Indian Summer – Iwan Lewis

There is a sense of a non western island culture that pervades Iwan’s latest paintings. The viewer is presented with what could be a catalogue of the Islander’s own paintings - scenes of his home, loved ones, objects and daily existence.

Broadcast Nick Cave and 20,000 Days on Earth Wednesday 17 September7pm

Nick Cave and 20,000 Days on Earth

20,000 DAYS ON EARTH is a bold vision of one of music’s most mysterious and charismatic figures, the iconic Nick Cave. In their debut feature directors Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard fuse drama and documentary by weaving a cinematically staged day in Cave’s life with never-before-seen verité observation of his full creative cycle.

The film delves into Cave’s artistic processes, unpicking the stuff that makes him tick. We meet those who have affected his life, personally and professionally, including hilarious moments shared with his regular collaborator, the multi-instrumentalist and epic beard-wearer Warren Ellis; actor and friend Ray Winstone; and Kylie Minogue, whom Cave duetted with on his mainstream hit single Where The Wild Roses Grow. These voices from the past revisit Cave in daydream-like scenes as he sits behind the wheel driving through his adopted hometown of Brighton, England. 

The film constructs a narrative and cinematic reality that seamlessly blends performance and storytelling with emotional truths. Avowedly neither a music documentary nor a concert film, 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH still contains electrifying performances. We see a song grow from the tiniest of ideas sketched out by Cave in his office to a monstrous epic performed by the peerless Bad Seeds on stage at Sydney Opera House. We also witness Cave open up to psychoanalyst Darian Leader as he discusses how his early years continue to inform his work, and later join him on a journey through his personal archive. This category-defying film possesses the same frankness and wry humour that run through all of Cave’s work, and pushes the form into new territory, exploring universal themes and celebrating the transformative power of the creative spirit.

Rhwng Led by Fiona Owen and Eileen Dewhurst

Saturday 4 October10am-4pm

Rhwng Led by Fiona Owen and Eileen Dewhurst


Each Rhwng event takes a theme as its starting point in order to explore - through creative and explorative writing, poetry, story, metaphor and myth – ways to connect ideas with experiences, words with world, inscape with outscape. ‘Rhwng’ (‘between’): an integrating word, opening as space, relationship, question.

As the days shorten and autumn deepens, we will explore themes of transition, shifts, surrender and maturation through a consideration of that fine line between different modes of writing – the therapeutic and the art-making. It is open to all levels of ability and interest, with no creative or therapeutic writing experience necessary. Please bring pens, notebooks and any friends who might be interested – and, if possible, something related to the seasonal theme to read or sing for the final session.

Fiona Owen writes poetry and prose, and her publications include Going Gentle and Imagining the Full Hundred, with Screen of Brightness co-written with poet Meredith Andrea. The Green Gate will be published by Cinnamon in 2015. Fiona teaches creative writing, literature and other arts subjects for the Open University, is training as a Focusing Practitioner, writes songs with Gorwel Owen and runs ‘Rhwng: the Point Between’ events at Canolfan Ucheldre Centre.

Eileen Dewhurst is an experienced health professional with a diploma in therapeutic counselling.  She has an MA in Creative Writing and has published both poetry and short stories. She has a long-standing interest in the role of creativity in the process of healing.

Broadcast Manon
Thursday 16 October7.15pm

ROH Live: Manon (Ballet)

Manon Lescaut is a beautiful young woman who falls prey to the moral corruption of 18th-century Paris. Kenneth MacMillan brings Manon’s story vividly to life, with his ballet, which evokes the brutality and decadence described in Abbé Prévost’s infamous novel, as well as the feckless character of Manon herself – torn between love for the poet Des Grieux and her desire for money and attention. The cast of complex characters includes the callous Monsieur GM, the swaggering Jailer, Manon’s roguish brother Lescaut and his coquettish Mistress, but at the ballet’s heart are the duets MacMillan created for Manon and Des Grieux, which are among the most emotionally intense and erotically charged ever choreographed.

Broadcast I Due Foscari (Giuseppe Verdi opera) Monday 27 October7.15pm

ROH Live: I Due Foscari (Giuseppe Verdi opera)

Plácido Domingo returns to give his first London performances of another major Verdi baritone role. I due Foscari is based on a play by Byron set in 15th-century Venice. The two Foscari of the title are the city’s Doge, Francesco Foscari (sung by Domingo) and his son, Jacopo (Francesco Meli), who has been brought back from exile to face charges of treason. Jacopo is innocent, but neither the pleas of Jacopo’s wife Lucrezia (Maria Agresta) nor those of his powerful father are enough to save Jacopo from condemnation by the hostile Council of Twelve. This taut, sombre drama provides the basis for one of Verdi’s most arresting early scores, not heard at the Royal Opera House since 1995 and newly presented in an acclaimed staging by the American director Thaddeus Strassberger, which had a much praised premiere in Los Angeles in 2012 and has gone on to further success in Valencia and Los Angeles.

Cast to include:

Film NT: Frankenstein Encore 2014 (15)
Thursday 30 October7pm
NT: Frankenstein
A Halloween special as National Theatre Live’s thrilling Frankenstein returns to the Ucheldre screen for one night only.

Directed by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield Park) as Victor Frankenstein, and Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, Star Trek: Into Darkness) as his creation.

The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world. Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker.

Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

Welcome return of the Ronstadt Generations representing the multi-cultural roots America was founded upon. Dating back five generations in North America, Michael J. Ronstadt, younger brother of Linda Ronstadt, continues the family tradition with his two sons, Michael G and Petie. These three voices - all multi-instrumentalists and solo artists in their own right - bring to life a repertoire that reaches back to the end of the 19th century while continually looking ahead into the 21st, with a rich innovation of original material alongside traditional Southwestern and Mexican songs.  Each comes with the highest credentials, having appeared around the world in performance and on recordings with such diverse artists as Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, the Dixie Hummingbirds, Muriel Anderson, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and countless others.

Exhibition Emma Knowles
Saturday 8 November4pm

Portraits Old and New • Portreadau Hen a Newydd

An exhibition of striking new portraits by Manchester based artist Emma Knowles. Her work aims to make a connection to the sitter, to consider and explore the complexity of the visual experience and the underlying tensions, emotions and overwhelming power of presence the individual possesses. She seeks to strip back any distractions, and to reveal the basic, raw material through paint.  Amongst other more recent work will be a section called Closer which is a series of portraits of sitters five years on from when she last painted them. She believes these to be ‘closer’, more urgent by eliminating clothing, and distraction in terms of background colour, revealing a ‘nude’ colour palette.


Arddangosfa o bortreadau newydd trawiadol gan yr arlunydd o Fanceinion, Emma Knowles. Mae ei gwaith yn ceisio creu cyswllt â’r eisteddwr, ystyried ac archwilio presenoldeb y profiad gweledol a’r tensiynau o dan yr wyneb, yr emosiynau a’r grymllethol o bresenoldeb sydd gan yr unigolyn.

The Words We Use are Black and White.

Well known to many as the tutor of the MIND Creative Writing Course held in Ucheldre, it is with great pleasure that tonight sees the launch of Simon Holloway’s new novel, The Words We Use are Black and White.

Set in Evian on the shores of Lake Geneva the novel follows the interaction between friends and family with the arrival of a newcomer from Geneva.

‘A compelling story of human relationships. Holloway’s intriguing characters struggle to communicate in a world steeped in images of language.  A hugely enjoyable read.’ – David Crystal

Broadcast Hockney: Live from LA Tuesday 25 November7pm

An exclusive gala screening of the highly anticipated new feature film HOCKNEY, followed by an in-depth conversation with David Hockney from his Los Angeles studio, broadcast live onto the Ucheldre’s big screen. 

Hockney is the definitive exploration of one of the most significant artists of his generation. For the first time, David Hockney has given access to his personal archive of photographs and film, resulting in an unparalleled visual diary of a long life.

The film chronicles Hockney’s vast career, from his early life in working-class Bradford, where his love for pictures was developed through his admiration for cinema, to his relocation to Hollywood where his life long struggle to escape labels (‘queer’, ‘working class’, figurative artist’) was fully realised.

Paradoxically, this escape to live the American Dream did not break the ties to the childhood that formed him. We see his upbringing and life experiences give him the willpower to survive relationship problems, and later the AIDS epidemic, but also allow him to create some of the most renowned works of the past century.

Acclaimed filmmaker Randall Wright offers a unique view of this unconventional artist who is now reaching new peaks of popularity worldwide, as charismatic as ever, and at seventy seven still working in the studio seven days a week.

L’Elisir D’Amore (Donizetti opera)

Wednesday 26 November7.15pm
ROH Live: L’Elisir D’Amore (Donizetti opera)

Donizetti’s romantic comedy of rural life shines brilliantly in Laurent Pelly’s hilarious staging, which matches the piece’s perfect blend of sentiment and tomfoolery. Italian conductor and former Jette Parker Young Artist Daniele Rustioni conducts a starry cast. Lucy Crowe takes the dazzling soprano lead as Adina, the most sophisticated woman in the village, loved from afar by Vittorio Grigolo’s handsome but shy Nemorino.

Nemorino meets a worrying rival in Levente Molnár’s braggart Sergeant Belcore, until the love potion sold to him by Bryn Terfel’s larger-than-life travelling quack, Dr Dulcamara, gives him a powerful dose of courage – with both comic and touching results.

Literary Rhwng: ‘The lighting of the lamps’ Saturday 6 December10am

Rhwng: ‘The lighting of the lamps’

Led by Fiona Owen and Dr Keith Beasley

Each Rhwng event takes a theme as its starting point in order to explore - through creative and explorative writing, poetry, story, metaphor and myth – ways to connect ideas with experiences, words with world, inscape with outscape. ‘Rhwng’ (‘between’): an integrating word, opening as space, relationship, question. As the year deepens and we move towards the longest night, we will explore themes of light-in-darkness, losing, finding and new birth. What IS the creative spark? Or en-lighten-ment? How does this light help us to truly see and to really know? The day is open to all levels of ability and interest. Please bring pens, notebooks and, if possible, something related to the theme to read or sing (of your own or others’ work) for the culminating session of the day.

Fiona Owen writes poetry and prose, and her publications include Going Gentle and Imagining the Full Hundred, with Screen of Brightness co-written with poet Meredith Andrea. The Green Gate will be published by Cinnamon in 2015. Fiona teaches creative writing, literature and other arts subjects for the Open University, is training as a Focusing Practitioner, writes songs with Gorwel Owen and runs ‘Rhwng: the Point Between’ events at Canolfan Ucheldre Centre.

Keith Beasley has a rare ability to embrace mind, body and soul in all he does. Originally trained as an electronic engineer he then took up Reiki Healing, eventually running retreats in Portugal. In 2013 he completed his PhD at Bangor University on Transcending Thought– higher level of consciousness. He is now a visionary with the Body Mind Institute, a life coachand soft-skills trainer, always open to new ways of integrating the creative process into his life and work.

Alice's Adventures In Wonderland (ballet)

Tuesday 16 December7.15pm

ROH Live: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (ballet)

Christopher Wheeldon’s full-length ballet based on Lewis Carroll’s book is an exuberant piece of storytelling featuring an instantly recognizable cast of characters, among them a tap-dancing Mad Hatter, a tetchy White Rabbit and a raucously bad-tempered Queen of Hearts. 

Wheeldon, along with  composer Joby Talbot and designer Bob Crowley, have created a genuine family ballet in the spirit of Carroll’s much-loved children’s classic. While regular ballet goers can appreciate nods to other famous works – there’s a parody of the Rose Adagio from The Sleeping Beauty, for example, with jam tarts instead of flowers – the ballet is above all a brilliant realization of Carroll’s zany dream-world featuring stunning choreography, a colourful score and ingenious stage-magic..

Andrea Chénier (Giordano opera)

Thursday 29 January7.15pm
ROH Live: Andrea Chénier (Giordano opera)

Umberto Giordano’s Andrea Chénier (1896) presents a fictionalized account of the last years of the French poet André Chénier, guillotined during the Reign of Terror in 1794. It is the greatest of Giordano’s operas, and shows why Puccini sometimes feared Giordano as a rival. Taking the starring role of Chénier, with its three marvellous arias, is Jonas Kaufmann, Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek sings the role of Chénier’s beloved Maddalena (which includes the great aria ‘La mamma morta’, a favourite with Maria Callas) and Serbian baritone Željko Lučić stars as Carlo Gérard – the servant-turned-revolutionary who is Chénier’s rival for the love of Maddalena. With a string of successful productions for The Royal Opera to his name, including Rigoletto and Les Troyens, director David McVicar brings Giordano’s thrilling historical drama back to the Royal Opera House for the first time since 1985 in a stunning new production.

(The Tales of Hoffmann)

The magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer of the title of Offenbach’s operatic masterpiece, in the Met’s wild, kaleidoscopic production. Soprano Hibla Gerzmava faces the operatic hurdle of singing all three heroines—each an idealized embodiment of some aspect of Hoffmann’s desire. Thomas Hampson portrays the shadowy Four Villains, and Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score.

On the heels of her triumphant Met performances in Eugene Onegin, soprano Anna Netrebko takes on another Tchaikovsky heroine in the first opera of this intriguing double bill, consisting of an enchanting fairy tale (Iolanta) followed by an erotic psychological thriller (Duke Bluebeard’s Castle).

Netrebko stars as the beautiful blind girl who experiences love for the first time in Iolanta, while Nadja Michael is the unwitting victim of the diabolical Bluebeard, played by Mikhail Petrenko.

Both operas are directed by Mariusz Trelinski, who was inspired by classic noir films of the 1940s. Iolanta also stars Piotr Beczala, and Valery Gergiev conducts both operas.

Tuesday 24 February7.15pm
ROH Live: Der Fliegende Hollander (Wagner opera)

Wagner’s first masterpiece explores the themes of damnation and redemption that would fascinate the composer throughout his career. In this tale of a captain forced to sail the seas for eternity unless released by the faithful love of a good woman, and the lonely girl who longs to save him, Wagner created two unforgettable characters operating near the limits of human emotion. Tim Albery’s atmospheric 2009 modern-dress staging provides an ideal platform on which Bryn Terfel’s turbulent Dutchman and Adrianne Pieczonka’s visionary Senta will explore their passions and struggle to find salvation in a hostile world.  Admired for his Wagner interpretations with the CBSO and at Bayreuth, Andris Nelsons returns to steer the orchestra through Wagner’s stormy score.

Broadcast Swan Lake (Petipa ballet) Tuesday 17 March7.15pm
ROH Live: Swan Lake (Petipa ballet)

Swan Lake, surely the greatest of all Romantic ballets, is the captivating story of a beautiful woman transformed into a swan, and a heart-rending tribute to the power of love. Swan Lake is a perfect synthesis of choreography and music and, though Tchaikovsky did not live to see it become a success, his first ballet score is now synonymous with ballet itself, inspiring generations of dancers and crossing over into popular culture.

 From the earliest days of the Vic-Wells Ballet, Swan Lake has been one of The Royal Ballet’s signature works. In creating this production, Anthony Dowell aimed to return to an authentic version of the choreography created by the great Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov for the Mariinsky Theatre in 1895. Yolanda Sonnabend’s designs draw on the Russian Imperial Court of that period with an inspired blend of historical accuracy and gothic fantasy. The court scenes of Acts I and III have a dark glamour rooted in the opulent style of Carl Fabergé, while the famous lakeside ‘white’ acts are rich with mist, shadow and moonlight.

Rise and Fall, City of Mahogany (Weill opera)

Wednesday 1 April7.15pm

ROH Live: Rise and Fall, City of Mahogany (Weill opera)

Kurt Weill, Mahagonny was first performed in Leipzig in 1930. Its first ever Royal Opera staging, by Associate Director of Opera John Fulljames, is sung in English, and conducted by Mark Wigglesworth – recently announced as the successor to Edward Gardner as Music Director of English National Opera. Mahagonny is a satire on money, morality and pleasure-seeking among the dubious citizens of a fictional city. The richly varied, jazz-infused score, influenced by ragtime music, includes such irresistible melodies as the ‘Alabama Song’ and many dramatic ensembles. The superb cast includes Kurt Streit as the wild lumberjack Jimmy, Christine Rice as his sweetheart Jenny, Anne Sofie von Otter in a welcome return to The Royal Opera as the cunning Leokadja Begbick, and Peter Hoare and Willard W. White as her helpers and fellow-fugitives Fatty and Moses.

Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village.


Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.

ROH Live: La Fille Mal Gardée (Ashton ballet)

Frederick Ashton's final full-length ballet is one of his most joyous creations, inspired by his love for the Suffolk countryside. It is based on an 1828 French ballet and the music was adapted by John Lanchbery from Ferdinand Hérold's original score. La Fille mal gardée was a resounding success on its premiere in 1960 and has remained a firm favourite in The Royal Ballet's repertory. The title translates as 'The Wayward Daughter'.

La Fille displays some of Ashton's most virtuosic choreography – the youthful passion of Lise and her lover, Colas, is expressed in a series of energetic pas de deux. The ballet is laced with good humour and a whirl of dancing chickens, grouchy guardians and halfwit suitors take to the stage. Ashton affectionately incorporated elements of national folk dance into his choreography, from a Lancashire clog dance to a maypole dance, making La Fille mal gardée (despite its title) The Royal Ballet's most emphatically English work. Osbert Lancaster's colourful designs reinforce the robust wit of the production.

The Fureys

Legends of Irish music & song The FUREYS, renowned for their hit songs ‘I will love you’, ‘When you were sweet 16’, ‘The Green fields of France’, ‘The old man’, ‘Red rose café’, ‘From Clare to here’, ‘Her father didn’t like me anyway’, ‘Leaving Nancy’, ‘Steal away’ etc will perform once again in Ucheldre.

The FUREYS have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 37 years, audiences that have included former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, Former Irish President Mary McAleese and the late Pope John Paul while Tony Blair has publicly stated his favourite peace song of all time is the FUREYS “Green Fields of France”. Recently Ireland President Michael D Higgins attended their concert in Dublin’s National Concert Hall. 

The band was formed in 1978 literally by accident. George, Paul and Davey were playing in Denmark with their own band called the Buskers and Eddie and Finbar, while touring in Germany were involved in a road accident. When George and Paul got news of the accident they immediately travelled to Germany to be with their brothers. They then decided that they should all be playing together and this was the start of the FUREYS. 

Inevitably changes have occurred over 30 years. Their brother Paul died suddenly in June 2002 and Finbar left the band in December 1996, however George and Eddie have continued to delight audiences on their tours and have just released a new CD ‘The times they are a changing’. 

The oldest of the brothers, Eddie Furey left home in 1966 and travelled to Scotland at the time of the great folk revival where he met and shared accommodation in Edinburgh with then unknown folk singers Billy Connolly, Gerry Rafferty and Alex Campbell, now all famous in their own right. In 1969 with his brother Finbar, he was the special guest for the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem throughout the USA and Canada. In 1971 he moved to mainland Europe where he toured for seven years, building up a huge following particularly in Germany. Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics has credited Eddie with teaching him his first chords on guitar when they met up in the North East of England while Dave was still a teenager. 

The FUREYS are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination. Their folk based music has received standing ovations in some of the biggest concert halls of the world and they credit their musical ability to their parents, Ted and Nora, who were well known musicians themselves. They encouraged their sons to play music from a very early age and there was live traditional music in their house almost nightly. 

Their emotive songs stir many emotions….tears and laughter, sadness and joy. 

A FUREYS concert is always a night to remember

ROH Live: Guilaume Tell (Rossini opera)

Opening with what is arguably the most exciting of all operatic overtures, Rossini’s final opera helped to lay the foundations of the genre of French grand opéra that dominated European stages throughout the mid-19th century. The opera’s theme is liberty, as exemplified in the struggle against Austrian occupation led by the Swiss archer and patriot Guillaume Tell: in the opera’s most famous scene, Tell shoots an apple from his son’s head, a feat that inspires his countrymen to revolt. Rossini’s score is one of his most outstanding, and packed with glorious arias, choruses and ensembles, as those who have heard Antonio Pappano’s admired recording – which also features Gerald Finley (Tell), John Osborn (Arnold) and Malin Byström (Mathilde) – will know. The exciting young Italian director Damiano Michieletto makes his debut with what promises to be a spectacular and thought-provoking production.
