Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world – and he’s determined to make a splash.

Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God.

On a distant island a man waits.
Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.
In a unique partnership with Intel, the Royal Shakespeare Company will be using today’s most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s magical play, creating an unforgettable theatrical experience.
Simon Russell Beale returns to the RSC after 20 years to play Prospero in a production directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran.
Exeter Symphony Orchestra perform The Battle of the Somme live with film at Teignmouth Pavilions. The film is 74 minutes long and Dr Toby Haggith, Imperial War Museum curator and Laura Rossi, Composer provide an introduction about the film and the music.
Somme100 FILM are working with IWM as part of the First World War Centenary Partnership, to show this film to audiences across the world alongside performances of Laura Rossi’s acclaimed score. Somme100 FILM is supported by the Arts Council England, and project partners Faber Music.
Laura Rossi’s new score was commissioned to mark the 90th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme as a soundtrack for the digitally restored film. When embarking on her research into the film and the Battle Laura discovered that her great uncle Fred Ainge (whom she knew as he survived the war) had been a stretcher-bearer attached to the 29th Division on 1 July 1916. In preparation she visited the Somme Battlefields, using Fred’s diaries to locate the areas in which he served. For the 90th anniversary of the Battle, the re- mastered film was screened to a full house at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, accompanied by Laura’s orchestral score, performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra. It received a glowing 5 star review in The Times.
And these troops in the mud grinned or stared at us to a new music score by Laura Rossi, brilliantly effective. Geoff Brown, The Times. *****

Sarah McQuaid’s voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and “honey poured into wine” (Minor 7th). Her new album Walking Into White (2015) is her most honest and adventurous work to date, with a depth and texture of soundscape that are reflected in her beautifully crafted live shows. A captivating performer, she seduces her audience with cheeky banter and stories from the road, as well as with stunning musicianship; in her hands, the guitar becomes much more than merely an accompanying instrument.
“Finding treasure feels great, and such is the case with musician Sarah McQuaid.... I’ve attended hundreds of concerts of all kinds, and her subtle mastery onstage launches her straight into my fave shows ever. One voice, one guitar, and the wondrous reminder of the magic of music. Sarah has the gift.” —The Huffington Post
“The echoing magic of ‘Walking into White’, the latest album from Sarah McQuaid, seizes you from the first and holds you captured long after the last notes fade.... Sending out a trembling resonance, this is a collection of songs that feel their way into your being.” —FolkWords
“The songs are acutely observed and literate, almost like journal notes set to music. They’re measured and tranquil but they’re never dull because there is always a sense of restlessness and unease behind the poetry.... And it’s all lovely.” —R2/Rock ’n’ Reel

Freya must use all her wits to escape old Gorm’s cooking pot and prove that friendship is stronger than the strength of a giant and more powerful than the magic of a god.
The rivalry between the Norse gods and the Frost Giants is brought humorously to life in this colourful re-telling of two famous Viking myths and Freya’s own saga

Ventoux is a restaging of the dramatic battle between Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani in the Tour de France 2000 on Mont Ventoux.
Once regarded as the greatest race in the history of cycling, we now know that both Armstrong and Pantani doped during their careers.
At the time both were champions in their own right - Pantani winning the Tour de France in 1998, and Armstrong winning in 1999.
In 2000 they went head to head on Mont Ventoux. They crossed the line together but their careers spiralled in wildly opposite directions.
Armstrong won seven consecutive Tour de France titles; Pantani died of a cocaine overdose alone in a hotel room.
Armstrong denied, lied and cheated where Pantani was caught.
Ventoux restages this race, knowing everything that we now know in 2015.
With a pair of road bikes, stunning footage of Mont Ventoux and actual race commentary, 2Magpies bring the excitement of the Tour de France to the theatre.

Simon Weston: My Life, My Story is a truly inspirational show about one man's journey from the front line of war, being on the sdge of death to today being a happy and contented father, Grandfather and National Treasure.
It was the conflict of a generation and one that many people will never forget. On the 2nd of April 1982 Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands.
The Islands, which had been in the control of Great Britain for nearly 150 years, became a battle ground. What was to follow saw 655 Argentinian Soldiers and 255 British Servicemen slain.
Amongst those sent to the conflict was Simon Weston CBE.
In one of the most horrific moments of the conflict the RFA Sir Galahad was bombed by two Argentinian planes. Aboard at the time was Simon. This was an event that was to change his life forever.
Eventually and against all odds, Simon escaped the burning and buckled ship, but only after suffering 46% burns to his body. Today he has become one of the most recognised faces of the conflict and, after his 2015 success, he is now returning to the stage to tell his story in his words.
Guiding him, through that fateful day to current times is David Fitzgerald, former news anchor and BBC Broadcaster and friend.
The show features the highs and lows and questions only David can ask, with answers only Simon can give. Combined with rare footage and an insight in to his life today, Simon shares the shocking truth of the conflict, that day and the years that followed.
