“We’ll go up, you and me, together, hand in hand, no fear, no regrets.”

Y Tŵr explores the journey of two people bound together through life’s all too brief struggle, from youth to old-age, from love to despair, from desire to disillusionment. An intense and searching opera from the UK’s leading new opera company and the Welsh-language national theatre company, based on the work of one of Wales’ most important playwrights. Personal and universal. Particular and timeless.

Sung in Welsh with English surtitles.
