A new opera based on the play by Gwenlyn Parry
“We'll go up, you and me, together, hand in hand, no fear, no regrets.”
Y Tŵr is an intimate story of love and life from the UK’s leading new opera company and the Welsh-language national theatre, based on the work of one of Wales’ most important playwrights.
Exploring the extremes of emotion experienced by two lovers over the course of a lifetime together, Gwenlyn Parry’s acclaimed play is brought to new life in the form of a touching and lyrical new opera by composer Guto Puw and singer-songwriter-playwright Gwyneth Glyn.
Sung in Welsh with English surtitles.
