Christmas spirit has hit the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with a sack full of events from an introduction to the orchestra for families to a unique celebration of Christmas on Broadway.
Families are invited to join the College’s orchestra on Sunday 3 December for an age-old fairy-tale about glass slippers and cruel stepsisters, Cinderella. This family favourite is presented through a mix of music, film and illustrations and is the perfect introduction to the orchestra for all the family. Come along early to our Christmas Café, festive favourites played around the tree in the foyer.
The College’s Big Band celebrate the American composer and bandleader Duke Ellington on Friday 1 December, in a swinging jazz interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Also, if you like jazz then don’t miss the free Winter Jazz Special in the foyer from 5.15pm on Friday 8 December, admission is free and kicks off the busiest night of the year at the College.
Christmas on Broadway returns by popular demand on 7 & 8 December, featuring an evening of timeless classics from Santa Baby to White Christmas and all the trimmings in between.
Looking to escape Christmas all together? Immerse yourself in one of our three drama productions taking place across the College in December. Three different productions showcasing the best of the College’s talent on and off the stage including Simon Stephen’s Punk Rock, Lynn Nottage’s Intimate Apparel and the first ever English performance of Lope de Vega’s The Agony and the Style.
