R17 - Russia! Culture! Revolution!

Centenary season in Wales

Seventeen arts organisations, led by Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, assembled a year-long season of over 100 performances and events in 44 venues across Wales. The season was produced by me and my wonderful comrade Andrew Miller! R17 included talks, exhibitions, screenings, participatory events, and performances of dance, music, contemporary art and design, opera, film, photography, and theatre. There were both original commissions and new interpretations of well loved Russian works, delivering a slew of 5* reviews and achieving a total reach of just under one million people through live performance, exhibition attendances, online and broadcast activities.
