ROH Encore: La Traviata (12A)

ROH Encore: La Traviata

Richard Eyre's beautiful production provides the perfect setting for Verdi's opera about a courtesan who sacrifices all for love.


From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heartbreaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La traviata is one of the most popular of all operas. Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.

Hancock's Half Hour

Hancock's Half Hour

From the producers of the critically acclaimed tours of Round the Horne and The Goon Show comes another radio comedy classic live on stage.


In 1954, Tony Hancock burst onto the airwaves of the BBC Light Programme with a comedy show unlike anything the British public had heard before.  Playing a less successful version of himself and surrounded by a cast of fellow comedy greats including Sid James, Hattie Jacques and Kenneth Williams, Hancock’s Half Hour was one of the first programmes in the genre we now know as sitcom.


Written by young up-and-comers Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, who later went on to create Steptoe and Son, Hancock’s Half Hour redefined radio comedy and has had people laughing non-stop for the past 65 years.


So come and take a trip to 23 Railway Cuttings, East Cheam to join ‘the lad himself’ and his motley crew for three classic episodes of this hilarious show.


Reviews of Round the Horne


‘A superb evening’s entertainment and I left the theatre wanting more.’

Keith James: The Songs Of Nick Drake

Keith James: The Songs Of Nick Drake

A haunting and immaculately crafted concert


This concert begins with an introductory set of timeless songs by brilliant songwriters – all contemporary with Nick Drake. Richard Thompson, Roy Harper, Sandy Denny, Al Stewart, Vashti Bunyan, John Martyn and Bert Jansch.


Also featured are poems by William Blake which Keith has set to guitar arrangements based on Nick’s unique style.


Nick Drake is the most revered and loved of all this country’s singer/songwriters. He recorded three cherished Albums between 1969 and 1972 but was almost entirely unknown in his day. After his tragic death in 1974, aged only 26, his music almost disappeared into obscurity. Now, thanks to a massive resurgence of interest and a worldwide re-evaluation of his genius, Nick Drake has become a National treasure. An important book, Remembered for a while has been recently released, written by his elder Sister Gabrielle Drake. This volume throws light on almost everything attributed to Nick’s brief career as a songwriter and recording artist as well as on many corners of mystery and supposition.


A number of years have now passed since singer/guitarist Keith James paralysed the whole country with his stunningly beautiful series of concerts entitled The Songs of Nick Drake. At the beginning of the project in 2001 he was the first artist ever to bring this fragile and intriguing music to theatres across the UK in its pure live concert form. The end result was over a decade of highly acclaimed concerts amounting to over 1500 shows in venues in the UK, Ireland, Holland, France, Italy and Spain including all of Nick’s Schools and Colleges – even Glastonbury Festival.


‘Meticulous dissection of Nick Drake’ idiosyncratic guitar techniques handled with surgical precision’ Northern Sky


‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’  The Independent


‘Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice’  Sunday Times


‘a sensitive and pleasingly understated delivery, all the better that the songs might speak for themselves’  Acoustic Magazine

ROH Encore: Don Quixote

Love and friendship triumph in Carlos Acosta's vibrant production of this dazzling ballet.


Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho Panza. At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri. Carlos Acosta chose this joyful classic for his first production for The Royal Ballet. His vibrant staging brings together the whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers. The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea. Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman

BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo – 2016 & 2013


Duos come and duos go… And some nurture and fine tune their art and watch it grow into something totally original, captivating and award-winning. Bonded by an unseen alchemy, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have entwined their professional and personal relationship into an enviable class act of imaginative songwriting and musicianship.


The Dartmoor-based husband and wife have twice won the coveted Best Duo title at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (2016 and 2013), consistently delivering assured, distinctive performances whether live or recorded. Over two decades of performance they have never been trapped in a groove – always bold and innovative, mixing traditional song arrangements with (increasingly) their self-penned material which reels from the bitter to the sweet, the wry to the sad, the political to the passive. across folk, rock, country and blues genres.


With ‘Personae’, Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman present their landmark fifth studio album. It is an eclectic emotional see-saw of a journey, melding ten tracks of traditional ballads and their own self-penned versatile material. Once again Roberts & Lakeman have created an album by turns curious, thought-provoking, moving and magical – a complete cornucopia astutely delivered by one of the most intriguing, uninhibited and popular duos on the British folk scene. Most definitely not ‘personae non gratae’.

Torbay Symphony Orchestra 2019

Torbay Symphony Orchestra 2019

Torbay Symphony presented b Teignmouth Classical Music Festival.  The programme promises a feast of sensuous and exhilarating music!


Lutoslawski 4th Symphony (1992)


This was Lutoslawski’s last orchestral work and shows him at the height of his powers, blending the  unique aleatoric techniques he honed over a lifetime with a breath-taking palette of sounds and  textures, from the ambient to the dynamic and rhythmic, full of energy and life.


Debussy 'La Mer' (1905)


Debussy conceived this piece as three symphonic sketches: from dawn to noon on the sea, play of the  waves and dialogue of the wind and the sea. It has been described as a “sonorous becoming….a  developmental process in which the very notions of exposition and development co-exist in an  uninterrupted burst”. 25 minutes of pure bliss as we are transported to the middle of the ocean.


Schumann Cello concerto in A Minor, op. 129 (1850) with soloist Jayden Lamcellari


The concerto was written in just two weeks, in October 1850. It is unified in material and character,  with the three movements intended to be performed without a break. Its emotional scope is wide,  however, moving from the deeply meditative to the agitated, leading to the brilliant, affirmative  conclusion.


Jayden Lamcellari is a young 16-year-old Irish cellist studying with Bozidar Vukotic at the Royal


Academy of Music. He is currently the recipient of the Elton John scholarship awarded by Director  Howard Ionascu.


Jayden made his debut as a soloist at the Musikverein Concert Hall in Vienna in March 2018. He played


at the Carnegie Hall with the New York Concerti Sinfonietta in June 2018 and has been invited to


perform again in New York at the Lincoln Centre.

Jayden has won 3 international competitions: the Grand Prize Virtuoso competition, the New England

international competition and the New York Concerti Sinfonietta International Competition. He has also won most major competitions in Ireland.  Jayden has performed on Ireland’s Late Late Show and has on  for the President of Ireland.


Jayden enjoys playing chamber music with his quartet and loves playing with the Academy Symphony  Orchestra.

Orlando: Who is she? Who is he? Who are we?


Find out in the life-affirming, comedic tale of an immortal poet, whose gender cannot be pinned down, whose spirit cannot be caged, and whose irreverent, romantic adventures across British history – from the 1500s to the present day – provide a magic-realist exploration of human identity; personal, sexual and national.

Based on the satirical 1928 novel by Virginia Woolf.

SUFI POEMS AND STORIES WITH BRIAN PATTEN AND AYAZ

Including tea and cakes

Brian Patten’s latest creation is The Book of Upside Down Thinking, a magical collection of short poems built around stories often attributed to a character in Middle Eastern folklore that we have come to know as Nazrudin. Much of

this beautifully illustrated book is based on modern interpretations of those stories; the newer poems of his own could not have existed, Brian says, without Nazrudin’s inspiration. Brian Patten was one of the Liverpool Poets,

alongside Adrian Henri and Roger McGough. Their joint 1967 collection, The Mersey Sound, was the single book which inspired ordinary people to read poetry. Fifty years and over half a million copies later, it is still in print.


Ayaz (Angus Landman) is a Sufi poet, formerly a psychotherapist, who now runs The Practice Rooms, centres for talking therapies and holistic health across the

South West. His poetry stems from an inner revelation that began in his teens and finds its creative expression in the poetry and philosophy of the Sufi Way. He is interested in reframing the Christian story from a mystical perspective, addressing its relevance to how we live and the choices we make. Ayaz and his family live near Bath; he enjoys walking, horse riding and creating beautiful spaces.

Roger McGough Headline Reading

How many poets are household names? How many have been part of a No 1 hit single and a big box-office film, been awarded a CBE, OBE, and the Freedom of the City of Liverpool? Or won the Signal Award for best children’s poetry book

while being the softly engaging voice of one of Radio 4’s longest-running radio shows? It all started back in the ‘60s. The Beatles were brand-new mega-stars and Liverpool was the place to be. Roger McGough and the other Mersey poets had

been much influenced by New York’s beat scene and shot to fame as the cool literary arm of the city’s sudden emergence as cultural hub. Roger McGough today is ‘The patron saint of poetry’ (Carol Ann Duffy), ‘A poemy torch in dark corners' (Ian McMillan), and 'A witty and ingenious chronicler of

British life…' (The Poetry Society). He has over 70 books to his name, is President of the Poetry Society, and still makes occasional appearances with Little Machine, the band with a brilliant repertoire of poetry set to music. An exuberant new collection, joinedupwriting, will be published by

Penguin in late March. Its mood will be familiar: mostly high-spirited, revolving around word-play, written in almost conversational style. He tackles the most serious subjects (parenthood, illness, ageing…) with the lightest of touches and a complete absence of high falutin’ language – he is the most accessible of poets. It’s no coincidence his work is much used in schools and has travelled in many translations all

around the world. Teignmouth Poetry Festival is privileged to present the favourite-uncle voice of ‘Poetry Please’. Don’t miss

Experience the decadence and elegance of 1870s Paris in David McVicar's spectacular production of Gounod's best-loved opera.


There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling. Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès. Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris. Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognizable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.

Frank Ifield


Nicki Gillis is one of Australia’s most amazing entertainers. A singer, dancer, radio announcer and television presenter who exudes such positive energy you can’t help but be mesmerized by her presence on stage and off.


Born in Western Australia, Nicki took to the stage at six years old and has never looked back.

During this period also won three major awards in the entertainment industry: The Gympie Muster Talent Search, the Frank Ifield International Spur Award and the Australian Entertainment Industry “Mo” Award.


Nicki has toured the UK each year since 2009 and built a strong and loyal following in the club and theatre circuit. She has also been the female lead and co-producer of three successful stage shows in Australia, “When Aussies Ruled Britannia” (Starring Frank Ifield and Keith Potger), “Frank Ifield Remembers” and “Ladies Rock – A History of Women’s Rock Music”.


Nicki is now presenting her new two-hour stage show in MAY and early JUNE 2019 aptly named “Tapestry – The Concert”, where she performs this quintessential album live on stage with her band and backing singers.

So… welcome to Thumper, Blind Melon, Sticky Willy, Walter and Javelin … The Unravelling Wilburys.   In a former guise as top Beatles project, Sgt Pepper’s Only Dart Board Band, (The Flab Five), they had toured for 21 years playing at UK festivals, including Glastonbury, and at theatres and music venues across Europe and the UK.  They also headlined at a Beatles festival at Montgomery, Alabama.


Their shows feature the boys take on their songs being usurped by Messrs Harrison, Dylan, Lynne, Orbison and Petty, back in the late 80s at Nashville, Tennessee.  The story unravels, as is told in the show, and it comes to be that The Unravelling Wilburys have now stolen back what is rightfully theirs! Not only that, they have stolen some choice solo songs (allegedly) from Messrs Dylan, Lynne, Orbison, Harrison and Petty as compensation…………… and now happily play them in their shows!


The set list includes Wilbury songs such as:  End Of The Line, Handle With Care, The Devil’s Been Busy, Last Night, Tweeter And The Monkey Man, She’s My Baby, Heading For The Light……………. And choice cuts such as:  Pretty Woman, You’ve Got It (Roy Orbison), Mr Blue Sky, Evil Woman (Jeff Lynne’s ELO), I Won’t Back Down, Running Down A Dream (Tom Petty), Mr Tambourine Man, Make You Feel My Love (Bob Dylan), What Is Life, Here Come’s The Sun (George Harrison)………… and many more.  All great songs in the folk/country/rock genres and plenty of humour throughout!


” Captured the style and sounds perfectly and with their own added sense of humour gave the audience an evening to remember

ROH Encore: Romeo and Juliet (12A)

ROH Encore: Romeo and Juliet

Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers encounter passion and tragedy in Kenneth MacMillan's 20th century ballet masterpiece.


Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.


Duration: 195 min
