Special 50th anniversary shows are heading to Bristol next month.

Welsh National Opera (WNO) will mark half a century of performing at the Hippodrome, in St Augustines Parade, with four shows from April 11-14.

Entitled Rabble Rousers, it will feature a new production of Verdi’s La Forza Del Destino alongside revivals of Puccini’s Tosca and Mozart’s Don Giovanni, an opera they performed on their first visit to the Hippodrome, in March 1968.

WNO’s managing director, Leonora Thomson, is looking forward to returning to the city.

She said: “The company has enjoyed an excellent relationship with Bristol and its audiences over the years.

“We look forward to continuing this special connection for many years to come.”

Shows start at 6.30, 7 or 7.15pm.

Tickets, from £14.90, are avialable from www.atgtickets.com/bristol or 08448 713012.
