TREADING THE BOARDS IN 2017 2016 has seen some incredible dramas and some exceptional characters playing on our world stage as well as here at the Opera House. The necessity for cultural expression has never been so poignant in this ‘era of change’ so we are pleased to bring a rich and diverse performance programme to the Island. A good laugh is a great health kick, so resolve to book tickets for stand-up comedy with Jasper Carrott & Alistair McGowan, Patrick Monohan and Omid Djalili. Our catalogue of screenings for this season includes – The Tempest − broadcast live from the RSC and the first instalment of their Rome Season with Julius Caesar. From NT Live we see classic revivals − Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus, Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan, a new version of Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler by Patrick Marber and Shakespearean comedy with Twelfth Night. The Met’s annual Live in HD season continues − Verdi’s Nabucco and La Traviata, Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, Dvořák’s Rusalka, Mozart’s Idomeneo and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. 2

The much-esteemed Moscow City Ballet troupe bring us Romeo & Juliet, set to Prokofiev’s dramatic score and Swan Lake – one of Tchaikovsky’s big-story ballets and the essence of Russian culture. Both will be performed with a full live orchestra and cannot fail to elevate the spirit. As the sun starts to emerge again it’s time for some rock ‘n’ roll with the established, 25 year-running hit show Buddy Holly & The Cricketers, starring some of the West End’s finest actor-musicians. Jazz giant Courtney Pine joins us for a night alongside Omar – we all need some soul in our lives and these two hugely talented musicians will be creating some truly original sounds. Female vocalist Katie Markham will continue the soulful vibe with The Adele Songbook. And Ruby Wax will be hosting a forum for discussion following the success of her best-selling new book ‘A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled’ −an important look at mental health, as well as being funny, insightful and thought-provoking.


IN THE STUDIO We have seen original new work with our first in-house production of ‘FOG!’− a comedy co-written by local writers Tessa Coleman and Andrea Earl, which received a great response from our audiences and the Press.

hit Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan and Johnny Donahoe and The Virginia Monologues, an improvised show taking its inspiration from Virginia Woolf’s essay ‘A Room of One’s Own’.

Local author Erren Michaels launched her new book Jersey Ghost Stories and we enjoyed a spooky evening of readings from these reworked, macabre legends. There will be another opportunity to join Erren this February.

The children’s drama classes continue to thrive with performances for parents at the end of every term. Please do keep an eye out for available spaces on @JerseyOperaHouse Facebook page and on the website.

RSC: LIVE

THE TEMPEST LIVE SCREENING

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. In a unique partnership with Intel, the production will be using today’s most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s magical play, creating an unforgettable theatrical experience. rsc.org.uk

Multi-instrumentalist Courtney Pine CBE is a British-born jazz giant. In the eighties he was one of the first black British artists to make a serious mark on the jazz scene. Pine has had numerous BBC Jazz Awards, MOBOs, a Mercury Music Prize nomination and remained at the forefront of UK jazz with a contemporary style that integrates modern British sounds like drum ‘n’ bass and UK garage, alongside soul, hip-hop and deeprooted influences from across the Caribbean. For his latest project, Pine returns to the tenor saxophone for the first time in a decade and features the vocal talents of UK soul star Omar, whose 1992 hit single ‘There’s Nothing Like This’ established an instantly recognisable ‘signature’ sound that has since earned him widespread critical acclaim and seen him collaborate with

JULIUS CAESAR ENCORE SCREENING

Angus Jackson directs Shakespeare’s epic political tragedy, as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control. Caesar returns from war, allconquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power. The Rome season in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre opens with the politics of spin and betrayal turning to violence. Following his sell-out productions of Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer (2014) and James Fenton’s adaptation of Don Quixote (2016), Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action. 36

THE AUSTRALIAN BALLET’S FAIRY TALE SERIES

COPPÉLIA ENCORE SCREENING

Coppélia has everything a good ballet should – a touch of enchantment, a dash of romance and masses of sumptuous costumes. Swanilda and her merry boyfriend Franz live in a village with Dr. Coppelius, a sinister magician and inventor who has created a beautiful doll that he sits on his balcony. One day Franz sees the doll, Coppélia, and becomes infatuated with her. Swanilda and her friends decide to sneak into Coppelius’s house while he is out to find out more about this mysterious woman, but he returns suddenly. At the same time, the lovestruck Franz finds a ladder and also enters the house, hoping to meet the object of his desire. 38

Coppelius has had a plan all along to animate his doll by stealing Franz’s life-force, so when he manages to drug Franz, and he passes out, Swanilda pretends to be the doll and Coppelius is delighted. The funniest, sunniest ballet you will see all year! cinemalive.com
