a contemporary Welsh opera

A conversation between Guto Pryderi Puw and Arwel Gruffydd,

chaired by Iwan Llywelyn Jones

Why choose Y Tŵr? What were the challenges faced in setting one of the most iconic Welsh plays to music? The answers to these questions, and many more, will be revealed in this conversation between Guto Pryderi Puw (composer of Y Tŵr and Senior Lecturer at the Music Department, Bangor University) and Arwel Gruffydd (Artistic Director of Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru). Following the recent successful tour in a co-production between Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Music Theatre Wales, which was very well-received in the national press, this is an opportunity to learn more about the opera in a musical and theatre context. There will also be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions.
