Music Iwan Llewelyn-Jones:
Beethoven - A Creative Genius
Saturday 1 February7.30pm

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.

Met Opera Encore

Porgy and Bess

The Gershwins’s modern American masterpiece has its first Met performance in almost three decades, starring bass-baritone Eric Owens and soprano Angel Blue in the title roles.

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.

An Inspector Calls  – for 3 dancers in 3 acts

Choreographed by Sue Lewis

Music - Edward Elgar, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Mike Oldfield

JB Priestley’s play in 3 acts is a superb example of perfect characterisation and an examination of social class.  The main characters Arthur, Sybil, Sheila, Eric, Gerald, Inspector Goode and Eva/Daisy are all played by all of our dancers.  They interchange between the characters; the neutrality of the costumes suggest no gender, the only clue to which character is played is layering and changing of the outer garments which is symbolic of their person.

The first 2 tracks of music by Elgar and Vaughan Williams are beautifully lyrical pieces of instrumental music written by British composers and portray a very evocative image of British landscape and broad rolling countryside. The third track is perhaps more well known, composed by Oldfield and brings us into the 21st Century: it rushes along and is functional and structured.

National Theatre Live 

Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac

James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all - if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano - or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?

Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.

Beethoven's Fidelio


Beethoven’s only opera is a masterpiece, an uplifting story of risk and triumph. In this new production, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Jonas Kaufmann plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen his wife Leonore (disguised as ‘Fidelio’) who daringly sets out to rescue him. Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime.

The music is transcendent throughout and includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners’ Chorus and Florestan’s impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope. Tobias Kratzer’s new staging brings together the dark reality of the French Revolutionary ‘Terror’ and our own time to illuminate Fidelio’s inspiring message of shared humanity.

Swan Lake  (12A)

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.

Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci (12A)

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


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).

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.

Elektra  / Strauss (12A)

Strauss's thrilling and audacious adaptation of Greek tragedy receives a new staging by the award-winning director Christof Loy. This uncompromising opera, about a daughter intent on bloody revenge and a mother driven to madness, has provoked critics to lively debate and both shocked and excited audiences since its 1909 premiere. Antonio Pappano conducts music that combines violence with moments of exquisite tenderness  in his first Strauss interpretation for The Royal Opera since 2002. The outstanding cast includes Nina Stemme in the title role, and Karita Mattila in her role debut as the haunted queen Klytåmnestra.

Beethoven A Creative Genius
Saturday 27 June7.30pm

Iwan at Ucheldre

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.

The last in his 2019/2020 series of Piano recitals

Film Frida Kahlo

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? And do they really want to?

Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, a fairytale farce of everyday miracles, mistaken identity and double vision, is directed by comedy master Phillip Breen (The Provoked Wife 2019, The Hypocrite 2017, The Merry Wives of Windsor 2012).

Miles Jupp will make his RSC debut as Antipholus of Syracuse in The Comedy of Errors
