New Musical To Look At Life On Tiger Bay

A new musical focusing on survival, romance and atonement in a diverse community will premiere at wales Millennium Centre later this year.

Tiger Bay, a Wales Millennium Centre production in association with Cape Town Opera, returns to the dawn of the twentieth century at the height of South Wales’s coal trade with characters drawn from the melting pot of Cardiff’s famous docklands. 

Amongst a cast of unforgettable characters, the role of John Stuart, Third Marquess of Bute, will be played by John Owen-Jones – best known as The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera and as Jean Valjean in Les Misérables in the West End and on Broadway. Completing the cast will be a diverse ensemble to portray the rich multicultural community of the period plus a talented children’s chorus.

The world premiere of Tiger Bay will take place on November 15 running until November 25. Tickets can be booked online at or by calling 029 2063 6464.
