Community An Evening with Satie Sunday 22 October 7pm

David Crystal and Iwan Llewelyn-Jones

An Evening with Satie

An evening exploring the colourful character of the musician and thinker, Eric Satie (1866-1925), through his own music and words.  Satie was a member of the early 20th Century Parisian avant-garde, and the composer of many familiar pieces including Gymnopédies and Danses Gothiques.  David Crystal reads from Satie's works, while Iwan Llewelyn-Jones, at the piano, performs a complementary selection of his music.

The concert hall will be set out in Parisian Café style.  Satie was an eccentric dresser so feel free to attend in period dress!              

This event is a fundraiser for Canolfan Ucheldre Centre

Broadcast ROH Ballet Live:
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Monday 23 October7.15pm

ROH Ballet Live:
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

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.

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…

 

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.

Opera The World's Wife
Saturday 28 October7.30pm

The World's Wife

Carol Ann Duffy's The World's Wife poetry collection becomes a chamber opera by trailblazing  young composer Tom Green.

Scored for soprano, string quartet, and loop pedals, The World’s Wife is a musical adaptation of Duffy’s poems presenting actions and stories of famous men of history and myth from their spouses’ perspectives. The feminist approach to the literary collection is further strengthened in Green’s work, as his score includes musical quotes of music by female composers – better known or forgotten – ranging fom Clara Schumann to Barbara Strozzi. The musical staging of The World’s Wife thus features double revenge from the female point of view: not only do women re-tell world-renowned stories in their own words, but often overlooked musical works by women are here celebrated and become the perfect commentary to accompany the presented tales.

Cast & Creative Team: Composer Tom Green, Soprano Amanda Forbes, with the Mavron String Quartet, Director Ed Madden, Designer Grace Smart.

The World’s Wife is sung in English with surtitles in English

THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL

(A New Production)

The Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’ The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name.

The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Over a period of two nights encapsulated in three acts we are engaged by an ever more sinister and bizarre turn of events.

Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,”

Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.

Thrown together for a while alone father and son find a magical world with Christopher's toys. This interlude inspires Milne to write the magical stories, of Winnie the Pooh and his friends. The whole family are swept up in the success of the book which, with its escapism and charming childish innocence, chimes in a   traumatised and embittered post World War 1 Britain.

The Devil's Violin

bring us

STOLEN

Daniel Morden transports you to the Land of No Return, his storytelling served by the hypnotic string accompaniment of Sarah Moody and Oliver Wilson-Dickson.

The ensemble will take you on an epic journey, through a dreamlike land where you will encounter a king turned to stone, an old woman living in the claw of a giant cockerel and a glass man filled with wasps.

The essence of all cinema, theatre and literature is a gripping tale well told. By weaving traditional stories into an epic narrative The Devil’s Violin return us to that essence. STOLEN is a tale of lost loves, bravery, and above all else, hope. 

No guards met him at the palace.

He made his way through a great pair of gates.

Through chambers that echoed with his footsteps.

He came to a hall thick with fog - was that a statue?

No, not a statue but the King himself.

The King of this country, as still and grey

as the stone his throne was made from.


“You could hear a pin drop...like the air was all onstage with them. The music is divine.” Bristol Old Vic

Community The Ucheldre Rep presents: DUETS Thursday 30 November7.30pm

DUETS  

by Peter Quilter

"DUETS" is an award winning comedy.   It deals with four separate stories and four sets of characters.

Jonathan (Peter Preston) and Wendy (Karen Ankers) are on a "Blind Date", hoping   to get it right this time, even though they never have before.  


Secretarial Skills" introduces us to Barrie (Mike Gould) who is not interested in woman, while Janet, his secretary, (Donna Jones) sees that as no reason to stop trying. 



In "The Holiday", we meet Shelley (Caroline Tattersall) and Bobby (Brian Davies) who have decided to holiday in Spain to finalise their divorce while drowning in cocktails.   


Finally in "Bride-to-Be", Angela (Sandra Fraser) is marrying for the third or  fourth time much to the dismay of her brother Toby (Andy Littlefield) and amidst a barrage of bad omens, not to mention a dress resembling a parachute.  

"Duets" highlights the chaotic world of love, relationships

and why the grass is never greener.

 The Art of Fiction 

a creative writing workshop with Rob Mimpriss

Introduced by Fiona Owen The art of fiction involves the balancing of  two very different skills. On the one hand, we place our characters within a believable world, both natural and built, and within an economy and society which provides and limits our characters' opportunities, and which they struggle against, or find their place within. On the other hand, we seek to explore the inner lives of our characters, and the stories, true or false, which they tell about themselves, as heroes, as victims or as villains. This seminar will draw on characters from Wales and America, the novel and the short story, to explore the ways in which realistic fiction can be enriched by the myths which are concealed within us all.

Sunday 3 December7.30pm

Royal Welsh College Big Band:

Duke Ellington's Nutcracker Suite

Join them this Christmas for American pianist, composer and bandleader Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn's jazz interpretation of Tchaikovsky's the Nutcracker Suite.

In the second half of the programme the band pay homage to Ella Fitzgerald where the Big Band will be joined by some of RWCMD’s greatest jazz divas recreating some of Ella’s winter jazz classics such as Winter Wonderland, Let It Snow and The Christmas Song.

Broadcast ROH Ballet Live:
The Nutcracker
Tuesday 5 December7.15pm

Broadcast Live from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden

The Royal Ballet presents:

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 defnitive production for The Royal Ballet ranks as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker. With its festive period setting, dancing snowfakes 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.

Young Marx
Friday 8 December7pm

National Theatre Live

YOUNG 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. Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production  is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.

1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, 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.

Literary Lit Soc: Fiona Owen introduces
Phil Bowen
Friday 13 January1-3pm

'Something else - poetry is the lie that serves the truth'

a workshop with poet and playwright

Phil Bowen

Introduced by Fiona Owen. According to Charles Causley, 'A good poem is always about something else other than what it's about'. Poems don't have to tell the truth but they have to be true to themselves even if they're telling a lie.

Phil Bowen is a poet, performer, biographer and playwright who has worked in over 500 schools in more than thirty counties as a poet-in-education since becoming a freelance writer in 1994. He has published three full collections - Variety's Hammer and Starfly, both with Stride, and Nowhere's Far- New & Selected Poems 1990 -2008 with Salt Publications, printed and reprinted in 2009. http://www.philbowen.co.uk/
