Nostalgic Cinema: Annie (1982)

Directed by John Huston

Starring Aileen Quinn, Albert Finney, Carol Burnett

Duration 218 mins


An orphan in a facility run by the mean Miss Hannigan (Carol Burnett), Annie (Aileen Quinn) believes that her parents left her there by mistake. When a rich man named Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks (Albert Finney) decides to let an orphan live at his home to promote his image, Annie is selected. While Annie gets accustomed to living in Warbucks' mansion, she still longs to meet her parents. So Warbucks announces a search for them and a reward, which brings out many frauds.



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.


All Nostalgic Cinema performances have subtitles to assist full enjoyment of the film by any members of the audience who are hard of hearing.


Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.


Tickets £5 - includes hot drink, biscuits and chat after the screening.

Ticket price includes £1 admin fee

Seats are not allocated for these showings.

Thelma

Director: Josh Margolin

Running time: 108 minutes

Cast includes: June Squibb, Fred Hechinger, Richard Roundtree


Deceived by a phone scammer pretending to be her grandson, a 90-year-old woman sets out on a quest to reclaim what was taken from her.


Inspired by a real-life experience of director Josh Margolin's own grandmother, THELMA puts a clever spin on movies like MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, shining the spotlight on an elderly grandmother as an unlikely action hero. With infectious humor, Margolin employs the familiar tropes of the action genre in hilarious, age-appropriate ways to tackle aging with agency. In the first leading film role of her 70-year career, Squibb portrays the strong-willed Thelma with grit and determination, demonstrating that she is more than capable of taking care of business -- despite what her daughter Gail (Parker Posey), son-in-law Alan (Clark Gregg), or grandson Danny might believe.

FOS Brothers

FOS Brothers

Introducing the FOS Brothers


The force behind the FOS Brothers has always been Dave and Sam McCrory. Brought up in Belfast during the height of the troubles their sensibilities derive from hard schooling on the streets and strict Northern Irish parents.


Dave left Ireland at the age of 19 and Sam came over 4 years later to form the band, they met Rom Dobbs and have collaborated with him for over 25 years.


Rom's fascination for world music can be attributed to his Dad's influence as head of the music department at Dartington College, however his first taste of gigging was as a drummer for numerous Punk bands.


Pete Bingham is best known for his band Waulk Elektrik who became very popular on the Roots music circuit in the 90’s.


The band move seamlessly from tear jerking Irish ballads to full on Floydian space rock. The FOS Brothers treat their audience to a shared experience and are equally suited to pin drop silence Arts Centres or packed Festival Marquees.

 

They will be performing as a 4 piece during 2024 with occasional guests - Martin Cradick (mandolin and percussion from Baka Beyond, Paul Sax (Violin player from Curved Air) and even Phil Beer (Show of Hands) has been known to join them on stage.


The line up is:

Sam McCrory - Vocals, Guitar

Dave McCrory - Acoustic and Electric Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals

Rom Dobbs - Drums, percussion, samples and loops

Pete Bingham – Bass, Vocals

Nostalgic Cinema: The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) (PG)

Nostalgic Cinema: The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

Starring James Stewart, Doris Day, Bernard Miles

Duration 130 mins


Dr. Ben McKenna (James Stewart) is on vacation with his wife (Doris Day) and son in Morocco when a chance encounter with a stranger sets their trip, and their lives, on a drastically different course. The stranger, killed in front of the family in the marketplace, reveals an assassination plot to the Americans. The couple's son is abducted in order to ensure the plot is kept secret, and suddenly the mother and father, with no help from the police, must figure out a way to get their child back.



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.


All Nostalgic Cinema performances have subtitles to assist full enjoyment of the film by any members of the audience who are hard of hearing.


Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.


Tickets £5 - includes hot drink, biscuits and chat after the screening.

National Theatre Live: Prima Facie (24) (15)

National Theatre Live: Prima Facie (24)

National Theatre Live: Prima Facie

Written by Suzie Miller

Directed by Justin Martin

Running time: 125 minutes


Jodie Comer’s (Killing Eve) Olivier and Tony Award-winning performance in Suzie Miller’s gripping one-woman play returns to cinemas.   


 Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game; defending; cross examining and winning. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.   


 Prima Facie takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game.   

Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live in 2022 during a sold out run at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End.

Sherburn.Bartly.Sanders and Phil Beer

Sherburn.Bartly.Sanders and Phil Beer

An evening with Sherburn.Bartley.Sanders with support act Phil Beer

Running Time: 135 minutes


Sherburn.Bartley.Sanders

Following a chance meeting at Whitby Folk Festival in 1993, Chris Sherburn (Concertina) and Denny Bartley (Vocals and Guitar) have been bringing their unique sound to audiences across Europe and America, creating one of folk music’s most enduring partnerships. Their obvious rapport made them one of the busiest acts on the folk scene, both as a duo and with their well-loved band, Last Night’s Fun. Their soul-stirring songs, exhilarating tunes and quick-witted banter ensures that no two concerts are ever the same.


In 2016, Chris and Denny joined forces with Emily Sanders (fiddle/viola and vocals) and have since become a well-established trio, for the first time blending vocal harmonies, and strings to underpin Chris and Denny’s unique sound, as well as providing a female vocal for some songs, and bringing a repertoire of English folk songs to complement the bands more Celtic roots.


Emily was a founder member of the acclaimed trio Isambarde. She has also toured with Merrymouth (Simon Fowler, Lead Singer of Ocean Colour Scene) and regularly appears with Pete Morton and Chris Parkinson.


Their latest album BEGUILE is the first to feature Chris, Denny and Emily together, and also some stellar guest performances from Martin Simpson and Andy Seward (Kate Rusby Band) and mastered by Phil Beer.


“Chris, Denny and Emily sound good, make you smile and are a great mix – a true chemistry lesson… Superb musicians of the highest order.” Alan Wood, The Barn at Baston


“Sherburn, Bartley and Sanders are a joy to watch… This is what music is meant to be about.” Ant Miles, Downend Folk Club



Phil Beer


Charming, disarming and exceptionally talented, multi-instrumentalist Phil Beer is something of a national treasure on the folk, roots and acoustic scene. One-half of award-winning powerhouse Show of Hands, he is equally in demand for his solo shows. With the odd laugh thrown in for good measure, Beer’s flawless musicianship and rich vocals will leave you wide-eyed and wanting more. Phil is one of the most popular ambassadors for acoustic roots music. A dazzling instrumentalist, he is perhaps best known as a top-flight fiddler but his skills don't stop there: he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitars, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention contributing his rich and remarkable vocals.


Alongside some Show of Hands classics, Phil will deliver his signature interpretation of much-loved folk and rock songs alongside a wealth of brand-new material, and there’ll be the odd laugh thrown in for good measure.

Gigspanner Big Band (24)

Gigspanner Big Band (24)

Gigspanner Big Band


New Album Preview Tour


The Gigspanner Big Band are a unique force in British folk music...


Their high-energy, virtuosic performances appeal equally to traditionalists and to those looking for something more experimental, and they have garnered praise from publications as varied as fRoots, The Telegraph and The Wire, where they were described as ‘melodically folk-rooted yet open and innovative beyond the constraints of genre’


Beginning life as a trio - with legendary Steeleye Span fiddle player Peter Knight being joined by percussionist Sacha Trochet and guitarist Roger Flack - the line-up has been expanded to form the Gigspanner Big Band, with acclaimed multi-instrumental duo Edgelarks (Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin - BBC Folk Awards 'Best Duo') and Bellowhead co-founder and melodeon player extraordinaire, John Spiers, joining the fray.


While Peter Knight, as part of Steeleye Span’s classic 1970s line-up, helped invent a brand of folk rock that is still influential today, John Spiers, has had an equally profound impact on the landscape of traditional music over the last two decades.


Characterised by riotous inventiveness, technically gifted individual playing and subtle collaborative interaction, this coming together of several of the biggest names on the folk-roots scene, combines a deep knowledge of roots traditions with a ceaselessly boundary pushing approach.


Unsurprisingly, the superlatives have come thick and fast..

"Spectacular” 5***** R2 Magazine

"Totally blown away by the spellbinding Gigspanner Big Band. Lost for words..." Folking. Com

Jeanine Tesori / Libretto by George Brant 

Grounded (Met Premiere) 

Tony Award–winning composer Jeanine Tesori’s powerful new opera Grounded premieres at the Metropolitan Opera, wrestling with often-overlooked issues created by 21st-century warmaking: the ethical conflicts created by the use of modern military technology and the psychological and emotional toll supposedly safe remote technology takes on our servicepeople. Canadian mezzo soprano Emily D’Angelo stars as the hot-shot fighter pilot whose unplanned pregnancy takes her out of the cockpit and lands her in Las Vegas, operating a Reaper drone halfway around the world. American tenor Ben Bliss costars as the Wyoming rancher Eric in a production by Michael Mayer that brings this story to life in a high-tech staging which presents a variety of perspectives on the action. Met Music Director Yannick Né zet-Sé guin takes the podium to conduct Tesori’s kaleidoscopic opera.

Budapest Cafe Orchestra

Budapest Cafe Orchestra

Budapest Cafe Orchestra


Christian Garrick & the Budapest Café Orchestra are:


CHRISTIAN GARRICK – violin, darbuka

EDDIE HESSION – accordion

KELLY CANTLON – double bass

ADRIAN ZOLOTUHIN – guitar, saz, balalaika, domra



In 2009 Christian Garrick established the refreshingly unconventional and snappily attired Budapest Café Orchestra.  The intention to present a broad range of music from all over the world in the most entertaining and fun way.  One of BCO's prime directives is to take the music seriously but not so much themselves.  Part of the secret formula of the BCO's show presentation is performing all the music from memory and, combined their trademark wit and charm, audiences leave tingling with warmth and delight.


BCO are one of the very busiest acoustic groups for me today playing an average of 60 to 70 shows per annum.  Since their inception they have recorded one album every year and in January 2023 made their 14th Pavane (& the whole shebang-bang).  BCO are frequent guests to BBC Radio 3’s In Tune and on Martin’s Handley’s weekend Breakfast programmes.


Each member of the orchestra is a freelance musician in their own right.  Both Eddie and Adrian teach prolifically for budding school-age musicians. Christian is a professor of jazz violin at Guildhall School of Music, Royal Academy of Music, and Royal College of Music in London.


Adrian is curator and director of the Imperial Balalaika Orchestra of Overton (IBOO) who sometimes appear with BCO at special gala concerts.  Both Eddie and Christian are busy session recording the sessions and have each played on a multitude of movies.  Eddie even had an on-screen role in the Nick Cage film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin!


From a musical family with jazz and classical learnings Christian Garrick is musical director of BCO and his influences run far and wide.  He first discovered Hungarian and Romanian folk and gypsy music listening to Sandor Lakatos and Taraf du Haidouks.  Christian’s arrangements for BCO of Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky and Greig - the so called ‘squeezebox concertos’ - are rooted in BCO folklore.  His arrangements of traditional Gaelic tunes on the album The Gaelic Chronicles was met with critical acclaim with the likes of Cerys Matthews and Mark Radcliffe both championing the disc on their respective radio shows.  Christian is influenced by a range of fiddlers from Grappelli to Stuff Smith to Indian virtuosos L Shankar and L Subramaniam.  Nigel Kennedy, a sometimes collaborator with Christian on stage, described him as “one of my favourite violinists”.  Christian’s own unique hybrid playing style, sheer emotional passion and extraordinary improvisational abilities thrills audiences everywhere.

Soul Traders

Soul Traders

SOUL TRADERS


The Soul Traders story was begun by Den Hegarty in 1999 when he put a band together specifically to play at the grand opening of his local village hall.


Twenty-five years and many reincarnations later the twelve-piece band continues to work and thrive under the mentoring and leadership of Den Hegarty.


Celebrating upbeat Soul and Funk classics from the sixties and seventies, the band’s close four-part harmonies, fearless brass and ruthless back line make for a dance night to challenge your very best boots.


The thing that binds the Soul Traders together is our mutual love of music. We have a very diverse repertoire, showcasing the breadth of diversity within our ranks. At the core of our catalogue, some of the finest northern soul there is to be had (as hinted at in the name). Thrown in alongside, a touch of funk and just a tad of good ol' fashioned bebop, blues and rock 'n' roll.


You can expect a mixture of superbly executed piano riffs, a heaped helping of pumping bass licks, ear tinglingly grooving percussion, some smooth strumming of the ol' six string and some of the finest trumpet blowing and driving saxophones there is to be had. Weave into this supreme musical mix a cornucopia of the most supremely talented singers there is to be seen for miles around, tying a grand virtuosic bow around the package that is The Soul Traders.

Christine Collister

Christine Collister

CHRISTINE COLLISTER 


?..boundary breaking is routine for Collister and makes her one of the finest grown-up vocalists on the planet?? ? Q


Touring for the first time in four years, Christine will be performing songs from the

?Children of the Sea? project along with a selection of old favourites.


2024: Christine?s career now spans an incredible 40 years.  Over that bridge of time she has released 24 albums, a DVD celebrating 20 years in the business and an acclaimed single with the BBC: the theme tune for ?The Life and Loves of a She-Devil? in 1987.

Throughout, she has mesmerized and astounded with her unique blend of soul, blues, pop, jazz, country and folk, and today she remains as powerful, subtle, effortless and relevant as ever.


Collister grew up on the Isle of Man, and her professional recording career began after she moved to the UK in the mid 1980?s, when she came to national attention singing the theme for the BBC Television series The Life and Loves Of A She Devil. A period of great critical and commercial success when working with Clive Gregson was followed by a fruitful and enduring association with Richard Thompson.


Christine is a magical live performer, with her gravity defying voice, assured and impressive live performances and great personal charm has become a familiar and popular name on the ?live? scene including major international festivals from Glastonbury to Cambridge, Winnipeg to Port Fairey.


? ? a voice personally delivered by God.? The Times


?Christine Collister has a killer voice. As full as Dusty Springfield or as blue as Alison Moyet? ? Froots


To be released in 2024 - Children Of The Sea is a very special project of 9 original songs inspired by Manx Folklore and a magical sense of place. Part funded by the Isle Of Man Arts Council, Culture Vannin and Fledgling Records, The CD is accompanied by a beautiful book complete with lyrics, inspirations and stories with original illustrations by Manx artists. It promises to be Collister?s finest release and marks a turning point in her authentic artistic expression.


Christine has always enjoyed the collaborative process and has been an integral part of many and varied musical projects over the years. Her most recent collaboration with brilliant Australian guitarist Michael Fix has been a successful and delightful surprise for them both.  They released their second CD ?North&South? in October of 2019 with a sell out tour of the UK followed by an equally successful tour of the Australian Festival scene in 2020.


?Christine Collister?s singing was powerful and emotional, shifting effortlessly from soft and angelic to knock you out Janice Joplin style. Michael Fix?s guitar was equally superb. He provided tasteful support in the most charming way and would then explode into amazing virtuoso runs across the finger board, all impeccably tasteful and clean.?

? Troubadour (Woy Woy NSW) concert review, Michael Fine 


Christine?s natural warmth and intimate connection with audiences coupled with her stunning voice, make her concerts delightfully memorable events.

??one of the world?s finest..? ? Q


Christine also toured and recorded with the female super group Daphne?s

Flight. In 2017, 21 years after their first collaboration, they released a highly

acclaimed second album: "Knows Time, Knows Change" on Fled?gling Records.

Nostalgic Cinema: Ladies in Lavender (2004) (12A)

Nostalgic Cinema: Ladies in Lavender (2004)

Directed by Charles Dance

Starring Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Daniel Brühl

Duration 114 mins


Aging spinster sisters Ursula (Judi Dench) and Janet (Maggie Smith) discover a young man (Daniel Brühl) near death on the beach by their home in a small Cornish fishing village. Taking him in, they discover that he is Andrea, a violinist from Krakow, Poland, who had been swept off an ocean liner on which he was sailing to a fresh start in America. Although Ursula feels an unfamiliar spark of infatuation for the handsome young musician, propriety suggests the attraction must remain unspoken.



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.


All Nostalgic Cinema performances have subtitles to assist full enjoyment of the film by any members of the audience who are hard of hearing.


Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.


Tickets £5 - includes hot drink, biscuits and chat after the screening.

Ticket price includes £1 admin fee

Seats are not allocated for these showings.

The Military Wives Choir at Christmas

The Military Wives Choir at Christmas
The Lympstone Military Wives Choir at Christmas with the Ottery St Mary Silver Band  - Sponsored by Co-op Funeral Care Honiton.

Running Time: 2  to  2 & 1/2 hours

Paul Grainger from Co-op Funeral Care Honiton, is well known for his fundraising  Christmas Carol Concerts, and this year Paul  has gone bigger than ever before. Tonight's show will feature the fantastic Lympstone Military Wives choir and the Ottery St Mary Silver Band. This years beneficiaries are The Beehive (Supported by the Coop in 2023/24) & Barnardo's. Donations will also be made to tonight's choir and band.

Join us for a fabulous night of Christmas Songs and Festive Music, ending with much loved Christmas Carols for all to sing along to!

Lympstone Military Wives Choir
The Military Wives Choirs is a community of over 2000 women in 72 choirs across the UK and internationally. We come together to celebrate a love of singing and a communal understanding that comes from our members' shared experiences of the Armed Forces.   

We welcome all women whose lives are currently impacted by their military connection; our network supports each other and forms life-changing friendships that lead to new and uplifting experiences through singing. 

  Singing in a choir has been proven to increase wellbeing and improve mental and physical health. With no auditions and no pressure to perform, the Military Wives Choirs gives its members the opportunity to spend time with women that truly understand the challenges associated with military life.

Lympstone MWC was formed in 2011, one of the first choirs to come together after the Gareth Malone TV series. We currently have around 20 members and rehearse on Wednesdays 5.30-7.30 pm in the Gordon Messenger Centre, opposite CTCRM’s main gate. 

We welcome new members at any time.   Contact us at lympstone@militarywiveschoirs.org if you are interested in joining us or booking the choir for an event. 

Ottery St Mary Silver Band
The Ottery St Mary Silver Band was formed in 1920 after a decision was made to move away from the previous set up of a military style concert band including reed instruments as well as brass. This had been the case for many years leading up to the First World War.  Instead, the newly formed band used brass instruments only.  They initially called themselves the Town Band but like many bands in the South of England they later referred to themselves as a Silver Band rather than be likened to the colliery bands of the North.  

 Today's band has a mixture of brass and silver plated instruments  In 2023 the OSM Silver Band celebrated its centenary with a well attended and very successful concert at the Kings School in Ottery. This had originally been scheduled for 2020 but was cancelled due to COVID.  

Although the the traditional brass band contest is not something OSMSB gets involved in these days, it does nonetheless have a busy schedule of engagements during the year including spring and Christmas concert, fetes, church services and carol playing, to to mention the Honiton show and regular summer engagements at Connaught Gardens in Sidmouth.  

 We offer brass class training and main rehearsals are held between 7.30 and 9.30 every Thursday at Escot Village Hall.

Stuck at home and put to work by her spoiled Step-Sisters, Cinderella’s life is dreary and dull.

Everything changes when she helps a mysterious woman out...With a little bit of magic, she is

transported into an ethereal new world – one where fairies bring the gifts of the seasons, where

pumpkins turn into carriages, and where true love awaits.

Nostalgic Cinema; A Christmas Story (1983) (PG)

Nostalgic Cinema; A Christmas Story (1983)

Directed by Bob Clark

Starring Peter Billingsley, Zack Ward, Melinda Dillon

Duration 104 mins


Based on the humorous writings of author Jean Shepherd, this beloved holiday movie follows the wintry exploits of youngster Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley), who spends most of his time dodging a bully (Zack Ward) and dreaming of his ideal Christmas gift, a "Red Ryder air rifle." Frequently at odds with his cranky dad (Darren McGavin) but comforted by his doting mother (Melinda Dillon), Ralphie struggles to make it to Christmas Day with his glasses and his hopes intact.



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.


All Nostalgic Cinema performances have subtitles to assist full enjoyment of the film by any members of the audience who are hard of hearing.


Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.


Tickets £5 - includes hot drink, biscuits and chat after the screening.

Ticket price includes £1 admin fee

Four women: four curious love stories. Juan Diego Flórez leads a fantastic cast in Offenbach's dream-

like opera.


Through the haze of the years, a poet remembers the women he loved. But when it comes to

matters of the heart, nothing is as it seems. Particularly when the devil himself is involved…

Journeying back to his school days, Hoffmann relives his childhood romance with Olympia, a model

student in every sense. Doomed love follows him into adulthood, where the dancer, Antonia, is

taken from him too soon. Meanwhile, the sensual courtesan Giulietta has her own secret agenda. As

memory and fantasy becomes increasingly blurred, will Hoffmann find the enigmatic Stella before it is too late?

Classical ballet's most powerful tale of love, treachery and forgiveness. Bringing together

Tchaikovsky’s sensational score with the incredible imagination of choreographer Liam Scarlett and

designer John Macfarlane, Swan Lake on the big screen will be an exceptional way to experience this

ultimate ballet classic.


Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock 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. Von Rothbart, arbiter of Odette's curse, tricks the Prince

into declaring his love for the identical Odile and thus breaking his vow to Odette. Doomed to remain

a swan forever, Odette has but one way to break the sorcerer's spell.

The greatest love story ever told – through ballet. An ancient family feud casts a long shadow over

the town of Verona. In this hothouse of tension, brawls are quick to break out and both sides get

caught in the crossfire.


The Capulets and Montagues are sworn enemies. Yet it is love at first sight for Romeo Montague and

Juliet Capulet when they meet each other at the Capulet ball, into which Romeo has snuck. The two

fall in love and they profess their devotion to each other at Juliet’s balcony. They secretly get

married. The stakes are raised for the young couple when Romeo avenges the death of his friend

Mercutio who has been killed by Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin. For this, Romeo is exiled from Verona.

Meanwhile, Juliet’s parents are forcing her to marry another suitor. In order to be together, Romeo

and Juliet must risk it all.

George Gershwhin


Sensuous contemporary ballet meets the energy of musical theatre in four distinctive short works.

Fool’s Paradise, The Two of Us, Us, An American in Paris: four works showing the remarkable

choreographic range of The Royal Ballet's Artistic Associate, Christopher Wheeldon.


FOOL’S PARADISE

Luminescent and shimmering, Fool’s Paradise marked the first of Wheeldon’s many collaborations

with composer Joby Talbot. It was created in 2007 for Wheeldon’s own company, Morphoses, and

first performed in 2012 by The Royal Ballet.

THE TWO OF US

The wistful songs of Joni Mitchell set the scene for the UK premiere of The Two of Us, a duet of deep

intimacy and yearning. It was created in 2020 for the Fall for Dance Festival in New York, and had

American ballet dancers Sarah Mearns and David Hallberg in its original cast.

US (DUET)

Us is a tender duet danced by two men. It was created in 2017 for BalletBoyz and is set to Keaten

Henson’s music.

AN AMERICAN IN PARIS (BALLET)

The Royal Ballet celebrates Wheeldon’s extraordinary success in musical theatre by performing the

ballet scene from his Tony Award-winning musical An American in Paris. Set to Gershwin’s jazzy

melodies, the musical is inspired by the 1951 film of the same name starring Gene Kelly and Leslie

Caron. The musical went on to win four Tony awards. The full musical depicts a blossoming romance

between the American G.I. Jerry Mulligan and a French ballerina, Lise Dassin. The ballet excerpt was

Wheeldon’s take on one of the most memorable scenes from the film – an extended sequence in

which the two central characters dance through Paris.
