Glyndebourne and the English National Opera.



Brown Lloyd James, founded last September, is running a widespread

national press and TV campaign for the Welsh opera as well as targeting

The one-year PR programme will focus on the opera’s personalities such

as musical director Carlo Rizzi, famous performers such as Willard White

and publicise tour dates in a bid to boost attendance and attract

sponsors.



’The Welsh National Opera has a reputation for being original and a bit

founders.



’We want to show what a marvellous job it does for the public without

the enormous sums of money the Royal Opera House has got.’



The Welsh opera is the latest is a raft of wins for Brown Lloyd James,

which was founded by Lloyd, a former editor of the Daily Express, Howell

James, ex-political secretary to John Major, and Lord Lloyd-Webber’s US

publicist Peter Brown.
