Life With the Signora

A reminiscence in word and song about Maria Callas written and directed by Jamie-Glyn Bale

With Anne Williams-King as  Maria Callas

Marian Bryfdir as Bruna Lupoli


Maria Callas - “La Divina” - the most famous singer in the world sacrificed her career and ultimately her life for a man who used and then rejected her.

Her rapid rise to international stardom; the transformation from hefty Wagnerian soprano to glamorous and svelte diva; her relationship with Aristotle Onassis (responsible for the premature decline in her vocal powers); her ill-advised comeback and finally her lonely death in Paris in 1977 are recalled by Bruna Lupoli, her maid for 18 years in a reminiscence in word and song. Some of the great operatic arias associated with Maria Callas are performed live by international soprano Anne Williams-King accompanied by Marian Bryfdir as Bruna and the performance is directed by Jamie-Glyn Bale.

Anne Williams-King  was born in Wrexham  and has sung principal roles in major opera houses all over the world (including la Scala Milan and Covent Garden). Her performances as Salome and Lady Macbeth of Mtzensk received great critical acclaim. Her many operatic roles parallel those of Callas e.g. Butterfly , Leonora, Tosca and  she has a particular interest in the Italian belcanto repertoire.

Marian Bryfdir is a leading vocal coach having given masterclasses and workshops in Italy , Spain  USA and in 2015  China . She now teaches at Bangor University and at the Ucheldre Centre . Anne and Marian have recently established the North Wales Opera Studio in Llangollen.

Jamie-Glyn Bale was director of the” La Palabra Teatro” company in Andalucia (awarded the VIII TEA de Toledo award for most promising small company) and winner of the “Desencaja 2014” prize.  He  returned to the UK this year and has a particular interest in theatre and social issues, drama therapy and has specialised in gender based theatre.

Sunday 27 November 7pm

The Australian Ballet's Fairytale Season

Cinderella


Cinderella is the second ballet in The Fairytale Season from The Australian Ballet.

As Cinderella (Lana Jones) works to support her stepmother (Amy Harris) and sisters (Ingrd Gow and Eloise Fryer), she watches as they prepare for the magnificent ball being held by the Prince of the land (Daniel Gaudiello), knowing that they will not let her attend. A beloved and well known rags to riches story continues with the Fairy Godmother (Nicola Curry) working her magic to make this truly glamorous and romantic story some to life.

Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderalla will sweep you off your feet with original music by Sergei Prokofiev and Costume and Set Design Jérome Kaplan. As “effervescent and fun as festive champagne” (Daily Telegraph)
