Commune July 6 poster v5 web size














Two performances are to be given by Robert Minhinnick and Tracy Evans, with live music by
Peter Morgan.
‘An Opera in Baghdad’ is a long poem, published in Minhinnick’s recent ‘New Selected Poems’ (Carcanet). It concerns a visit he made to Iraq in 1997, between the first and second Gulf Wars.
“This ‘opera’ is a lively and very musical dramatic poem”, says Robert Minhinnick. “It commemorates some of the extraordinary people I met on the visit.
“Entering and leaving Iraq meant arduous journeys across implacable desert. The experience has had a major effect on my writing, especially the visit to a deserted Babylon”.
“I was helping make a film about uranium, and hope scenes might be screened during the performances.”

ARTS FOR THE EARTH* ‘GREEN ROOM’ LAUNCH backs the 10:10:10
(www.1010global.org/uk) global action day on Climate Change. October 8th, Grand Pavilion from 7.30pm. Organisers say the evening promises to surprise, exhilarate, engage, enthuse and enlighten. Tickets £6.00 and £4.00


Sustainable Wales’s Director, Margaret Minhinnick, says of the new arts initiative: “The Green Room brings two crucial areas of life together – environmental concern and the human imagination. We depend on them utterly for everything that’s best in our culture. They are inextricably linked.

Supported by the Arts Council of Wales and the Grand Pavilion we trust local people will support it. “Further ‘Green Room’ events will be taking place through autumn and spring. These will include leading arts practitioners from Wales, involve performances and also intimate conversations and interviews”.

“The arts are vital in any expression of concern regarding our current climate emergency. The event takes place 2 days in advance of the international day of action on climate change to convince people to cut their carbon emissions by 10% in 2010.” (
