Have not been disappointed when going to see WNO, they always put on splendid productions. Cinderella this time whilst probably not memorable for arias, was spectacularly colourful and lively. A very enjoyable evening

Drama's, comedy's, musical's, ballets you name it we've seen it at the Hippodrome. The seating is great, nice and comfy with plenty of room, plenty of loo's!!! and the restaurant is well worth trying.

Excellent Welsh National Opera production of La Cenerentola by Rossini in traditional costume. Fine singing by the leads who displayed mastery of Rossini’s required vocal gymnastics. Comfortable seating. Programme price a bit of a ripoff. Enjoyable evening all round.

Lovely, clean tidy and well-organised theatre. Only gripe I would have is the cost of drinks (£9 for a glass of Pinot), otherwise easy to find and very comfortable.

Visited Hippodrome to watch Gymfusion. Lovely theatre, attentive staff, and facilities all of a very high standard. Great location to China Town and the shopping centre.
