Lloyd Jones

'Poetry in a Cold Climate: How to Get your Book into Print' 

A workshop on how to self-publish in an overcrowded market, with author Lloyd Jones, who will also read from recent work.

Lloyd Jones is a poet, novelist and photographer. In 2002 he became the first person to walk completely around Wales, a journey of a thousand miles, which inspired his prize-winning novel Mr Vogel (Seren, 2004), with his novel Mr Cassini (Seren, 2006) winning the Wales Book of the Year award in 2007.

Formerly a farm worker, he has been a newspaper editor, a lecturer and a mencap nurse. He writes in both Welsh and English, across the genres, including poetry, short stories and essays, with his recent Collected Poems (2019) and Selected Poems (2019) self-published. He translated the highly successful Welsh novel, O! Tyn y Gorchudd, by Angharad Price: The Life of Rebecca Jones (MacLehose Press, 2014).

Puccini's Madama Butterfly

Anthony Minghella’s vividly cinematic staging of Puccini’s tale of unrequited love returns to our screens featuring soprano Hui He in the heartbreaking title role of the doomed geisha, with tenor Andrea Carè as the American naval officer who abandons her.

One of the most frequently staged operas of our generation, Madama Butterfly follows the story of a young Japanese girl, Cio-Cio-San, who falls in love with Pinkerton, an American naval officer.  Tragedy unfolds in this sweeping production, which is a perennial audience favourite.

Pier Giorgio Morandi conducts one of opera’s most beautiful and heartbreaking scores.  Other members of the cast include Paulo Szot as Sharpless, alongside mezzo soprano Elizabeth DeShong as Suzuki.

Concerto
Sunday 10 November2pm

From The Royal Ballet

Concerto / Enigma Variations / Raymoda Act III

From The Royal Ballet’s classical origins in the works of Marius Petipa, to the home-grown choreographers who put British ballet on the world stage, this mixed programme highlights the versatility of the Company.

Petipa’s Raymonda Act III is Russian classical ballet summarized in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique, while Ashton’s Enigma Variations is quintessentially British in every way – from its score by Elgar and period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, to Ashton’s signature style, the essence of British ballet. MacMillan’s Conceto is a fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completing a programme that shows the breadth of The Royal Ballet’s heritage.

Deathtrap

SIDNEY BRUHL is a renowned Playwright, but following a series of disastrous flops, he is desperate to come up with a winning script.   Is it just possible that the script he now holds in his hand is the very one that will finally put him on top again?   Sidney believes it is, but unfortunately, he has not written it.   It has been sent to him for his approval by a young student called Clifford Anderson, who had attended one of Sidney's seminars.   Seeing the possibility of cashing in on such an opportunity, Sidney invites Clifford to his home with far more on his mind than simply discussing the script.       

Directed by Tom Wallwork, "Deathtrap" takes us on the greatest rollercoaster ride ever with more than a few shocks right up to the very last scene.   A truly gripping suspense thriller not to be missed.

Film Lucian Freud: A Self Portrait Tuesday 14 January5.30pm


Lucian Freud: A Self Portrait

For the first time in history the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud’s self-portraits. The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself.

One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency. Spanning nearly seven decades his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter, from his earliest portrait painted in 1939 to the final one executed 64 years later.

When seen together, his portraits represent an engrossing study into the dynamic of ageing and the process of self-representation. This intensely compelling exhibition creates a unique opportunity for EXHIBITION ON SCREEN to reveal the life’s work of a master in one show.

Iwan at Ucheldre

Beethoven and the Lost Penny

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.

This new co-production with English National Opera and Dutch National Opera was hailed as a triumph at its premiere in London earlier this year. Featuring the much-loved arias “Summertime” and “I Got Plenty o’ Nuttin”, director James Robinson’s stylish production transports audiences to Catfish Row, a setting vibrant with the music, dancing, emotion, and heartbreak of its inhabitants.

The final stage work of George Gershwin, Porgy and Bess is largely regarded as one of the greatest American operas of the 20th Century.

Beethoven in Love

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 Dante Project 

(A World Premier)

Dante’s Divine Comedy is an epic journey through the afterlife: it encompasses the horrifying drama of Inferno and its damned, the lyrical mysticism of pilgrims on mount Purgatorio and the dazzling spheres of Paradiso with their endless configurations of light.

The poem was inspired by the agony of Dante’s own exile, and traces his path from crisis to revelation guided by his literary hero Virgil and his lost love Beatrice.

In this new work, The Royal Ballet’s trailblazing Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor collaborates with an award-winning team – contemporary composer Thomas Adès, artist Tacita Dean, lighting designer Lucy Carter and dramaturg Uzma Hameed – to bring us closer to Dante and his extraordinary vision.
