Y Tŵr - Guto Puw

Here's a sneak peek of the rehearsal room and the composer Guto Puw talks about creating Y Tŵr - the opera.

"As the first contemporary operatic work written in the Welsh language – though this is very much the dialect of a village at the foot of the Carneddau – it breaks important new ground"

The Guardian - Rian Evans

Dr Puw has also received a new commission for BBC NOW that will be part of their 90th year celebrations.

The working title is Camouflage and the piece will be premiered by the orchestra under Jac van Steen in Hoddinott Hall on 28 March 2018.
