ROH Don Quixote
FROM:19-02-2019
TO:19-02-2019
+ More Info +

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.

Choreography: Carlos Acosta
After Marius Petipa
Music: Ludwig Minkus
Arranged And Orchestrated By Martin Yates

In October 2007 Ray Gravell, a man who for many embodied what it is to be Welsh, passed away after succumbing to complications resulting from contracting diabetes. He was 56 years old.
Known to millions for his legendary exploits on the rugby field, ‘Grav’ was and is so much more than that. An actor, a cultural icon, a father, a husband, a man with a life packed full of stories that deserve to be heard once more.

Gareth J Bale reprises the role of ‘Grav’ in this remarkable one-man show exploring the life and times of one of Wales’ most loved sons, Ray Gravell, written by Owen Thomas.

With the blessing of Mari, Ray’s widow, and contributions from his Welsh and British Lions team mates, this one-man show will explore the life of a man who was as fascinating away from the rugby field as he was on it.

FROM:25-02-2019
TO:25-02-2019

Simon Russell Beale plays William Shakespeare’s Richard II, broadcast live from the stage of the Almeida Theatre in London to cinemas.

This visceral new production about the limits of power will be directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins, whose previous plays include Little Revolution at the Almeida and Absolute Hell at the National Theatre.

Richard II, King of England, is irresponsible, foolish and vain. His weak leadership sends his kingdom into disarray and his court into uproar. Seeing no other option but to seize power, the ambitious Bolingbroke challenges the throne and the king’s divine right to rule.

Simon Russell Beale returns to National Theatre Live screens following broadcasts of Timon of Athens and King Lear, and his recent role in the National Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of The Lehman Trilogy.

We all seek interaction, connection and validation. The light before us promises us all this and more.

The glow of our mobile phones invites us to be appreciated, cherished and loved. The challenge of stepping out on stage offers us something similar.

As the performers emerge from the darkness and into the light, are they illuminated or are they exposed?

Do we dare step into the light? Are we merely moths to its flame?

Directed by Frantic Assembly’s Scott Graham and incorporating an international cast of performers with and without learning disabilities, Hijinx & Teatro la Ribalta’s Into the Light is daring physical theatre about the right to be seen and heard, performed by those we need to see and hear.

Author of the No. 1 Sunday Times bestseller, Prisoners of Geography, Tim Marshallwill be speaking about his new book Divided: Why We’re Living in an Age of Walls.


Which side of the fence are you on? Every story has two sides, and so does every wall. We’re in a new era of tribalism and the barricades are going up.

Money, race, religion, politics: these are the things that divide us. Trump’s wall says as much about America’s divided past as it does its future. The Great Firewall of China separates ‘us’ from ‘them’. In Europe, the explosive combination of politics and migration threatens liberal democracy itself.

Covering China; the USA; Israel and Palestine; the Middle East; the Indian Subcontinent; Africa; Europe and the UK, in this gripping talk Tim delves into our past and our present to reveal the fault lines that will shape our world for years to come.

Taking Flight Theatre with The Riverfront and Chapter present peeling by Kaite O’Reilly

In shadow, never centre stage, 3 performers await their brief moment in the light. But who would want to explore these bodies? Who will receive their stories? Their words have been buried in dust, through the long corridor of time. We will unearth them here. We will hear them echo in the darkness.

This city will fall.

Alfa, Beattie and Coral wait… wait while once more the action plays out elsewhere. Once more they form the chorus to someone else’s lead.

But… this city will fall.

With interwoven BSL, live audio description and English captions at every show, peeling will challenge audiences to experience theatre afresh. Who gets to make art? Whose stories do we use? And who will be there to/ bear witness?

Pinocchio
FROM:19-03-2019
TO:19-03-2019
+ More Info +

Pinocchio is the story of a child free from prejudices: he’s disobedient and mischievous, yet at the same time naïve. Really naïve. Geppetto, his father, tries to watch over his education. In return, Pinocchio, ever disobedient, is drawn into a series of adventures which will make him grow as a person and very nearly… with a surprising end.

This is a fantastic and fabulous new interpretation. Paper and wood are used to create a production which is multifaceted and organic, through which we can dive into the imagination of a child-puppet - a tale which invites us to reflect on values such as education, graft, responsibility and sincerity.

No language.

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.
