The Royal Ballet Live: The Sleeping Beauty

The Royal Ballet Live: The Sleeping Beauty
Part of The Royal Opera House live cinema season.

A perennial delight and a much-loved classic, The Royal Ballet's The Sleeping Beauty combines the best of classical ballet, with all its charms and virtuosity, splendid music and talented dancers. First choreographed to Tchaikovsky's great musical score by Marius Petipa in Russia in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty has wonderful ensembles, solos including the Rose Adageas, Princess Aurora meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess.

The Royal Ballet's landmark staging was revived for the Company's 75th anniversary celebrations in 2006. The designs by Oliver Messell, one of the greatest stage designers of the 20th century, were restored and updated for this production by Peter Farmer. The rich evocations of the baroque opulence of a royal court, the panoramic journey of the prince to the overgrown castle and the colourful characters in this famous fairytale make this Sleeping Beauty a spectacle like no other.

Running time 3 hours.

Stars:Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara

In 1986 a five year old Indian boy fell asleep on a train in Madhya Pradesh after being separated from his brother. He awoke to find himself speeding through the Indian countryside on a gruelling and terrifying journey to the huge Howrah station in Kolkata. There he was adopted by an Australian couple, growing up in Hobart, Tasmania with little recollection of his family or hometown.

25 years later, he tries to piece together what happened to him, and find his birth family. Dev Patel stars in this sober and yet profoundly stirring contemplation of family, roots, identity and home.

THE ODYSSEY (GREEK STUFF!) - RABBIT THEATRE

THE ODYSSEY (GREEK STUFF!) - RABBIT THEATRE
In partnership with Villages in Action

Based (very loosely!) on the epic poem by Homer

The journey of all journeys. To Hell. And back again. Gods, Monsters, Sirens, Derring-Dos and Derring-Donts!
A love story that lasts decades. It’s Greek stuff... with all the boring bits removed!

A host of exciting (and daft) characters - including a one-eyed Cyclops, Circe the sexy sorceress and the terrifying Sea God Poseidon - will conjure up a mighty storm and keep you on the edge of your seat.

Nostalgic Cinema: Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid (PG)

Nostalgic Cinema: Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
Director: George Roy Hill
Writer: William Goldman
Stars: Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Katharine Ross

Paul Newman and Robert Redford star as the legendary bank robbers whose notoriety eventually catches up with them - but only after a barrel-load of adventures that take them from the Old West to Bolivia and back again.

Katharine Ross holds her own amidst the gunfights and bravado as the pretty lady who wins the boys' hearts. William Goldman won an Oscar for a script that shoots as sharply as the characters, while Conrad Hall's splendid cinematography took another and Burt Bacharach's music two more, including Best Song for 'Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head'.

Dementia Friendly Cinemas have proven to be very therapeutic for people with memory problems and their families. Besides engaging the brain and stimulating emotions, being part of an audience enjoying a film helps people with dementia and their carers to feel less isolated and also challenges the stigma associated with the condition.

Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, it is open to anyone who loves the old films and wants to come along for an afternoon of fond memories.

Tickets £3.50. Free tea and biscuits

Director: Pablo Larraín
Writer: Noah Oppenheim
Stars: Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig

Jackie is a powerful depiction of the days immediately following the assassination of John F. Kennedy, seen through the eyes of his widow, flawlessly portrayed by Natalie Portman.

This mesmerising character study creates a captivating and unflinching portrait of private grief amidst one of history's most public tragedies.

Ably supported by Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup and John Hurt, Natalie Portman does not mimic Jackie Kennedy, she becomes her.

Royal Opera House Live: Madama Butterfly (12A)

Royal Opera House Live: Madama Butterfly
Part of The Royal Opera House live cinema season.

ANTONIO PAPPANO CONDUCTS AN IMPRESSIVE CAST LED BY ERMONELA JAHO IN PUCCINI’S DEEPLY POIGNANT OPERA.

Puccini's MADAMA BUTTERFLY is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production.

The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria 'Un bel dì' (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams.

Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice.

Running time approx. 2h 45m (inc. interval)
Sung in Italian with English subtitles.

"No Finer Life" by Graham Harvey

"No Finer Life" by Graham Harvey
Presented by Dogwood Productions
Includes Q&A with writer Graham Harvey

Graham Harvey, for twenty years the Agricultural Story Editor of The Archers and writer of more than 600 episodes, brings to the stage the true tale of an unlikely Cotswold hero and an enduring romance. Graham Harvey will be taking part in an after-show conversation - included in the ticket price - where he will discuss the issues in the play…and all things Ambridge!

The play is set in the Oxfordshire countryside at the end of World War Two, rich in tradition and full of vivid, memorable characters. But this is no nostalgic, bucolic ramble.This is Elizabeth's story...

What inspires a young Somerset land girl to set off in search of a best selling author in the darkest days of war? The story moves between the 1940s and the current day, reflecting that the love of the countryside, the need to protect it and issues of national identity, are timeless.
"When peace is won, we fight for the land we love"…

The show features new live music composed and performed by Alastair Collingwood, who has written scores for numerous theatre shows, including Betty in London's West End, directed by Kathy Burke, and Cora with Dana Gillespie, which also toured the USA. His TV credits include the title music for French and Saunders (BBC1), Mad About Alice (BBC 1), Rhona (BBC 2), Vanessa's Real Lives (ITV 1) and How Clean Is Your House? (Channel 4), amongst many others.

Elizabeth is played by Roberta Bellekom, a graduate of Oxford and East 15 Schools of Drama. She has played Shakespeare's Miranda in The Tempest, also appearing in productions of Animal Farm, Waiting for Godot, and One Way, a play she also wrote. Other roles include Grace in Vaughn Williams, for BBC Radio Three; The March Hare in Alice in Wonderland (Nova Festival), Ophelia in Hamlet (Lincoln) and Ellen in Violent Laugh for Blue Dumbo Films.

The show is supported using public funding by Arts Council England

Phil Beer Band

Phil Beer Band
Plus support band: The Hawthornes

The Phil Beer Band performs a unique blend of folk and roll trawled from Phil's treasure trove of traditional tunes and American country rock.

The highly popular line up comprises Gareth Turner, Steve Crickett, Greg McDonald, Olivia Dunn and of course, Phil Beer and promises to deliver a lively cocktail of folk, rock, country and blues.

The Phil Beer Band evolved organically in the early to mid 90s at Maisemore in Gloucesteshire. It was a loose federation consisting of Phil Beer (Show of Hands) Nick Quarmby and Steve Crickett, all of whom lived close to each other, and melodeon player Gareth Turner from Northamptonshire. There was a need in the community for a band to play local events and ceilidhs and, following in the tradition set by the Albion Band (of which both Gareth and Phil were former members) the band always interspersed the dances with the odd song.

Basically, over a long period of time, it has evolved into a 'Folk n Roll' band with country rock overtones. It is the vehicle for Phil to return to the electric guitar and to have a good time with his mates. The band has seen many members and many tours but has been fairly inactive in the last five years. That's about to change. The Band's first full tour for a long time takes place next May with a new studio album in place. They look forward to seeing you then.

Press Reviews:

‘Where Steve Earle and Richard Thompson collide’ - The Guardian

‘Phil Beer can turn his hand to almost every stringed instrument known to man’ - The Scotsman

‘The Band offers a fast, frenetic, feel-good evening with a generous helping of humour and sees Phil picking up his electric guitar for a change’ - North Devon Echo

The Eskies

The Eskies
Having been cast out, blacklisted, rejected and ejected from gentlemen’s clubs far and wide, five dejected cast asides joined forces in what was to be their own celebration of commonality.

Purveyors of music that meanders from sea soaked waltz to Italian tarantella, from Brassy funeral march-esque lament to weep along Klezmar knees up, from chain gang holler to rag time finger snap. Skipping through the dark side of anything that makes you want to dance, steeped in melodrama and usually with not a small amount of tongue in cheek.

The Eskies have brought this unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to ballrooms and booze houses far and wide, sullying soirees and lowering inhibitions of get togethers and social occasions wherever they have ventured.

Their debut album ‘After The Sherry Went Round’ is in shops now and is also available for download from iTunes.

“Like a wagon storming the citadel, The Eskies’ brand of gothic-tinged gypsy-folk swaggers out of the speakers with intent.” – Hot Press Magazine

“From the sinister sway of ‘Eloise’ through to the jaunty ‘Jesus Don’t Save Me’ and the driving ‘Jailhouse Sun’, The Eskies have delivered a fascinating blend of fun-fuelled folk.” – The Independent

''Think Gogol Bordello if they'd stumbled, naked and raving, out of the Dublin mountains rather than Eastern Europe.'' - Craig Fitzpatrick, Hot Press
