2017 is the centenary of the Russian Revolution. Arts organisations across Wales are putting together a season of performances and events which capture the social and cultural explosion of the era and Wales’ historic connections with the Russia of the time.
The R17 programme will be updated throughout the year. Visit us again to discover more exciting events.
Welsh National Opera Artistic Director, David Pountney:
“Russia 17 is an ambitious joint commemoration of the hundredth anniversary of the Russian Revolution across many different media based in and around Cardiff.
"The revolution was a cataclysmic event whose effects are still keenly felt across Europe, and as such it is appropriate that we look back on it with the balanced understanding that culture provides."
