Wise Children (15)

Wise Children

Based on the novel by Angela Carter

Adapted and Directed for the stage by Emma Rice

Filmed live at York Theatre Royal in March 2019


Multi-award-winning director Emma Rice brings her unique, exuberantly impish vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel in this brand-new theatre production. A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope, with a generous dash of Shakespeare, scandal and mischief, taking the audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotion.  


In Brixton, Nora and Dora Chance - twin chorus girls born and bred south of the river – are celebrating their 75th birthday. Over the river in Chelsea, their father - and greatest actor of his generation - Melchior Hazard turns 100 on the same day. As does his twin brother Peregrine. If, in fact, he’s still alive. And if, in truth, Melchior is their real father after all... Performed by a talented ensemble cast, this entertaining, all-singing and dancing show opened to a raft of 4 and 5-star reviews at London’s Old Vic in 2018. Adapted and directed by Emma Rice, the former Artistic Director of Kneehigh and Shakespeare’s Globe, it was filmed for the cinema screen at York Theatre Royal and is ‘pure, unadulterated theatre.’ (★★★★★ Broadway World)


★★★★★

‘Fantastic. Life-enhancing, brilliantly uninhibited, all-singing and dancing... Stars? I’m not sure why you would stop at five.’ The Observer

★★★★★

‘It's pure, unadulterated theatre with an airtight company, subject, direction, and production. Rice not only blind-casts the whole piece, but single-handedly gives a masterclass on how to play with gender.’ Broadway World

★★★★

‘An explosion of theatrical glee’ The Times

★★★★

‘It is a spectacular show, distilling the carnivalesque spirit of the book... Rice’s relaunch is a splashy one, celebrating the sheer razzle-dazzle of a life in theatre.’ The Guardian

ROH Live: Don Giovanni (12A)

ROH Live: Don Giovanni

Mozart's much loved Opera starts our new Royal Opera House Season with style.


Sexual intrigue, jealousy, wit, anger… and retribution! The new Royal Opera Season begins with Mozart’s engaging masterpiece, which follows Don Giovanni, the women he serially seduces, and the vengeance that finally catches up with him. The opera is renowned for its ever-shifting portrayals of complex characters, fast-moving action and mix of the comic and the heartfelt. A cast of international singers – both familiar and making Royal Opera debuts – under conductor Hartmut Haenchen perform the glorious arias and ensembles of this opera favourite.


Don Giovanni is the second of Mozart’s landmark collaborations with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte (after The Marriage of Figaro and before Così fan tutte). In it they created a work that has beguiled and entranced in equal measure since its premiere in 1787. Perfectly situated, as no other opera, between tragedy and comedy, this potent drama combines glorious music with a seductive central character who is endlessly fascinating in his complexity.


Kasper Holten’s 2014 production for The Royal Opera casts Don Giovanni as an artist who thrives on an audience enticed by his creative gifts. The visually spectacular set by award-winning designer Es Devlin features ingenious video designs by Luke Halls which provide an insight into the characters’ thoughts and emotions. But at the production’s heart are the beauty and invention of Mozart’s dazzling score.


Sung in Italian with English subtitles


This is a delayed live screening from The Royal Opera House and is a co-production with Israeli Opera, Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona, and Houston Grand Opera

Coco and the Butterfields + Support

Coco and the Butterfields + Support

“folk-hewn pop, with gliding guitars and a strident vocal” Clash Music


If anyone ever doubted the ability of music to re-route people’s lives, a page from the formative days of Coco and the Butterfields will soon turn that around.


It’s 2012 in the historic city of Canterbury, where Songwriter Tom Twyman has a plane ticket in his hand, for the journey to a new life he’s mapped out for himself in Australia. Singer and multi-instrumentalist Dulcima Showan, meanwhile, has just left sixth form and is all set for art school in Dublin. Neither of them ever makes it though, because by now they’re in the early stages of a band that has very different plans for them.


The decision to stay was difficult at the time and yet so simple in hindsight, it saw the pair lead Coco and the Butterfields on a steady and unmistakable upward incline, developing an enviable reputation for their exhilarating live shows as their inclusive, acoustic-based sound has ripened to maturity. During the ride, they’ve played to enthusiastic audiences all over the UK and Europe, selling out thousand capacity venues, touring the island’s o2 Academy’s and appearing at some of the world’s most prestigious music festivals such as Glastonbury, Isle of Wight and Bestival! On top of this, the band have played numerous support shows for the likes of Bastille, King Charles, Scouting for Girls and Wheatus to name a few.


In recent years Coco have literally lived in their recording studio, taking the time to create a collection of songs that offer an honest and intriguing insight into their lives both together and personally. Starting with an exclusive premiere on Clash Music for their brand new single Monsters, within that description lies a tangible sense of triumph over adversity, and how a negative can be deftly orchestrated into a positive, in the story of Twyman’s tumultuous upbringing.


Constantly touring, constantly writing and never quitting, Coco and the Butterfields will be making music for a long, long time.



Support: Gentlemen of Few

Gentlemen of Few play an eclectic blend of old-time bluegrass and classic rock with skilful vocal harmonies and powerful lyrics.

‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’

ROH Live: Don Pasquale (12A)

ROH Live: Don Pasquale

Royal Opera favourite Bryn Terfel heads the cast for this new production of Donizetti’s comedy of domestic drama across two generations.


Background: This witty story of a middle-aged man whose supposed young wife runs rings around him – with her own ulterior romantic purpose in mind – has long delighted and surprised audiences, not least as presented with the sparkle of its music and the virtuoso skill of its performers. Damiano Michieletto’s exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains.


The Story: Don Pasquale, a wealthy old bachelor, is outraged when he hears his nephew Ernesto intends to marry the impoverished widow Norina. He determines to marry himself and disinherit Ernesto. Ernesto and Norina despair, but their friend Doctor Malatesta promises to help them – and teach Pasquale a lesson. Malatesta persuades Norina to disguise herself as his sister, then presents her to Don Pasquale as a potential bride. Pasquale is so delighted with the young woman’s docile behaviour that he demands they marry at once.


Sung in Italian with English subtitles

Track Dogs

Track Dogs

Sun-shiny songs thriving on dark themes behind irresistible rhythms.


"A total discovery! Think The Eagles mixed with the graceful irreverence of The Pogues!"


“The antidote to a bad day! Four part harmonies steal the show!” - Maverick Magazine


We are delighted to welcome this ‘awesome foursome’ to the Beehive after their stunning performance at this year’s Costa Del Folk, we know that they are going to blow you away with their shiny happy music!


Made up of two Irishmen, an Englishman and an American, the band came together in 2011 to create their unique brand of acoustic music - a veritable 4 x 4 of voices and instruments identified by the fusion of styles which include Folk, Latino, Americana and Bluegrass.The band has a striking line-up of 4-part harmonies, acoustic guitar, ukulele and bass alongside cajón and trumpet with a bit of banjo and mandolin thrown in for good measure!


The Madrid-based band, whose name derives from the maintenance crews working the New York subway system, released their fourth studio album earlier this year, “Kansas City Groove”. It was inspired in part by their recent career-changing experiences at the Folk Alliance in Kansas City in early 2017, and the album is a mix of all that makes theTrack Dogs sound so special: healthy doses of Americana, Latin and Folk.


"Since 2007 the Track Dogs have been creating acoustic music with a strong Latino accent that also successfully draws in folk, bluegrass, Americana and pop. Kansas City Out Groove follows their triumphant 2016 album, Serenity Sessions, an album so packed with sunshine it could be sold as a vitamin C supplement.” - Neil McFadyen, Folkradio.co.uk


“…based in Madrid and with instruments that include cajon, banjo, ukulele, mandolin and trumpet and, rather obviously Spanish guitar, the quartet serve up a south of the border fiesta exuberance that defies you not to stomp the heels and play air castanets….the groove is most definitely on.” - Fatea Magazine, UK


“There’s a rare combination of four great players who also have superb voices, creating stunning individual vocal performances and the almost inevitable perfect harmonies…The playing is outstanding, the harmonies are superb and it’s joyful throughout; just give it a listen.” - Music Riot, June 2018, UK
