Live From The Royal Ballet

Swan Lake  (12A)

(postponed until further notice from the ROH)

Liam Scarlett’s glorious production of Swan Lake, new in 2018, returns for its first revival.

While remaining faithful to the Marius Petipa/Lev Ivanov text, Scarlett’s additional choreography and John Macfarlane’s magnificent designs breathe new life into what is arguably the best-known and most-loved classical ballet.

The entire Company shines in this eternal tale of doomed love, a masterpiece filled with iconic moments.

Tchaikovsky’s first score for ballet soars with its symphonic sweep and combines perfectly with exquisite choreography from the grand pas de deux of Prince Siegfried and Odile to the swans at the lakeside. An intoxicating mix of spectacle and intimate passion, the overall effect is irresistible.

Iwan at Ucheldre

Beethoven in Love

(We are sorry to have to postpone this event due to COVID-19)

In 2020 the classical music world pays tribute to one of its most endearing and remarkable sons, Ludwig van Beethoven. Iwan Llewelyn-Jones returns to Ucheldre to mark the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth with a series of recitals that feature the piano music of this extraordinary composer.

Each programme delves into Beethoven’s colourful personality with a selection of his best loved works, ranging from the serious and dark (‘Pathètique’ and ‘Moonlight’ Sonatas) to the light and humorous       (‘The rage over the lost penny, given vent in a Caprice’ and ‘Für Elise’).

Beethoven’s ability to convey a strong sense of narrative in his music had a profound effect upon successive generations of composers. Frédéric Chopin, Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms and Gabriel Fauré responded by composing innovative and exciting piano works bearing the title ‘Ballade’, a selection of which will be performed at these recitals.

The third in his 2019/2020 series of Piano recitals

Easter In Art

The story of Christ’s death and resurrection has dominated western culture for the past 2000 years. It is perhaps the most significant historical event of all time, as recounted by the gospels but, equally, as depicted by the greatest artists in history. From the triumphant to the savage, the ethereal to the tactile, some of western civilization’s greatest artworks focus on this pivotal moment.

This beautifully crafted film explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of the early Christians to the present day. Shot on location in Jerusalem, United States and throughout Europe, the film explores the different ways artists have depicted the Easter story through the ages and thus depicts the history of us all.

by Mike Brooks

Will she be pleasantly surprised?

HAVE A(NOTHER) GO!

Dan Watson's solo show VENUS is inspired by his own childhood and uses dance, theatre and comedy to tell the story of winning, losing and having another go.

In this workshop he will share some of the techniques he used to create VENUS and invite you to have a go yourselves

You will be introduced to a variety of games and tasks that playfully invite you to discover your own (physical) approach to performance making - drawing inspiration from your own stories and learning how to connect to each other and your audience.

We will move, we will speak, we will share and we might even be a bit silly. Hopefully you will have fun. No experience is necessary but you MUST be willing to have a go. And maybe another go after that.

As a child Dan lost a British holiday-camp dance competition. Largely because he totally misunderstood what competitive dance was, and they didn’t play his song of choice, Venus by Bananarama. This performance enacts the version of the event that he would have liked to happen, had he known better, been braver, had a Little Miss Sunshine moment.

ROH Opera Live

Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci (12A)

(postponed until further notice from the ROH)

Two opera classics are drawn together in this wonderfully observed re-creation of life in a south Italian village as a travelling theatre visits and emotions erupt.

The award-winning production by Damiano Michieletto presents vividly the fast-moving, shocking events brought about by secret love and uncontrollable jealousy. The music is full of Italianate melody in the great choruses that bring the villagers together in celebration and revelry, alongside the solo arias and tense confrontations that provoke violence and tragedy.

With thrilling singing and intense drama, ‘Cav and Pag’ distils into one wonderful night out, the enduring appeal of Italian opera in its most familiar form.

Juliet & Romeo

This event is currently in limbo and dependent on Developments and /or Government rulings


With Lost Dog’s blend of dance, theatre and comedy this duet reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after. Well they lived at least.

Now they’re 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love. They have decided to confront their current struggles by putting on a performance – about themselves. Their therapist told them it was a terrible idea.

Directed by Olivier Award nominated Ben Duke, Juliet & Romeo takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity.

Lucy Kirkwood's The Welkin

One life in the hands of 12 women.

The Welkin is an unpredictable, gritty, thriller. A bold story packed with tension and dark humour, told in a striking, contemporary way.

Rural Suffolk in England, 1759. As the country waits for Halley’s comet, a young woman is sentenced to hang for a heinous murder.

When she claims to be pregnant, a jury of 12 matrons are taken from their housework to decide whether she’s telling the truth, or simply trying to escape the noose. With only midwife Lizzy Luke prepared to defend the girl, and a mob baying for blood outside, the matrons wrestle with their new authority, and the devil in their midst.

James Macdonald (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) directs Maxine Peake (The Theory of Everything, Funny Cow) and Ria Zmitrowicz (Three Girls, Mr. Selfridge) in this bold and gripping thriller from Tony Award-nominated writer Lucy Kirkwood (Chimerica, Skins).

Heroic Beethoven

In 2020 the classical music world pays tribute to one of its most endearing and remarkable sons, Ludwig van Beethoven. Iwan Llewelyn-Jones returns to Ucheldre to mark the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth with a series of recitals that feature the piano music of this extraordinary composer.

Each programme delves into Beethoven’s colourful personality with a selection of his best loved works, ranging from the serious and dark (‘Pathètique’ and ‘Moonlight’ Sonatas) to the light and humorous (‘The rage over the lost penny, given vent in a Caprice’ and ‘Für Elise’).

Beethoven’s ability to convey a strong sense of narrative in his music had a profound effect upon successive generations of composers. Frédéric Chopin, Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms and Gabriel Fauré responded by composing innovative and exciting piano works bearing the title ‘Ballade’, a selection of which will be performed at these recitals.

Frida Kahlo

This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the life of one of the most prevalent female icons: Frida Kahlo. She was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life. Guided with interview, commentary and Frida’s own words, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN uncovers that this, however, was not a life defined by tragedy.

Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN explores the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real Frida Kahlo.

Using cinema to take an up-close and intimate look at her works we examine how great an artist she can be considered. Displaying a treasure trove of colour and a feast of vibrancy on screen, this personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience and her unmatched lust for life, men, women, politics and her cultural heritage.

We might think we already know Frida Kahlo – the image of floral crowns, big brows and folk style clothing have made her a muse to generations – but what lies beneath the surface of this intensely passionate woman?

“I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality” Frida Kahlo

Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors

A man arrives in a strange town only to find that everyone knows his name, but thinks he’s someone else.

“So I to find a mother and a brother

In quest of them, unhappy, lose myself”

How do any of us really know who we are? A man arrives in a strange town only to find that everyone knows his name, but thinks he’s someone else. A woman wonders why her husband is not the man he was, but starts to rather like it. Confusion mounts as everyone uncouples from themselves. Will they ever find themselves again?

Jack Absolute Flies Again

by Richard Bean and Oliver Chris

based on Richard Brinsley Sheridan's The Rivals.

A riotous new comedy.

From the writer of One Man, Two Guvnors comes a hilarious new play set in 1940s British summer time.

After an aerial dog fight, Pilot Officer Jack Absolute flies home to rejoin his fearless young Hurricane squadron at RAF Fontwell. Once back on British soil Jack is shocked to find his old flame, Lydia, on the base. He sets his sights on winning her heart, but with turbulence and hilarity never far away, his advances quickly turn to anarchy.

Thea Sharrock (Me Before You) directs this joyous farce

Shakespeare's Pericles

    Shakespeare’s touching and hopeful tale of loss and reconciliation located in a familiar world of precarious journeys.

 

Forced to flee his native land, Pericles becomes a refugee at the mercy of sea and strangers. Scarred by the heart-breaking loss of family and home, he submits to the rhythms of the ocean in the hope of a miracle. Located in a familiar world of precarious journeys and treacherous alliances, this is Shakespeare’s touching and hopeful tale of loss and reconciliation.

 Director Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC after her acclaimed Titus Andronicus (2017) and The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).
