Carlo Rizzi conducts the orchestra of Welsh National Opera on Friday 15 November 2019 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (RWCMD). The concert will feature young singers from RWCMD's David Seligman Opera School in scenes and arias from opera, and the concert takes place in RWCMD's Dora Stoutzker Hall.

The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama was founded in 1949 as the Cardiff College of Music, and was originally housed in Cardiff Castle, and is now in purpose built premises in Bute Park. Following an international competition, a new expansion designed by BFLS opened in 2011 featuring an acoustically excellent 450‐seat chamber recital hall (the ‘Dora Stoutzker Hall’), a 180‐ seat theatre (the ‘Richard Burton Theatre’), four rehearsal studios, an exhibition gallery (the ‘Linbury Gallery’) as well as generous foyer areas, a terrace overlooking Bute Park and a new Café Bar.
