Music Welsh Chamber Orchestra
Saturday 14 December7.30pm


The Welsh Chamber Orchestra

The Welsh Chamber Orchestra brings us an intriguing programme with traditional Christmas music interlaced with music inspired by the East.

Handel’s overture to his opera Giulio Cesare in Egitto (Julius Caesar in Egypt), excerpts from Messiah and the popular Arrival of the Queen of Sheba will feature alongside music by Lully and Beethoven. Talented young North Wales violinist Louie McIver has been the leader of the National Youth Orchestra of Wales and is currently a student at Cambridge University. He will play Mozart’s 5th Violin Concerto which was influenced by the music of Turkey. A new song cycle by up and coming Welsh composer Nathan James Dearden will be performed by baritone Jeremy Huw Williams.

Corelli’s Christmas Concerto is well known to audiences, Giuseppe Torelli’s Concerto for the Holy Nativity is relatively unknown and will round off the evening.

Jeremy Huw Williams has a distinguished international career and is a champion of contemporary composers, commissioning and performing new works across Wales and in many parts of the world.

The Welsh Chamber Orchestra enjoys bringing new music to audiences along with classics of the chamber orchestra repertoire. Its director and founder, Anthony Hose, was formerly Head of Music and choral director of the Welsh National Opera and has just conducted complete performances of Handel’s Giulio Cesare in America.

Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Cordon, Idris Elba, Jason Derulo, Rebel Wilson, Judi Dench and Ian McKellen all come together this Christmas, joining visionary director Tom Hooper (Les Miserables, The King’s Speech) for the cinema event of the year.

CATS tells the story of a Young kitten abandoned in London, who encounters a tribe of cats who come together once a year – the night of the Jellicle Ball. One by one they tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.

Each Cat shows off their distinctive personalities shine through via song & dance.  The tribe’s decision nearing, a marginalized cat, Grizabella, attempts to overcome prejudice and bullying from the group to be selected. However, her dreams are threatened by the re-emergence of the villainous Macavity, who is determined to become the chosen cat by any means necessary.

From the mind of Andrew Lloyd-Webber, Cats is one of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history. It received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981 where it played for 21 record-breaking years and almost 9,000 performances.

This production of The Sleeping Beauty has been delighting audiences in Covent Garden since 1946. A classic of Russian ballet, it established The Royal Ballet both in its new home after World War II and as a world-class company.

Sixty years later, in 2006, the original staging was revived, returning Oliver Messel’s wonderful designs and glittering costumes to the stage. Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score and Marius Petipa’s original choreography beautifully combine with sections created for The Royal Ballet by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon.

This ballet is sure to cast its spell over anyone who sees it.

Puccini’s opera of young love in 19th-century Paris is packed with beautiful music, including lyrical arias, celebratory choruses for Act II’s evocation of Christmas Eve in the Latin Quarter and a poignant final scene over which the composer himself wept. Richard Jones’s character-led production perfectly captures La Bohème’s mixture of comedy, romance and tragedy, with striking designs by Stewart Laing.

The cast features some of the greatest interpreters of Puccini’s bohemian lovers performing today:

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.

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.

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.

From The Royal Ballet

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.
