Saturday 19 January 3pm

MONDAY ART GROUP SHOW

SIOE GRWP CELF DDYDD LLUN

 

The MAG was established in 2007, evolving from the then WEA group, for local aspiring artists to meet under the guidance of our tutor – artist Sue Griffiths.

We explore techniques, study the works of renowned painters and sculptors with the aim of developing our own personal styles.

Early on MAG was affiliated to the AAAC ( Association of Anglesey art clubs) which allowed members to enter the biennial art competition at Oriel Mon. Many of our members, past and present, have successfully exhibited at this competition and won major prizes.

Our group now has 18 members, all living on Anglesey, who meet on a weekly basis. This will be the first MAG solo show.  

 

Sefydlwyd y grŵp yn 2007, gan esblygu o'r grŵp WEA fel yr oedd ar y pryd, er mwyn i artistiaid lleol gyfarfod o dan arweiniad ein tiwtor – yr arlunydd Sue Griffiths.

Byddwn yn archwilio technegau, yn astudio gwaith paentwyr a cherflunwyr enwog gyda'r nod o ddatblygu ein dulliau personol ein hunain.

Yn gynnar, roedd y Grwp yn gysylltiedig â'r AAAC (Cymdeithas clybiau celf Ynys Môn) a oedd yn caniatáu i’n haelodau ymgymryd yn y gystadleuaeth gelf bob dwy flynedd yn Oriel Mon. Mae llawer o’n haelodau dros y blynyddoedd wedi arddangos yn llwyddiannus yn y gystadleuaeth hon ac wedi ennill prif wobrau.

Erbyn hyn, mae gan ein grŵp 18 o aelodau yn cyfarfod yn wythnosol a phob un ohonom yn byw ar Ynys Môn. Dyma fydd sioe gyntaf Grwp Celf ddydd Llun.

Exhibition runs until Sunday 10 March

The Queen of Spades
Tuesday 22 January6.45pm

The Royal Opera

presents

The Queen of Spades

In Tchaikovsky’s intense opera of obsession and the supernatural, Gherman is caught between the woman he loves and a destructive fixation. The Queen of Spades is based on a short story by Pushkin, and comes to the Royal Opera House in a new production that has already garnered five- star reviews in Amsterdam. The production is set in 1890, the year of the opera’s premiere. In his study, Tchaikovsky imagines the opera into life as his own story, its characters giving voice to his unfulfilled desires. Aleksandrs Antonenko and Eva-Maria Westbroek head the cast and Royal Opera Chorus, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera. This is an engrossing portrayal of a tortured creative artist and a gripping piece of gothic storytelling.

La Traviata
Wednesday 30 January6.45pm




The Royal Opera

La Traviata

Giuseppe Verdi

From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heartbreaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La traviata is one of the most popular of all operas. Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing.

Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles

I'm Not Running

by David Hare

I’m Not Running is an explosive new play by David Hare, premiering at the National Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas.

Pauline Gibson has spent her life as a doctor, the inspiring leader of a local health campaign. When she crosses paths with her old boyfriend, a stalwart loyalist in Labour Party politics, she’s faced with an agonising decision.

What’s involved in sacrificing your private life and your piece of mind for something more than a single issue? Does she dare?

Hare was recently described by The Washington Post as ‘the premiere political dramatist writing in English’. His other work includes Pravda and Skylight, broadcast by National Theatre Live in 2014.

Against the backdrop of early 18th Century England a frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne. Her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and temper. A new servant, Abigail (Emma Stone), arrives. Whilst politics and war distract Sarah, Abigail takes full advantage in order to fulfill her ambitions. She will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

Music Iwan Llewelyn-Jones Saturday 2 February7.30pm

The Great Romantic 

Chopin

Iwan Llewelyn-Jones returns to the Ucheldre Centre in 2018-19 to perform four recitals that explore the captivating piano music of Frédéric Chopin, and specifically the Nocturnes and Waltzes. Timeless masterpieces brimming with beguiling charm and sparkling wit.

Each recital will highlight the influences brought to bear on Chopin by his predecessors with works by Bach, Mozart, and the composer credited with giving birth to the Nocturne, John Field.

Conversely, the ways in which Chopin’s ground-breaking pianistic style shaped the music of future generations will be reflected in performances of piano works from across the globe: Fauré, Ravel and Debussy (France), Schumann (Germany), Grieg (Norway), Liszt (Hungary), Paderewski (Poland) and Rachmaninov (Russia), together with Britten (Great Britain), Liebermann (USA) and Sculthorpe (Australia).

Join Iwan on this musical odyssey as he shares his unique insights into Chopin’s world.

This, the second recital of the series, showcases:

Mozart: Sonata in B flat K.333 Chopin: Nocturnes Op. 15 and Op. 27

Valses Op. 34 and Op. 42 Paderewski: Nocturne op. 16 No. 4

Rachmaninov: Preludes Op. 23 nos. 4-7 Op. 32 Nos. 5 and 12

Met Opera Encore

Carmen

Georges Bizet

Mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine reprises her remarkable portrayal of opera’s ultimate seductress, a triumph in her 2017 debut performances, with impassioned tenor Roberto Alagna as her lover, Don José. Louis Langrée conduct Sir Richard Eyre’s powerful production, a Met favourite since its 2009 premiere.

Bizet’s masterpiece of the gypsy seductress who lives by her own rules has had an impact far beyond the opera house. The opera’s melodic sweep is as irresistible as the title character herself, a force of nature who has become a defining female cultural figure. Carmen was a scandal at its premiere but soon after became a triumphal success and has remained one of the most frequently staged operas in the world.

Cracked

By/Gan Emily Hinshelwood

Directed by Louise Osbornand & Designed by Becky Davies

How do you know when you have crossed the line?

Would you even know that you had crossed the line?

Mick Evans has a problem. Well, a few problems really. His childhood imaginary friend, Cavelle, has become an inner voice that torments him at every turn.

If that wasn’t enough, his professional life is in tatters as a result of his attachment to Stewart, an unruly pupil. The system doesn’t suit people like Mick, people who don’t conform, people who don’t toe the line... people like Stewart Skinner.

But how did it get this bad? And how do you get back when you have hit rock bottom?

Cracked is a moving, thought-provoking play about vulnerability, mental well-being and the universal need for love.

Features adult themes/strong language. Suitable for age 14+

Supported by the Arts Council of Wales, Welsh Government and the National Lottery

This event runs alongside a workshop also to be held at Ucheldre


Cyfarwyddwyd gan Louise Osborn

Dyluniwyd gan Becky Davies

 

Sut rydych chi'n gwybod eich bod chi wedi croesi'r llinell?

A fyddech chi hyd yn oed yn gwybod eich bod chi wedi croesi'r llinell?

Mae gan Mick Evans broblem. Wel, sawl problem a dweud y gwir.

Mae ei ffrind dychmygol o'i blentyndod, Cavelle, fel llais mewnol sy'n ei boenydio ar bob cyfle.

A phe na bai hynny'n ddigon, mae ei fywyd proffesiynol ar chwâl o ganlyniad i'w ymlyniad â Stewart, disgybl afreolus. Dyw'r system ddim yn hoffi pobl fel Mick, pobl nad ydynt yn cydymffurfio, pobl nad ydynt yn ufuddhau... pobl fel Stewart Skinner.

Ond sut aeth pethau mor wael? Sut rydych chi'n codi unwaith eto ar ôl bwrw'r gwaelod?

Drama deimladwy sy'n ysgogi'r meddwl am ddiamddiffynnedd, lles meddyliol a'r angen cyffredinol am gariad yw Cracked.

Yn cynnwys themâu oedolion/iaith gref. Yn addas i blant 14+ oed

After years of repression and censorship writer Meltem Arikan moved to Wales where she feels a deep sense of belonging. In a state of personal crisis, her Turkish-speaking, repressed, rigid self Mel meets her Welsh-speaking, adventurous, nature-loving self Tem for the first time. Written by Meltem Arikan, with Welsh-language parts by Sharon Morgan, Be Aware’s new play is an exploration of belonging, identity and language. All shows will be accessible for English speakers.

[Turkish]  Yıllar süren baskı ve sansür sonucunda yazar Meltem, derin bir aidiyet duygusu hissettiği Galler’e taşınır. Kendi içinde yaşadığı büyük kırılma sırasında, Türkçe konuşan, bastırılmış, rijit kişiliği Mel, Galce konuşan maceraperest, doğa düşkünü kişiliği Tem ile karşılaşır.

Oyun İngilizce konuşanlar tarafından da takip edilebilecek.

Pan symudodd yr awdur Meltem Arikan i Gymru, yn dilyn blynyddoedd o orthrwm a sensoriaeth yn Nhwrci, fe gafodd deimlad dwfn o berthyn. Yng nghanol cyfnod o argyfwng personol, mae’r Mel gaeth, anhyblyg o Dwrci yn cyfarfod y Gymraes Gymraeg, anturus ac hoff o natur, Tem, am y tro cyntaf.

Don Quixote

Choreographer Carlos Acosta after Petipa

Composer Ludwig Minkus

Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho Panza. At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri.

Carlos Acosta chose this joyful classic for his first production for The Royal Ballet. His vibrant staging brings together the whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers. The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea. Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

La Fille du Régiment

Gaetano Donizetti

Tenor Javier Camarena and soprano Pretty Yende team up for a feast of bel canto vocal fireworks—including the show-stopping tenor aria “Ah! Mes amis,” with its nine high Cs. Maurizio Muraro is the comic Sergeant Sulpice, with mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe as the outlandish Marquise of Berkenfield. Enrique Mazzola conducts.

This frothy comedy mixes humour with a rush of buoyant melody and notorious vocal challenges. The story concerns a young orphan girl raised by an army regiment as their mascot and begins at the moment of her first stirrings of love. Complications (and comedy) ensue when her true identity is discovered. The action is startlingly simple and unencumbered by intricate subplots, allowing the full charm of the characters and their virtuosic music to come across in an uninhibited way.

Die Walküre

Richard Wagner

In what is expected to be a Wagnerian event for the ages, soprano Christine Goerke plays Brünnhilde, Wotan’s wilful warrior daughter, who loses her immortality in opera’s most famous act of filial defiance. Tenor Stuart Skelton and soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek play the incestuous twins Siegmund and Sieglinde. Greer Grimsley sings Wotan. Philippe Jordan conducts.


The second opera in Wagner’s monumental Ring cycle, Die Walküre has long stood on its own as an evening of extraordinarily powerful theatre. Part of this appeal lies in its focus on some of the Ring’s most interesting characters at decisive moments of their lives: Wotan, the leader of the gods; his wife, Fricka; his twin offspring, Siegmund and Sieglinde; and, above all, Wotan’s warrior daughter Brünnhilde. These characters and others follow their destinies to some of Wagner’s most remarkable music.

Philip Clouts Quartet

Joined by rising star saxophonist Samuel Eagles, bassist Tim Fairhall and drummer Kiran Bhatt, Philip Clouts brings his musical journey alive with superb musicianship and infectious vigour.

Cape Town-born pianist/composer Clouts’ South African roots have inspired a voyage of discovery that has led to him soaking up the joyful passion of Caribbean calypso, the bluesy melodies of middle eastern praise songs, the exuberant sway of Cuban dance music and the tuneful essence of Gospel while honouring jazz heroes including Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, and Charles Lloyd.

As a key member of the popular London-based world jazz ensemble Zubop and its offshoot ZubopGambia, with BBC World Music award-winner Juldeh Camara, Clouts created a solid body of work with African roots and since moving to Dorset UK in 2006 he has responded to his new surroundings with impressionistic compositions that complement his world music interests, resonating with strong themes and packing a mighty rhythmical punch.

Charles-François Gounod

An opera in five acts:

There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling. Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès.

Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris. Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognizable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus conducted by Dan Ettinger

Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end.
Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.

When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one would believe her. Shakespeare wrote this play in the early 1600s, yet it remains astonishingly resonant today.
