As well as being a vibrant presenting arts centre, Theatr Brycheiniog works closely with Welsh, British and international arts producers to provide artists with the opportunity to tour the myriad venues, theatres and arts centres of Wales. In recent years, Theatr Brycheiniog has co-produced tours by Catrin Finch & Cimarron, Os Sambistas featuring Bosco de Oliveira and a children's version of Shakespeare's Henry V by a German theatre company. Another notable project includes a co-production with Music Theatre Wales of Ian McEwan's first opera libretto For You.
Other co-producing partners include Brecon Baroque Festival, Cardiff-based dance and physical theatre outfit Earthfall and Mid Wales Chamber Orchestra.
Theatr Brycheiniog has recently become the first solar-powered theatre in Wales, generating a small proportion of its energy requirements through the recently installed photo-voltaic cells on its roof. The theatre is committed to finding ways of reducing its carbon footprint further.
Theatr Brycheiniog opened in 1997.
