Thank you Max!

Sir Peter Maxwell 3470000b

It is with great sadness that we have received the news that Sir Peter Maxwell Davies – Max – has died.

Max was the inspiration for Music Theatre Wales. The very first opera that Michael Rafferty and I produced in 1982 at the start of Cardiff New Opera Group was his extraordinary opera The Lighthouse. It blew us away and the Cardiff audience too.

The Devil Inside

The Devil inside Web

A gritty, glittery, Faustian folktale, set firmly in the twenty-first century. Inspired by The Bottle Imp, a short story by Robert Louis Stevenson, this brand new opera echoes his most famous tale The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
