Event Info

Since the beginning of time nature has migrated effortlessly to brave the elements and improve on circumstance, but when it comes to the human race it always seems more complicated.

Through a series of six stories, by six writers from diverse backgrounds, Welsh National Opera’s new opera explores the highs and lows of migration: from the migration of birds to the sailing of The Mayflower 400 years ago; from the story of an Afro-Caribbean slave in Bristol to the experience of Indian doctors working in the NHS.

Migrations is a hugely ambitious new opera from British composer Will Todd. An expanded WNO Orchestra is joined by a cast of 100 performers, including a gospel choir, Bollywood dancers and a children’s chorus. This is epic drama on a huge scale, and an unmissable live experience.
