My Ladies, Lords and Gentlemen! WNO cordially invites you to the World Premiere of the rip-roaring, uproarious musical comedy 'Rhondda Rips It Up!' created for your delectation by the illustrious Ms Elena Langer (composer and suffragette) and the inimitable Ms Emma Jenkins (librettist and suffragette).

Join us on an unforgettable journey through the life and adventures of unsung heroine of the Welsh Suffrage movement, Margaret Haig Thomas, the Viscountess Rhondda. In this thigh-slapping romp through the world of suffrage and song, told through the lens of music-hall, you will be guided through the story by our very own Emcee (Lesley Garrett) following the escapades of Lady Rhondda (Madeleine Shaw) and her brave battalion of suffragettes as they fearlessly takes on Peers, politicians and post-boxes in their struggle for women’s rights.

    “…you know, there’s nothing like someone cutting your dad in two for clearing the mind.”   A slick and brutal black comedy from Jez Butterworth (Jerusalem). In the criminal underworld of 1950’s London, violent gang warfare erupts in the rock’n’roll club scene as rivals compete – and kill – for control of the lucrative new teen sensation ‘Silver Johnny’.

    It’s a simple thing that Princess Salomé wants – a kiss from the mouth of John the Baptist.  There are no lengths she won’t go to in order to get what she wants. And now, if she can bend her lecherous stepfather King Herod to her will, she has her opportunity – but at what terrible cost?   Literary legend Oscar Wilde turns this biblical tale to a fierce drama of lust, seduction and reve...
