Mabinogion Chwedl a Chân

Mabinogion Chwedl a Chân

by Rhian Hutchings, March 14, 2019

Operasonic, Clytha Primary School, Woodlands Community Primary and Ysgol Gymraeg Caerffili are working together to create three mini-Mabinogi operas this year!

From March 2019 – June 2019, year 5 pupils explored stories from the Mabinogion working bilingually with storytellers, designers, composers and directors. Pupils were asked to tell stories in their own way and become the #operacreators we know they are! The three schools came together to share their creations at The Riverfront Theatre, Newport in June 2019.

  • Clytha Primary School – The Oldest Animals / Ysgol Gynradd Clytha – Yr Anifeiliaid Hynaf
  • Ysgol Gymraeg Caerffili – Dylan Eil Ton
  • Woodlands Community Primary – Pwyll and the Hunt / Ysgol Gynradd Gymunedol Woodlands – Pwyll a’r Helfa

Storytellers: Cath Little, Michael Harvey, Tamar Williams Composer: Stacey Blythe Designer: Nia Morris Director: Rhian Hutchings
