Titus Andronicus - RSC

Titus Andronicus - RSC

The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play.

Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society.

Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society.

Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare’s brutal revenge tragedy after her debut directing The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).

Streamed live from the Royal Shakespeare Company to our cinema screen.

Splendours of the Polish Baroque

The 17th century was the golden age of Polish music: a time when sacred music, opera, music theory and instrument-making all flourished. The Italians Luca Marenzio, Asprilio Pacelli, Giovanni Francesco Anerio and Vincenzo Bertolusi all worked there.

Our programme of festive music on a grand scale for choir soloists, cornetts, sackbuts, serpent and other instruments will include the grandiose Triumphalis recurrit dies beati Martini for two choirs and nine independent instruments by Marcin Mielczewski (1590-1651) and Marenzio’s three-choir Super flumina Babylonis.

This event will be held at St Laurence's Church, Ludlow.

Yerma

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece.

The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.

Empower Yourself

Empower Yourself

Would you like to:

Boost your confidence? Be more resilient to stress? Develop your charismatic side?

Increasing your confidence is essential if you want to get the most out of life. In this 3-hour workshop you’ll learn a number of useful techniques that you can apply to enhance your relationship with yourself and others. Jess draws on her training in psychology, mindful self-compassion, and the performing arts in this interactive session. She has been helping to boost women’s confidence for over ten years. Jess is regularly featured in Boots Health & Beauty magazine, and speaks at wellbeing events across the UK.

We'll focus on 3 main areas: 

1. Mindset and limiting self-talk:These exercises come from leadership development programmes I've run for my corporate clients, focusing on increasing self-awareness and how to unblock limiting thoughts.

2. Mindful self-compassion: We tend to hold the belief that we are not good enough, trying to living up to other's or our own unrealistic expectations. We'll work through some exercises that help highlight all the amazing things about ourselves.

3. Performing arts techniques: It's surprising how much your body language, posture, breathing and voice can help or hinder your confidence levels. We'll play around with a few simple exercises (no role playing or anything scary involved). 

All these elements together can help boost your confidence, help increase your resilience to stress, and can enhance your charismatic side. 

Refreshments included. Limited to 12 places. Women only

Any questions? Email Jess directly at jess@jessbaker.co.uk

“Jess is one of the most engaging and inspiring speakers. The exercises she shared with us were thought-provoking and fun. Everyone enjoyed getting involved and it led to a great discussion afterwards”. Nicola, The Money Coach

A minimum of 4 people required for this workshop, so bring a friend!

David Gilmour Live at Pompeii

45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows, part of his year-long tour in support of his No.1 album ‘Rattle That Lock’. The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheatre, and, for two nights only, the 2,600 strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.

‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ is an audio-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs, but paramount above all is the astonishing music and stellar performances from an all-star band. The show includes songs from throughout David's career, as well as many Pink Floyd classics, including 'One Of These Days', the only song that was also performed at the band’s 1971 show.

Both concerts also saw very special performances of 'The Great Gig In The Sky' from 'The Dark Side Of The Moon', which David rarely plays as a solo artist. This concert performance film includes highlights from both shows, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder . ‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ shows an artist at the top of his artistic game, performing incredible material with his world-class band, in a unique setting, on one very special occasion.

Songs include the title tracks of his two most recent No. 1 solo albums: Rattle That Lock and On An Island, as well as other solo and Pink Floyd classics, including Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb.

This event is screened in the main auditorium. Tickets are £12 / £11 concessions.

Empower Yourself

Empower Yourself

Would you like to:

Boost your confidence? Be more resilient to stress? Develop your charismatic side?

Increasing your confidence is essential if you want to get the most out of life. In this 3-hour workshop you’ll learn a number of useful techniques that you can apply to enhance your relationship with yourself and others. Jess draws on her training in psychology, mindful self-compassion, and the performing arts in this interactive session. She has been helping to boost women’s confidence for over ten years. Jess is regularly featured in Boots Health & Beauty magazine, and speaks at wellbeing events across the UK.

We'll focus on 3 main areas: 

1. Mindset and limiting self-talk:These exercises come from leadership development programmes I've run for my corporate clients, focusing on increasing self-awareness and how to unblock limiting thoughts.

2. Mindful self-compassion: We tend to hold the belief that we are not good enough, trying to living up to other's or our own unrealistic expectations. We'll work through some exercises that help highlight all the amazing things about ourselves.

3. Performing arts techniques: It's surprising how much your body language, posture, breathing and voice can help or hinder your confidence levels. We'll play around with a few simple exercises (no role playing or anything scary involved). 

All these elements together can help boost your confidence, help increase your resilience to stress, and can enhance your charismatic side. 

Refreshments included. Limited to 12 places. Women only

Any questions? Email Jess directly at jess@jessbaker.co.uk

“Jess is one of the most engaging and inspiring speakers. The exercises she shared with us were thought-provoking and fun. Everyone enjoyed getting involved and it led to a great discussion afterwards”. Nicola, The Money Coach

Norma

00010_018_R42.jpg

Bellini’s masterpiece boasts one of the most famous arias in all of opera, the beautiful “Casta diva.”

Directed by Sir David McVicar, this evocative new production sets the action deep in a Druid forest, where nature and ancient ritual rule. The priestess Norma is torn between loyalty to her oppressed people and love for a Roman soldier. On the eve of a Druid revolt, she must choose between two agonising betrayals—only to learn that she herself has already been betrayed. Sondra Radvanovsky as Norma and Joyce DiDonato as her rival Adalgisa lead a cast of bel canto heavyweights, with Joseph Calleja as Norma’s unfaithful lover, Pollione, and British favourite Matthew Rose returning to the Met as Norma’s father, Oroveso.

Alice's Advetnures in Wonderland

Alice's Advetnures in Wonderland

At a garden party on a sunny afternoon, Alice is surprised to see her parents’ friend Lewis Carroll transform into a white rabbit. When she follows him down a rabbit hole events become curiouser and curiouser... As Alice journeys through Wonderland, she encounters countless strange creatures. She’s swept off her feet by the charming Knave of Hearts, who’s on the run for stealing the tarts. Confusion piles upon confusion. Then Alice wakes with a start. Was it all a daydream?

Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland burst onto the stage in 2011 in an explosion of colour, stage magic and inventive, sophisticated choreography. Joby Talbot’s score combines contemporary soundworlds with sweeping melodies that gesture to ballet scores of the 19th century. Bob Crowley’s wildly imaginative, eye-popping designs draw on everything from puppetry to projections to make Wonderland wonderfully real.

Alice encounters a cast of extraordinary and instantly recognizable characters, from the highly strung Queen of Hearts – who performs a hilarious send-up of The Sleeping Beauty's famous Rose Adage – to a playing-card corps de ballet, a sinuous caterpillar and a tap-dancing Mad Hatter. But the ballet does not avoid the darker undercurrents of Lewis Carroll’s story: a nightmarish kitchen, an eerily disembodied Cheshire Cat and the unhinged tea party are all here in vivid detail. The delicious result shows The Royal Ballet at its best, bringing together world-class dance with enchanting family entertainment.

Director/Designer: Richard Studer

Experience opera like never before as MWO ‘Small-Stages’ presents its first ever micro-chamber performances with a brand new version of this hilarious one-act comedy classic.

Composed in 1967 and based on Anton Chekhov’s play of the same name, The Bear tells the tale of the widow, Mme Popova, interrupted from her constant mourning by the arrival of the rough-hewn debt collector Smirnov (the “bear” of the title). Passions run high and their sparring culminates in a duel – and an unexpected romance. A great opportunity for all music lovers to hear Walton’s classic comedy in its fiftieth anniversary year. Sung in English.

After the interval join us for Tatyana’s Party Pieces, a light hearted take on the birthday party scene from Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin and a taster of MWO’s Spring 2018 Main Stage tour.

The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

The young Clara creeps downstairs on Christmas Eve to play with her favourite present – a Nutcracker doll. But the mysterious magician Drosselmeyer is waiting to sweep her off on a magical adventure. After defeating the Mouse King, the Nutcracker and Clara travel through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy treats them to a wonderful display of dances. Back home, Clara thinks she must have been dreaming – but doesn’t she recognize Drosselmeyer’s nephew?

Peter Wright’s nigh-on definitive production for The Royal Ballet ranks as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker. With its festive period setting, dancing snowflakes and enchanting stage magic, Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet has become the perfect Christmas entertainment, with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognizable of all ballet scores.

Loosely based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, the ballet opens with a lively Christmas party, its Victorian setting captured in opulent detail by Julia Trevelyan Oman’s designs. Wright’s choreography ingeniously incorporates surviving fragments of the ballet’s original material, including the sublime pas de deux for the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince. But in emphasizing the relationship between Clara and the Nutcracker Prince, the production also gains a touching subtext of first love.

Young Marx

1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, Marx the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.

Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman.

Rigoletto

Rigoletto

The corruption of innocence is at the heart of Verdi’s potent tragedy in David McVicar’s production for The Royal Opera. Rigoletto, court jester to the libertine Duke of Mantua, is cursed by the father of one of the Duke’s victims for his irreverent laughter. When the Duke seduces Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda, it seems the curse is taking effect...

David McVicar’s production highlights the cruelty at the heart of the court of Mantua. Richly dressed courtiers engage in orgies and revelries to Verdi’s heady, spirited dances. The opera’s many musical highlights include the ebullient ‘La donna è mobile’, in which the Duke boasts of his disregard for women; Gilda’s exquisite, plangent duets with Rigoletto and the Duke; and the gorgeous Act III quartet that beautifully weaves the voices together as the story quickens to its shattering conclusion.

Giuseppe Verdi wrote in 1855 that Rigoletto was his ‘best opera’. He had had to overcome state censorship to stage it – the censors objected to its depiction of an immoral ruler – but he was vindicated by the premiere’s huge success in 1851. Rigoletto was performed 250 times in the next 10 years and has remained one of the most popular of all operas

Tosca

Puccini’s thrilling Tosca is a story of love, terror, the abuse of power, and the unquenchable longing for freedom.

When an escaped political prisoner takes refuge in a church, an opera singer and a painter are drawn into a twisting plot that puts them at the mercy of the secret police and its network of torturers and spies. Rivalling the splendour of Franco Zeffirelli’s Napoleonic-era sets and costumes, Sir David McVicar’s ravishing new production offers a splendid backdrop for extraordinary singing. Kristine Opolais stars as the titular prima donna, alongside Vittorio Grigolo as her artist lover and Bryn Terfel as the villainous police chief—one of his signature roles. Andris Nelsons conducts.

L'Elisir d'Amore

Yende in Barbiere 2.jpg

The poor country boy Nemorino is in love with Adina, a confident landowner, but she is way out of his league—financially and otherwise. But when he buys a “love potion” from a travelling quack, the results are rather more than he bargained for. Charmingly staged by Bartlett Sher, Donizetti’s beloved masterpiece combines deft comic timing with touching emotional depth. The production stars Matthew Polenzani, who enthralled Met audiences as Nemorino in 2013 with his moving “Una furtiva lagrima.” Rising South African soprano Pretty Yende is the spirited Adina, Davide Luciano makes his Met debut as the arrogant soldier Belcore, and Ildebrando D’Arcangelo is the potion-peddling Doctor Dulcamara. Domingo Hindoyan conducts.
