Wales Millennium Centre

Wales Millennium Centre is Wales’ national home for the performing arts in Cardiff Bay and this year will be celebrating their 15th birthday.

One of the UK’s top cultural attractions and home to eight resident partners, this Welsh landmark stages musicals, opera, ballet, circus and contemporary dance alongside the UK’s largest programme of free performances.

The Wales Millennium Centre was created as a stage for Wales, to reflect the spirit of a nation, and become a home for the performing arts.

What's On

The design reflects both the natural and industrial landscape of Wales, taking inspiration from the sea-cliffs and steel industry of South Wales and the jagged slate mines found in the north.  There is also a nod to the maritime history of Tiger Bay, reflected by the hull-shaped copper-coloured roof that gave rise to the building being known locally as the armadillo.

After years in the planning, it took just two-and-a-half years to complete and was opened by the Queen in 2004 using an ornate steel key that travelled across five continents on a journey of goodwill before unlocking the front door.

Popular Upcoming Shows

 

 

The Lion King 

The Lion King musical is coming to Cardiff for a seven-week run in 2020. The Disney hit proved to be a sell-out when it previously visited the city. The popular musical will be at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff from 9th July to 29th August 2020.

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney's multi-award-winning musical uses breath-taking masks and puppetry to create pure theatrical magic.

At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba - the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.

 

Les Misérables

Seen by over 120 million people worldwide in 51 countries and in 22 languages, Les Misérables is undisputedly one of the world's most popular musicals. The show will run from 26th November 2019 to 4th January 2020 at the Wales Millennium Centre.

After 19 years as a prisoner, Jean Valjean is freed by Javert, the officer in charge of the prison workforce. Valjean promptly breaks parole but later uses money from stolen silver to reinvent himself as a mayor and factory owner. Javert vows to bring Valjean back to prison. Eight years later, Valjean becomes the guardian of a child named Cosette after her mother's death, but Javert's relentless pursuit means that peace will be a long time coming.

 

We Will Rock You

The worldwide smash-hit musical by Queen and Ben Elton returns to the UK. The multi-million-pound show dazzles all the senses in breath-taking style. Guaranteed to blow your mind, this musical phenomenon is not to be missed. The show can be seen between 6th - 20th April 2020.

With 24 of Queen’s biggest hits delivered in a show that boasts the scale and spectacle that marked the band's legendary live performances.

The musical tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and live music in a distant future where everyone dresses, thinks and acts the same. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown.

 

 

Phantom of the Opera

The brilliant original production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera is embarking on a major UK and Ireland tour. Now in its 34th phenomenal year in the West End, The Phantom of the Opera is widely considered one of the most beautiful and spectacular productions in history.

The Phantom of the Opera tells the tale of a disfigured musical genius known only as ‘The Phantom’ who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of a young soprano – Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for Raoul, the Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passions collide.

 

Sister Act

Your favourite sister is back, and she’s ready to take on the 21st century. Based on the iconic 1992 movie, this sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music tells the hilarious story of the disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder.

Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she won’t be found – a convent! Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.

On stage between 12th-17th October 2020.

 

Footloose

Based on the 1980s screen sensation which took the world by storm, Footloose sizzles with spirit, fun and the best in UK musical talent. With cutting edge modern choreography, you'll enjoy classic 80s hits including Holding Out for a Hero, Almost Paradise, Let's Hear It For The Boy and of course the unforgettable title track Footloose. It is on stage between 19th-24th October 2020.

City boy Ren thinks his life is over when he is forced to move to Bomont, an American rural backwater. But things are far worse than he could have ever imagined, as the town bans dancing. It isn’t long before Ren can’t resist breaking the rules, and he’s not alone.
