Scare Yourself Senseless
For a gripping theatre experience, you’ll want to see Stephen Mallatratt’s adaption of the Susan Hill novel, The Woman in Black.
The Woman in Black has seen many versions over the years. It was showing on the West End for 25 years and has been made into a film, so Swansea had to get a taste of the action.
Described as ‘gripping’ and ‘thrilling’ we would be surprised if you didn’t end up screaming while watching this cleverly created play.
23rd Feb – 28th Feb, matinees and evening shows, £13.00 to £23.00
Swansea will be brought to life with plenty of colour and song this April, with a one night only production of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly.
Opera & Ballet International proudly present this Ellen Kent production starring Korean soprano Elena Dee and the Japanese Miki Mori. Madama Butterfly is one of the world’s most popular operas and this version won’t disappoint.
25th Apr, £15.00 to £33.00
See Something Unusual
Cirque Berserk at Swansea Grand Theatre will shock and amaze you. With four sold-out years at London Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland and a nationwide tour, this contemporary circus show is bringing its danger-filled stunts, and classic circus skills to the Welsh population.
2nd Mar – 3rd Mar, various times, £16.00 to £22.00
