We perform one major show a year, usually in April, and then minor shows or concerts in the autumn. Our concerts are varied and have ranged from 'A Night at the Opera', consisting of well known opera solos and choruses, to 'Magic of the Musicals', consisting of many popular songs from such shows as Grease, Les Miserables, West Side Story and many more.
The Monmouth Music Theatre is a Registered Charity (No: 1154731) and is affiliated with National Operatic & Dramatic Association. You can also support the MMT by using EasyFundraising when you shop online.
Following their outstanding success of 'Guys and Dolls' in April, one of South Wales' most dynamic and versatile theatre companies, Monmouth Music Theatre, turns its artistic and creative talents to their new show, 'Iolanthe'.
Set in Victorian England, this hilarious comic opera - considered to be way ahead of its time - stunned the sensibilities of unsuspecting audiences at the time. The masterful combination of fantastical fairies and pompous peers in an outrageously satirical romp that would make even today's politicians blush with embarrassment, will draw you in to the mad maze of parliamentary intrigue. The plot has almost every political twist and turn crafted to distinction by the ultimate masters of musical comedy, Gilbert and Sullivan.
Featuring many of the magnificent cast from 'Guys and Dolls', plus some exciting new performers, the production will be directed by the superbly creative Kate Russell. Joining forces with the artists and chorus on stage will be a professional orchestra under the direction of Monmouth Music Theatre's Music Director, Ian Russell.
All this will take place at Monmouth's jewel in the crown, the wonderfully atmospheric Savoy Theatre. So sit back, relax, and immerse yourself in the truly hilarious and riveting comic experience.
