Branwen: Dadeni

A dispersed kingdom. A corrupt monarchy. A new generation desperate for change.

Branwen: Dadeni is an epic Welsh language musical which brings one of our most well-known legends into the contemporary world.

After a bloody civil war, the Llŷr family controls Cedyrn. Branwen, the charismatic young princess who has won the people’s hearts, is eager to move her country forward, but her brother, the king, won’t listen.

During an unexpected visit by the King of Ireland, she sees her opportunity: escape to a progressive and prosperous country where her voice will count and she’ll have the power to change things. But, as her star rises, every bargain, betrayal and body leads her deeper into the darkness, until, on the brink of ruin, the price becomes clear.

What would you sacrifice to create a just world?

A new musical by Wales Millennium Centre and Frân Wen which reimagines the iconic story, with Gethin Evans directing an outstanding cast of performers and musicians.

Book by Hanna Jarman, Elgan Rhys and Seiriol Davies; lyrics and music by Seiriol Davies.
