For the first time we are delighted to welcome to the Castle’s Mill Road meadow fields the Arundel Festival marquee events and the innovative hot air balloon spectacular. The backdrop of Arundel Castle yet again features as a dramatic setting for an evening of love songs in the Barons’ Hall and for Candlelight Opera’s rousing rendition of Donizetti’s popular comic opera, Don Pasquale. There will also be three evenings of Shakespeare in the setting of the Collector Earl’s Garden, performed by the GB Theatre Company. Again, we are indebted to the Arundel Festival Committee and its many supporters for all their hard work and dedication. This superb event is always thoroughly enjoyed by both the local community and visitors to Arundel who, year after year, are presented with an exciting array of music, art, sculpture and theatre, for which we are all so grateful.

Monday 22nd August - 12noon to 2pmn 57 Maltravers Street, Arundeln Tickets: £10n

The English Mail Coach JAMES McKAY reads Thomas de Quincey’s largely forgotten 1849 masterpiece, The English Mail Coach – an essay in a style de Quincey described as “impassioned prose”, with a symphonic structure (including a splendidly involved fugue section). Its three parts begin with de Quincey’s fascinating historical notes on the mail coach system of his youth, turning at the hair-raising description of a near fatal crash before taking off into a delirious fusion of dreams, opium visions and memories. A must for everyone who likes Coleridge’s Ryme of the Ancient Mariner – Coleridge and de Quincey were contemporaries and sometime friends, and had many interests and preoccupations in common – but finds it faintly unsatisfying. There will be an interval during which wine and a ‘sandwich’ will be served.

Romeo & Juliet The Most Excellent and Lamentable Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet Verona, a city torn apart by an endless struggle between two feuding families, is left seeking salvation. Amongst a brutality beyond memory, grows a love beyond existence. The play deals with love conquering hate. The two lovers are surrounded by an anger and aggression that has lost all reason. Juliet and Romeo’s love for one another proves stronger than this loathing. It is the catalyst for the laying down of arms, and leads both households towards a new era of tolerance. Castle grounds open: 5.30pm The Collector Earl’s Garden gates open: 6.30pm Performance starts: 7.30pm On the night: Adult - £27.50, Child (ages 5-15) £16.50, under 5’s Free

Twelfth Night – or What You Will Twelfth Night is a play about love, falling in love, people in love with the idea of love and how love can drive some to madness. The play is a celebration of the finer things of life tinged with the darkness of cruel laughter aimed at the pompous Malvolio. Let there be cakes and ale! "Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them". Castle grounds open: 5.30pm The Collector Earl’s Garden gates open: 6.30pm Performance starts: 7.30pm On the night: Adult - £27.50, Child (ages 5-15) £16.50, under 5’s Free

Romeo & Juliet The Collector Earl’s Garden The Collector Earl’s Garden at Arundel Castle provides a magnificent and idyllic setting for Shakespeare’s plays. The garden, an evocation of a Jacobean garden, is a light-hearted tribute to Thomas Howard, 14th Earl of Arundel (1585-1646), known as 'The Collector'. The grand centrepiece is the rock work 'mountain' planted with palms and rare ferns to represent another world, and supporting a green oak version of 'Oberon's Palace', a fantastic spectacle designed by Inigo Jones for Prince Henry's Masque on New Year's Day 1611. Castle grounds open: 5.30pm The Collector Earl’s Garden gates open: 6.30pm Performance starts: 7.30pm On the night: Adult - £27.50, Child (ages 5-15) £16.50, under 5’s Free

Other sponsors for 2011:

PROGRAMME

Now in its eleventh year, Drip Action’s innovative Theatre Trail goes from strength to strength and will once again deliver 8 new plays in 8 venues across the town on each of its 8 day run. Drip Action received nearly 120 entries this year from as far afield as America and Sweden. The standard of writing improves each year making the task of selecting the 7 plays to be performed alongside a new commission from Simon Brett increasingly difficult. Each play is about 30 minutes long and will be performed in venues across the town ranging from Arundel Football Club, the Norfolk Hotel Ballroom, the Victoria Institute and the St Nicholas Church, to a private kitchen and living room, offering audiences an intimate theatre experience.

2pm – The Victoria Instituten Moving On by Dian Donovan Kate, a wife and mother, disappears in what becomes a search for survival.

3pm – Ancient Lights, 19 River Roadn The Doctor Will See You Now by Andrew Turner Health problems frankly discussed. You have to laugh...

4pm – 57 Maltravers Streetn This Almost Joy by Barbara Lindsay. Professor Hart – Meadows poses a problem to his loved ones: he thinks the audience is real.

Stones in His Pockets by Marie Jones Our evening production of this 1996 play by Irish playwright Marie Jones will be directed by Dawn Smithers and will be performed by Stuart Smithers and David Stephens who, as Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, bring a cast of 15 to life. Ireland has a long history of being an extension of a Hollywood set - The Quiet Man and Ryan's Daughter to name but two, have all been filmed in Ireland using locals as extras and it is this that Marie Jones explores in this multi-layered comedy. Described by the Sunday Times as 'Sad, hilarious and irresistible' this play is a Festival treat.

Summer Evening in the Barons' Hall

Joanne Appleby and Andrew Rees will perform classics from opera, well known show songs and music from Puccini, Cole Porter, Mozart, Kurt Weill, Rodgers & Hammerstein.

Joanne Appleby, soprano, studied opera at the Royal Northern College of Music and then won a scholarship from the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company before embarking on an operatic career. She spent four years performing with the Glyndebourne Festival Opera and Touring Opera, as well as singing at venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Festival Hall. She was a member of the opera group Amici Forever for four years - visiting far flung corners of the world. Since then she has toured Australia, Dubai and New Zealand as a soloist with The Morriston Orpheus Male voice choir. Joanne is currently back at Glyndebourne in Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg, but is greatly looking forward to her first performance in the stately Barons’ Hall at Arundel Castle. Andrew Rees, the renowned Welsh tenor, began singing at a very early age, competing and winning Eisteddfods at National level both as a singer and a pianist. After graduating from the Royal Northern College of Music, he studied opera in London before joining the renowned English National Opera as a principal tenor. Andrew has performed as a soloist at all the major concert venues in London and across the UK as well as live broadcasts on radio and television many times. He has also entertained in such diverse venues as on board The QE2, various outdoor ‘Proms in the Park’, the prestigious Henley Festival and at private functions. Andrew has travelled widely with his operatic work and has taken lead roles in New Zealand, Germany, Switzerland, Portugal and across the UK. He too looks forward to his first performance in the Arundel Festival, performing alongside his wife, Joanne Appleby. Tickets: £25.00 includes admission to gardens from 5.30pm for picnics and a complimentary glass of wine in the interval.

Don Pasquale

Comic Opera sung in English. Fully costumed and specially staged for the concert platform with The Candlelight Orchestra.

Don Pasquale has his mind set on disinheriting his nephew Ernesto and getting himself some heirs of his own. Not only has Pasquale denied his nephew his inheritance, he has also denied him permission to marry his love Norina. So, as part of a plot, Norina gets together with Dr Maletesta and poses as the eligible wife to be, but before the ink is dry on the marriage documents, Norina begins to make Pasquale’s life utterly impossible until he is practically begging Ernesto to take her off his hands. Candlelight Opera specialise in producing special opera events inside some of the most beautiful historic houses and period venues in and around the UK. Each year, as part of the “Opera in the House” season, Candlelight organise a season of performances which include concerts and fully staged operas. Donizetti’s three-act masterpiece tells some eternal truths and has been called a story of love and laughter. The plots are thickly hatched – mostly at the expense of the wretched Don Pasquale who discovers, in true operatic style, that all is not what it seems. Tickets: £47.00 to include admission to the gardens from 5.30pm for picnics and a complimentary glass of wine during the interval.
