ROH La Traviata
FROM:30-01-2019
TO:30-01-2019
+ More Info +

Richard Eyre’s beautiful production provides the perfect setting for verdi’s opera about a courtesan who sacrifices all for love.

SUNG IN ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

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.

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.

Jonathan Foyle - The Origins of the Tudor Rose
FROM:12-02-2019
TO:12-02-2019
+ More Info +

This talk distils several years of original research on a much-misunderstood aspect of royal and national symbolism: the 'Tudor rose'. Close inspection of court arts reveals the monarchs we call ‘Tudor’ from 1485-1603 never used it to represent their union of the houses of York and Lancaster. So where did it come from? Late medieval art was rich in floral imagery, and a fuller understanding of how roses were used in sculpture, manuscripts and engravings to convey the qualities of Christ and the Virgin Mary completely revises the significance of the symbol in royal usage, revealing its long-hidden origins - and from where our understanding originates.

ROH Don Quixote
FROM:19-02-2019

Love and friendship triumph in Carlos Acosta’s vibrant production of this dazzling ballet.

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.

Don Pasquale
Donizetti
With new libretto by Daisy Evans

Follow the exploits of Don Pasquale in this riotous new version of Donizetti’s classic comic opera. Set in and around Pasquale’s doner kebab van, it’s the story of an old bachelor’s romantic delusions and the young lovers who outwit him.

Don Pasquale brings together a cast of larger-than-life characters, including Pasquale’s young nephew Ernesto and his girlfriend Norina, as well as local geezer Malatesta and his travelling band who hang around Pasquale’s kebab van after their long nights of boozing.

Welsh National Opera brings Daisy Evans’ brilliant new production to venues across Wales and England throughout the summer of 2019, following on from the success of Elena Langer’s Rhondda Rips It Up! in 2018.

Don Pasquale features a small cast and an on-stage orchestra like you’ve never seen or heard before.

In and Out of Chekhov’s Shorts
FROM:20-09-2019
TO:20-09-2019
+ More Info +

Chekhov is one of the great writers of the 20th Century and these tales remain as memorable and bracing as jumping into a cold plunge pool after a hot sauna!

Featuring original live music and stylish ensemble story-telling, In and Out of Chekhov’s Shorts is an exhilarating, fun and accessible romp through some of the best of Chekhov’s short stories including The Lady with the Little Dog, The Chemist’s Wife, At a Summer Villa, An Avenger and The Bear.

These wonderful hymns to the absurdity of everyday life, are by turns hilarious, romantic, poignant, odd and memorable. They hold the mirror up to the half-comic, half-painful experience of love and relationships and create a world in which the tender and the grotesque are inextricably linked. Ludicrous situations and larger than life characters abound in an evening that simply cannot be missed!

Opened in April 1997, as the first wholly funded Lottery new build arts organisation in the UK, Theatr Brycheiniog is built alongside the canal basin in the heart of Brecon serving the town and surrounding area, The venue currently provides a varied programme of theatre, dance, music and entertainment in its purpose built 477 seat auditorium and 120-seat studio/rehearsal space. It also hosts an exhibition programme in the Gallery. The theatre serves not only its community through an outstanding programme of quality professional English and Welsh language productions. It is home to the Brecon Baroque Festival and Brecon Jazz Futures which attracts audiences and visitors nationally and internationally.
