Everyman

National Theatre Live

Everyman

BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre’s new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road).

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.

One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

Full £15.00    Concession £15.00    Supporter £12.00

These Reigning Days

These Reigning Days

A Standing Gig

Often described as anthemic, epic stadium rock, These Reigning Days music fuses layers of strong but understated guitar lines with a twisting, indie-pop synth sound. The 3-piece from South Devon have songs which are memorable, danceable and instantly accessible. Dan Steer produces powerful and unique vocals, there’s pulsing rhythm from drummer Joe Sansome, all held together by the formidable bass of Jonny Finnis.

Plus support: The Alex Gregory Band

Alex Gregory Band

Exeter’s Alex Gregory has been likened to both KT Tunstall and Beth Orton, and described as an ‘awesome songwriter with the voice of a slightly naughty angel’. The Alex Gregory Band formed in 2015 to back this incredible songstress. ‘...primed for altitudes way beyond the reach of a West London Restaurant...’ - Q Magazine

Live From Glyndebourne's 2015 Festival

Mozart's Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail

The Abduction From the Seraglio

World class opera live via satellite from Glyndebourne! Mozart’s take on the glittering Orient: a stirring tale of abduction, escape and forgiveness. Both a popular comedy and a compassionate Enlightenment drama, Entführung tells the story of one man’s attempt to rescue his beloved from the harem of a Turkish despot and his fall to the mercy of his nemesis. The opera’s East/West clash and its surprising resolution defies all stereotypes and strikes a startlingly contemporary chord. Directed by Glyndebourne favourite David McVicar (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, Giulio Cesare) and conducted by Music Director Robin Ticciati, this new production features a stellar cast including Sally Matthews as Konstanze, Edgaras Montvidas as Belmonte, Tobias Kehrer as Osmin and Mari Eriksmoen as Blonde.

Iolanthe

Share Share this!

Illyria present

Iolanthe

by Gilbert & Sullivan

In 2011 Illyria raised the bar for the major UK open-air touring theatre companies by becoming the first and only one to add Opera to its regular season. Gilbert and Sullivan's most magical comic opera is about Iolanthe, a fairy, who falls in love with a mortal. Many believe its sumptuous harmonies to be the most beautiful Sullivan wrote. It gets the complete Illyria treatment, faithfully performed by a reduced cast and accompanied by a Musical Director on keyboard. Despite the reduction in scale not a single word from WS Gilbert's libretto is cut, nor a single note or harmony from Sir Arthur Sullivan's score unsung. Following the runaway popularity of HMS Pinafore, The Mikado and The Pirates of Penzance, Illyria returns with another romantic summer opera to leave you with a song in your heart.

Running time (approx): 2hrs (including 20 minute interval) Suitable for: all ages 5+

The Merchant of Venice

RSC Live

The Merchant of Venice

In the melting pot of Venice, trade is God. With its ships plying the globe, the city opens its arms to all, as long as they come prepared to do business and there is profit to be made. With the gold flowing all is well, but when a contract between Bassanio and Shylock is broken, simmering racial tensions boil over. A wronged father, and despised outsider, Shylock looks to exact the ultimate price for a deal sealed in blood. Polly Findlay (Arden of Faversham 2014) directs Shakespeare's uncompromising tragedy.
