People’s Stories / Straeon Pobl This Spring and Summer we’re presenting our People’s Stories season. We’ve chosen a range of work that looks at and celebrates many different personal stories – from the large-scale play Pink Mist about the stories of young men and their families returning from Afghanistan, and the studio show from Paine’s Plough Every Brilliant Thing, a surprisingly upbeat show about families and depression - a huge hit at the Edinburgh Festival, to George Monbiot’s evening of songs and discussion about being lonely. Alongside this there’s the major exhibition Stitched Voices showing textiles produced through conflict and for peace, and Yma o Hyd – photographs and words about the people and place of Borth. In the Cinema the WOW Film Festival showcases stories of personal resistance across the world. From the lives of those overcoming conflict to heart-warming stories of everyday life there’s plenty in People’s Stories to make us think, laugh and cry. All events in the People’s Stories season are listed with page numbers for further details and accompanying talks, or see our website for details. ___ Yn ystod y Gwanwyn a’r Haf eleni ‘rydym yn cyflwyno ein tymor Straeon Pobl. ‘Rydym wedi dewis amrediad o waith sy’n ystyried ac yn dathlu llawer o wahanol straeon personol - yn cynnwys y ddrama gynhwysfawr Pink Mist am straeon dynion ifanc a’u teuluoedd yn dychwelyd o Afghanistan; y sioe stiwdio gan gwmni Paine’s Plough Every Brilliant Thing, sy’n sioe annisgwyl o galonogol am deuluoedd ac iselder, a gafodd dderbyniad brwd iawn yng Ngŵyl Caeredin - a noson George Monbiot yn cyflwyno caneuon a thrafodaeth ynglyn â bod yn unig. Ynghyd â’r sioeau hyn ceir yr arddangosfa sylweddol Stitched Voices yn arddangos tecstiliau a gynhyrchwyd trwy wrthdaro ar gyfer heddwch, ac Yma o Hyd – ffotograffau a geiriau am bobl a thref y Borth. Yn y Sinema mae Gŵyl Ffilmiau Cymru a’r Byd yn Un (WOW) yn cyflwyno straeon am wrthsafiad personol ledled y byd. Yn amrywio o fywydau’r sawl sy’n goresgyn gwrthdaro i straeon calonogol am fywyd bob dydd, mae ‘na ddigon yn Straeon Pobl i wneud i ni feddwl, chwerthin a chrio.

NY MET Live

RSC Live

Nabucco

The Tempest

Wardens Theatre Company

The legendary Plácido Domingo brings another new baritone role to the Met under the baton of his longtime collaborator James Levine. Liudmyla Monastyrska is Abigaille, the warrior woman determined to rule empires, and Jamie Barton is the heroic Fenena. Dmitri Belosselskiy is the stentorian voice of the oppressed Hebrew people.

Simon Russell Beale returns to the RSC after 20 years to play Prospero in this groundbreaking production directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran. On a distant island a man waits. Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.

Jack and the Beanstalk Join the Wardens for their annual traditional panto – last year was a complete sell-out so early booking strongly recommended! Great entertainment and lots of fun for all ages. This year join the Wardens team as they present ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, but watch out for the giant! ___ Ymunwch â’r Wardens ar gyfer eu panto traddodiadol blynyddol – bu pob sioe yn gwerthu allan y llynedd felly fe’ch cynghorir yn gryf i archebu’n gynnar!

Harvesters

Roméo et Juliette

Old Time and Good Time songs and tunes, coupled with dynamic dancing. With authentic Appalachian sounds intimately intertwined with redhot instrumental integrity. Blending the strong rhythms of Mountain Music with Blues, Bluegrass is a must hear experience. The soundscape changes effortlessly as Guitars and Banjos combine with Dobro, Slide Steel Guitar, Fiddle, Mandolin, Octave Mandola and Concertina. Their easy rapport with audiences of all musical persuasions puts The Harvesters in a class of their own and promises a memorable performance. ___

When Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo starred opposite each other in Manon at the Met in 2015, the New York Times said, “the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Damrau and Grigolo are on stage together.” Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers, in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation. The production, by director Bartlett Sher, has already won acclaim for its vivid 18th-century milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the sumptuous score.

Mike Bubbins: Solid Gold

Swan Lake

The Flaky Tarts

At moonlight on the banks of a mysterious lake, Prince Siegfried meets the bewitched swanwoman Odette. Completely spellbound by her beauty, he swears his faithfulness to her. However, the Prince realizes too late that Fate has another plan for him…. A ballet of ultimate beauty and a Tchaikovsky’s score of unparalleled perfection was born at the Bolshoi in 1877. Classical ballet at its finest.

The Flaky Tarts are a very impressive acoustic trio, playing various styles of guitars to make their unique sound of close harmonies and exciting musical sounds. They perform Folk through to Country and Rock. Self penned material is mixed with sing along classics which makes for compulsory foot tapping. Humour through quips and observations compliment the well played music, so be prepared for laughter. You can look forward to a very entertaining evening from these three experienced entertainers. Local folk group, Brenig, provide support. ___

Mike Bubbins, “one of Wales’ finest comedians” (Wales Online) heads out on tour for the first time with an unmissable 90 minute crowd-pleasing compilation of his best bits so far.

George Monbiot & Ewan McLennan

About a year ago, author and journalist George Monbiot wrote an article for The Guardian on the personal and social effects of loneliness that quickly went viral. His first inclination, to write a book on the subject, soon gave way to the idea that the topic might be better conveyed through song. With this in mind he approached folk singer and songwriter Ewan McLennan and suggested a collaboration. Ewan will sing ‘a cappella’ with guitar and banjo, which will be interspersed with George’s depiction of the human stories behind the songs. Expect a unique and one-off interplay of songs and stories. Part of the People’s Stories Season.

(F.E.A.R.)

Hedda Gabler

Conductor / Arweinydd: Jonathan Lyness Director / Cyfarwyddwr: Richard Studer

Written and Performed by Gareth Clark, (F.E.A.R.) is a one-man show about constructed fear that asks directly if the world wants us to feel safe. (F.E.A.R.) is a brave, revealing and at times hilarious one-man tour of early child hood memories to midlife identity crisis delivered in an intimate manner. In this life story, that encapsulates early childhood memories and public information films, a clear and ever more fevered narrative unearths the fears of a middle aged man plagued with the news of Islamic State attacks, the revelations of Edward Snowden, Brexit and of a growing concern for the signs of physical decay.

“I’ve no talent for life.” Just married. Bored already. Hedda longs to be free... Hedda and Tesman have just returned from their honeymoon and the relationship is already in trouble. Trapped but determined, Hedda tries to control those around her, only to see her own world unravel. Tony Award-winning director Ivo van Hove returns to National Theatre Live screens with a modern production of Ibsen’s masterpiece starring Ruth Wilson.

Mozart’s fantastical opera, with its glorious mix of myth, ritual and pantomime, tells its tale of magic, power and love with music as enchanting and spectacular as the plot is mysterious. A true testament to Mozart’s genius, The Magic Flute is packed with some of the composer’s most imaginative and recognisable music, from heartfelt duets and comic exchanges to one of opera’s most formidable and memorable arias, that of The Queen of the Night. Sung in English by a stella cast of young professionals and accompanied by MWO’s own brilliant orchestra. ___ Mae opera ryfeddol Mozart, gyda’I chyfuniad godidog o chwedl, defod a phantomeim, yn dweud hanes hud, pŵer a chariad drwy gerddoriaeth sydd mor swynol a syfrdanol â rhyfeddod y plot. Yn The Magic Flute, sy’n brawf pendant o athrylith Mozart, y clywir cerddoriaeth fwyaf adnabyddus y cyfansoddwr.

Martyn Wyndham-Read has been involved with folk music for fifty years. He headed off to Melbourne and became part of the folk song revival there and throughout Australia during the early 1960’s. Back to England in 1967 Martyn was asked by Bert Lloyd to be part of the album ‘Leviathan’ with Martin Carthy, Dave Swarbrick and Trevor. With his golden voice and stunning accompaniment from Iris Bishop this is a very rare chance to see the ‘Master’ at work and is must see/hear concert.

Hollow Log

The Trials of Oscar Wilde Merlin Holland and John O’ Connor Thursday 14 February 1895 was the triumphant opening night of The Importance of Being Earnest and the zenith of Oscar Wilde’s career. Less than 100 days later he found himself a common prisoner and bankrupt, sentenced to two years hard labour. But what happened during the trials and what did Wilde say? Was he harshly treated or the author of his own downfall? Using the actual words spoken in court, we can feel what it was like to be in the company of a flawed genius – as this less than ideal husband was tragically reduced to a man of no importance. Suitable for ages 14+.

In his new production, Robert Carsen, the director behind the Met’s recent Falstaff, places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score. Live screening. 5hrs approx.

April – May / Ebrill – Mai

Wales Festival of Architecture 2017 Gwˆ yl Bensaernïaeth Cymru 2017 The Wales Festival of Architecture returns in April and May, with Aberystwyth Arts Centre once again the main hub of activity, hosting a programme of talks, films and exhibitions exploring the positive impact that good architecture has on people’s experience. The main Festival exhibition features the work of photographer James Morris and poet Elis Dafydd, who were invited to respond to awardwinning buildings in Wales on the theme of ‘For the People’, at the 2016 National Eisteddfod. To coincide with Visit Wales’s 2017 Year of Legends cultural programme, the Festival includes a discussion about the legends of Wales’s rich built heritage and landscape, as well as an update on a competition to design a ‘pop-up’ mobile hotel – using Welsh materials to create unique glamping units. With satellite events across Wales, we hope the 2017 Festival of Architecture will have something of interest for everyone who cares about the places and spaces around us.

Mae Gŵyl Bensaernïaeth Cymru yn dychwelyd ym mis Ebrill a Mai, gyda Chanolfan y Celfyddydau Aberystwyth unwaith eto wrth wraidd y gweithgareddau, yn cynnal rhaglen o anerchiadau, ffilmiau ac arddangosfeydd yn ystyried yr effaith bositif y mae pensaernïaeth dda yn cael ar brofiad pobl. Mae prif arddangosfa’r Ŵyl yn nodweddu gwaith y ffotograffydd James Morris a’r bardd Elis Dafydd, a gafodd eu gwahodd i ymateb i adeiladau arobryn yng Nghymru ar y thema ‘Ar gyfer y Bobl’, yn Eisteddfod Genedlaethol 2016. I gydfynd â rhaglen ddiwylliannol Blwyddyn Chwedlau ‘Ymweld â Chymru’ 2017, mae’r Ŵyl yn cynnwys trafodaeth ynglyn â chwedlau treftadaeth a thirwedd adeiledig cyfoethog Cymru, yn ogystal â diweddariad ar gystadleuaeth i ddylunio gwesty symudol sydyn - gan ddefnyddio deunyddiau Cymreig i greu unedau ‘glampio’ unigryw. Gyda gweithgareddau cysylltiedig ledled Cymru, gobeithiwn y bydd gan Ŵyl Bensaernïaeth 2017 rywbeth at ddant pawb sy’n ymddiddori yn y llefydd a’r gofod o’n cwmpas.

Dave Ball: Searching for the Welsh Landscape Searching for the Welsh Landscape is a body of new work by Dave Ball exploring the (questionable) notion that national identity subsists in the landscape. Based on a survey of five distinct hilly regions in Wales, the exhibition exhaustively attempts to address the question of whether there is such a thing as a perfect, archetypal Welsh mountain. ___ Corff o waith newydd gan Dave Ball yw Searching for the Welsh Landscape sy’n ystyried y cwestiwn (dadleuol) bod hunaniaeth genedlaethol yn bodoli yn y dirwedd. Yn seiliedig ar arolwg o bump o ranbarthau bryniog penodol yng Nghymru, mae’r arddangosfa yn ceisio ystyried yn drylwyr y cwestiwn a oes y math beth â mynydd Cymreig archdeipaidd, perffaith.

Edgelands Edgelands takes its inspiration from the overlooked areas of land on the borders between the town and the countryside; often the outskirts of cities that hardly receive our attention. This collection of contemporary painting celebrates these forgotten margins of our landscape and considers how we perceive the world, not just in terms of what we see, but also how we feel and behave as a developing civilisation.

Ysbrydolir Edgelands gan y darnau o dir a esgeulusir ar yr ymylon rhwng trefi a chefn gwlad; yn aml cyrion dinasoedd nad ydym yn talu unrhyw sylw iddynt. Mae’r casgliad hwn o baentiadau cyfoes yn dathlu’r ymylon anghofiedig hyn o’n tirwedd ac yn ystyried sut yr ydym yn sylwi ar y byd, nid yn unig mewn termau yr hyn yr ydym yn gweld, ond hefyd sut yr ydym yn teimlo ac yn ymddwyn fel gwareiddiad sy’n datblygu.

UK Music is the trade body for the music industry and members are: AIM, BASCA, BPI, FAC, MMF, MPA, MPG, MU, PPL, PRS for Music and the Live Music Group. Further information can be found at: http://www.ukmusic.org/ and for more information on the Rehearsal Space scheme or UK Music’s other work please contact oliver.morris@ukmusic. org

Hynt is a national scheme that works with theatres and arts centres across Wales to make things clear and consistent. Hynt cardholders are entitled to a ticket free of charge for a personal assistant or carer at the Arts Centre and all the theatres and arts centres participating in the scheme. Visit www.hynt.co.uk or www.hynt.cym to find a range of information and guidance about the scheme. You can also find out whether you or the person you care for are eligible to join the scheme and complete an application form.
