Royal Ballet Live: Swan Lake

Royal Ballet Live: Swan Lake

CHOREOGRAPHY MARIUS PETIPA AND LEVIVANOV

ADDITIONAL CHOREOGRAPHY LIAM SCARLETT AND FREDERICK ASHTON

MUSIC PYOTR IL'YICH TCHAIKOVSKY


The Royal Ballet presents a new production of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent classical ballet, with additional choreography by Liam Scarlett and designs by John Macfarlane.


Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934. This Season The Royal Ballet creates a new production with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett. While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet, in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.


Prince Siegfried chances upon a fl ock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.


Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score. Given its status today as arguably the best loved and most admired of all classical ballets, it is perhaps surprising that at its premiere in 1877 Swan Lake was poorly received. It is thanks to the 1895 production by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov that Swan Lake has become part of not only ballet consciousness but also wider popular culture. That success is secured not only by the sublime, symphonic sweep of Tchaikovsky’s score, but also by the striking choreographic contrasts between Petipa’s royal palace scenes and the lyric lakeside scenes created by Ivanov.



The performance lasts about 3 hours, including two intervals.

6 Hands: John Williams, John Etheridge & Gary Ryan, guitars

6 Hands: John Williams, John Etheridge & Gary Ryan, guitars

After many years of playing together John Williams and John Etheridge are joined by classical guitarist and composer Gary Ryan in a wonderful, varied programme of solos, duos and trios. All pieces will be introduced by the players.


John Williams


Legendary classical guitar maestro whose repertoire ranges from the standard Baroque and Spanish classics to more innovative contemporary works. Born in Melbourne, Australia, he was taught the instrument by his father and went on to study music at the Royal College of Music in London. He has since toured many countries playing solo and with orchestras. He has also appeared regularly on radio and television - and his music is familiar to many film-goers, most notably The Deerhunter (Cavatina). He has collaborated with many outstanding musicians, including Julian Bream, Itzhak Perlman, Andre Previn, Cleo Laine and John Dankworth. The complete collection of his 58 CD’s (and one DVD) for Sony/CBS was issued in 2016. In 2007 he was presented with an Edison lifetime achievement award.


'John Williams is the undisputed king of the classical guitar' (The Times).



John Etheridge


One of the world's most respected guitarists, John Etheridge's music spans a myriad of styles and influences. The guitarist for the celebrated jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli, Etheridge has performed as one half of a duo with the eminent classical guitarist, John Williams and has also performed with Soft Machine, Pat Metheny, Andy Summers and Nigel Kennedy.


'I never wanted to be a star, just a highly respected musician like John Etheridge' (Sting in The Guardian).


Gary Ryan


Gary Ryan is one of the world’s leading exponents of the guitar and has performed to international critical acclaim for over twenty years, winning praise for his formidable technique, outstanding musicianship and entertainingly diverse programmes.


In 2013 he became the first guitarist since John Williams in 1983 to be awarded a Fellowship of the Royal College of Music in recognition of his contribution to the instrument, and only the fourth guitarist ever to receive this honour -  other recipients being Andrés Segovia and Julian Bream.


His celebrated guitar compositions (regularly broadcast on Classic FM) have broadened the instrument’s appeal by combining traditional classical guitar technique with more contemporary styles and a rich variety of musical influences from around the world. His solo work, Benga Beat, was premièred to great acclaim in 2011 and can be seen on YouTube in HD, alongside other performances of his own compositions and works by Dowland, Bach, and Piazzolla.

4 Girls 4 Harps - East Devon Music Festival

“Ensemble is watertight and there is a real rhythmic élan to the playing which keeps you listening.”

— BBC Music Magazine


The Girls with their Harps came to The Beehive two years ago and we are particularly pleased that they are playing the first concert of the new East Devon Music Festival. More poignantly, this is a memorial concert to Jean Price, harpist and a keen supporter over many years of the Honiton Festival, which would be celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.


Harriet Adie has transcribed the majority of the music which is ‘Celebrating Dance’ in its various guises. With works by Handel, Ravel, Khachaturian, Piazzola, Borodin, Prokofiev, Debussy and Manuel de Falla, the programme is set to give us a foot-tapping evening and make the Beehive buzz!

The Cherry Orchard - Miracle Theatre Co.

The Cherry Orchard - Miracle Theatre Co.

**Open Air Theatre at Smeatharpe Stadium**

in partnership with Villages in Action and Carn to Cove.


This summer, Miracle Theatre Company unpacks Chekhov’s bittersweet comedy about a once-wealthy family, whose idleness and extravagance have brought them to the brink of bankruptcy. Obstinate and self-absorbed, they are deaf to the rumblings of change which surrounds them, and unable to accept help when they need it.


Will it take a revolution to destroy their cosy world of privilege and entitlement – or will their own stupidity be enough?


Bill Scott’s new adaptation treads the tragicomic tightrope, bringing out all the humour and pathos of Chekhov’s masterpiece which, more than a century after it was written is as popular as ever.


Cornwall’s award winning Miracle Theatre has developed a strong reputation for producing entertaining and dynamic adaptations of classic plays.


Go and see for yourself this summer!

The Mill on the Floss - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

The Mill on the Floss - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

Presented by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School


By George Eliot

Adapted by Helen Edmundson

Directed by Paul Clarkson

WEST COUNTRY TOUR 2018


“They had entered the thorny wilderness, and the golden gates of their childhood had for ever closed behind them.”


In this fluid and visceral re-imagining, Helen Edmundson (Queen Anne, Coram Boy, The Heresy of Love) turns George Eliot's unforgettable story of first love, sibling rivalry and regret into a wonderfully theatrical examination of the psyche of one of classic literature’s most charismatic heroines.


Brought up at Dorlcote Mill, Maggie Tulliver worships her brother Tom and is desperate to win the approval of her parents, but her passionate, wayward nature and her fierce intelligence bring her into constant conflict with her family.


As she reaches adulthood, the clash between their expectations and her desires is painfully played out as she finds herself torn between her relationships with three very different men: her proud and stubborn brother Tom; hunchbacked Phillip Wakem, the son of her family's worst enemy; and the charismatic yet dangerous Stephen Guest.


With its poignant portrayal of sibling relationships, The Mill on the Floss is considered George Eliot's most autobiographical novel and here Edmundson loses none of its breadth, whilst beautifully examining the complex nature of relationships and love.  


‘With rare theatrical vibrancy, Helen Edmundson’s free adaptation distils the essence of George Eliot’s feminist novel’ – Evening Standard


‘…not only re-invents the novel, but pushes the boat out theatrically way beyond its usual mooring' - The Guardian


‘An intensely moving dramatisation – stylised, but free of empty theatrics’. - The Times


Opened in 1946 by Laurence Olivier, the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School has grown a reputation for attracting the very best in young acting talent and has some notable alumni to its name including Daniel Day Lewis, Greta Scacchi, Peter O’Toole, Olivia Colman and many more. The annual West Country tour gives you a chance to see the stars of tomorrow, on stage today!

There is no way they’re following any hipster templates – fronted by a big burly man with a mohican who sings impassioned political songs of broken Britain whilst his band seethes like a punky Levellers – they are the music business’s worst nightmare – a great band who are going to make it without anyone’s permission”.

Ferocious Dog's 3rd studio album, The Red Album, was released in November 2017 to rave reviews. The Enemy Within tour will feature tunes from this album as well as old favourites from previous releases.


2016 was a defining year for Ferocious Dog. From playing Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage at Glastonbury in front of a massive crowd, to sharing the stage with The Levellers on their sold out European and UK tour in November and December and many sold out shows in-between. Ferocious Dog left the audience under no doubt that they had witnessed a band that has the talent and passion to go on to dominate the folk/punk music scene.


With European and UK tours completed, and slots at some of the UK’s and European favourite festivals, 2017 was another exciting year so far in the ascent of this exceptional band.


Ferocious Dog offer a full-on six-piece sound that encompasses folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations. The combination of instruments creates a palette of sound that offers infinite variations: going in hard to get the audience up and moving, or slipping into melodic passages and dub-like fusions. The songs are deeply personal and their fans can really identify with the words. Dan Booth, on fiddle, and John Leonard, playing just about everything with strings, bring a huge amount of intricacy to the breakneck pace of their songs. Les Carter (ex Carter USM) on guitar and the rhythm section of Alex Smith and John Alexander hold things together brilliantly, and with Ken Bonsall’s lyrics and sheer likeability, you have a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Ferocious Dog are well known and popular for their high octane live performances.

Martin Harley & Daniel Kimbro

Martin Harley & Daniel Kimbro

Always engaging and far from predictable these 'Two musicians at the top of their game' (Music Riot) seek to push the boundaries of blues, folk and American roots music. Original compositions on Slide guitar, double bass, harmony vocals and good humoured banter are cornerstones of their live shows.


Between them they are very much on the world stage and have performed at Glastonbury, The Royal Albert hall, the Ryman Auditorium, Grand Ole Opry, Bonnaroo, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, MerleFest, Bottle Rock,The Edmonton Folk Festival, New Orleans Jazz Fest, The Blue Note Tokyo, Cognac Blues festival, Cayamo and many more. Most recently Daniel toured the US with the Transatlantic Sessions.


The two musicians met through a mutual friend Sam Lewis at Hippie Jack's music festival in Crawford Tennessee. After a brief backstage rehearsal, they took to the stage for an hour of largely improvised music. A few weeks later they were cutting a record at Zac Brown’s iconic Southern Ground. Martin plays a 100 year Weissenborn (Hawaiian acoustic lap guitar), Daniel plucks beats, scratches and bows his upright bass to create and unexpected array of sounds.

The Eskies + support: Black Water County

The Eskies + support: Black Water County

Hailing from Dublin, The Eskies bring their unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to ballrooms and booze houses far and wide. The release of their second album “And Don’t Spare The Horses” on Absolute Record has cemented their position of one of the best emerging bands from Ireland.


Last year saw them play over 40 festivals in 5 countries, tour Ireland, UK, Netherlands and Switzerland as well as being invited to the influential new music festival Eurosonic Festival. Other notable festival performances included Glastonbury Main Stage Avalon, Main Stage Cambridge and Bestival. They have just finished a tour of Australia which took them to Port Fairy Festival who invited them half way around the planet before they had released a single song!
