Perthyn - a new digital opera

Perthyn is the second Future Directions Digital Opera from Music Theatre Wales created during 2023, in partnership with Hijinx Theatre. Future Directions is a young people's programme that explores how opera can become a powerfully expressive form for people of all backgrounds and identities. Working in collaboration with professional artists, the young, neurodiverse group of people devise and make a new opera, exploring their ideas and learning from and inspiring each other and the supporting artists.

For this project, Music Theatre Wales brought together theatre maker and dramaturg Jain Boon, music maker Mari Mathias, singer Llio Evans and film maker Gavin Porter to work together with the young participants to create a new and original work in three movements.
