My Ladies, Lords and Gentlemen! WNO cordially invites you to the World Premiere of the rip-roaring, uproarious musical comedy 'Rhondda Rips It Up!' created for your delectation by the illustrious Ms Elena Langer (composer and suffragette) and the inimitable Ms Emma Jenkins (librettist and suffragette).

Join us on an unforgettable journey through the life and adventures of unsung heroine of the Welsh Suffrage movement, Margaret Haig Thomas, the Viscountess Rhondda. In this thigh-slapping romp through the world of suffrage and song, told through the lens of music-hall, you will be guided through the story by our very own Emcee (Lesley Garrett) following the escapades of Lady Rhondda (Madeleine Shaw) and her brave battalion of suffragettes as they fearlessly takes on Peers, politicians and post-boxes in their struggle for women’s rights.
