Sunny weather strollers on Penarth’s iconic Pier have been enjoying a free added weekend bonus – free opera performances by Welsh National Opera stars.
Literally ‘treading the boards’ on the pier, the opera singers – clad in shorts and T-shirts bearing the orange WNO logo – performed a number of rousing and familiar operatic excerpts.
It was one of several performances at outdoor venues being held in over 30 locations as part of Cardiff’s “Festival of Voice“. The artistic director behind it Graeme Farrow says the aim is to “celebrate the human voice in all of its glory across all genres”. Amongst the artists taking part are Van Morrison and Charlotte Church.
The festival continues until June 12 and details are on http://tinyurl.com/z5zwusx
