Information

Welsh National Opera continue their journey into musical theatre following last year’s success Sweeney Todd with a new production of the classic musical Kiss Me Kate.

1940s Baltimore. And it’s op’nin’ night of a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew. Rehearsals are over, costumes donned and there’s a 10 minute curtain call.

What you’re about to witness is a whole lot more than Shakespeare’s comic love story…

Leading lady and superstar Lilli Vanessi is the ex-wife of the show’s charming leading man, Fred Graham. Fred has a fondness for flirtatious fresh-face, Lois Lane. Meanwhile, Lois’ boyfriend Bill is getting himself into debt (under Fred’s name) which leads to hairy encounters with a pair of foolhardy gangsters. The stories unfold on and off-stage, comically intertwined in Cole Porter’s classic musical.

Full of wit, dance, show business and hit songs including ‘Another Op’nin’, Another Show’, ‘Brush Up Your Shakespeare’ and ‘Always True to You in My Fashion’, Kiss Me, Kate will leave any Tom, Dick or Harry grinning from ear to ear.

Co-production with Opera North.
