Monday 12 - Saturday 17 November DANIEL SCHUMANN AND BIRMINGHAM REPERTORY THEATRE PRESENT

Rebus: Long Shadows By Ian Rankin. Adapted by Rona Munro. The new Rebus story exclusively on stage. Detective Inspector John Rebus is retired but the shadows of his former life still follow him through the streets of Edinburgh. Whisky helped but now he’s denying himself that pleasure. But when the daughter of a murder victim appears outside his flat, he’s back on the case and off the wagon. Rebus will need help from his ex-colleagues but one of them is already looking for him. DI Siobhan Clarke was Rebus’ greatest ally on the force but is worried that his past actions may stop them finally convicting a dangerous killer. Soon Rebus is caught between two cases and can only turn to one person to help him - the man he spent his career trying to arrest. Ian Rankin’s Rebus novels have dominated the detective fiction market with the ensuing television series ensuring the detective’s legendary status. Now, alongside award-winning playwright Rona Munro, Ian Rankin is bringing his beloved creation to the stage for the very first time. Mon - Sat 7.30pm, Thu 2pm, Sat 2.30pm

Freshly Squeezed Productions

The Shelter

The Shelter is a multidisciplinary piece about real life on the streets of Aberdeen which combines live drawing and verbatim theatre. Sound and sight give different perspectives on the city’s bus shelters through a gradual accumulation of brush strokes and repeated snippets of ever-growing conversations. Watch a beautiful work of art evolve at the hands of multi-award-winning artist Kate Steenhauer, alongside a vibrant verbatim text performed by writer Shane Strachan. This is a work-in-progress sharing of The Shelter.

The Freshly Squeezed Productions team is proud to be creating and commissioning new work made in Aberdeen, championing up and coming talent and ideas, and working with artists across Scotland and beyond.

Half-Way Rock

6pm FREE (ticketed)

Half-Way Rock: a fusion of the immediacy of live stage performance with the intimacy of radio drama. Marcail sees the Half-Way Rock as nothing more than a resting place on the Aberdeenshire coast until the sounds of the waves, wind and rain one day appear to her as voices, calls for help, final words long lost among the depths.
But why her; why now? An answer comes only when she finds herself precariously perched thousands of feet above an abyss on the Half-Way Rock’s mirror-image on the other side of the North Sea: the Kjeragbolten.
This time, the phantom words come from the Draugr - spirits of those lost at sea, human forms with heads of seaweed, and suddenly the voices make sense. Half-Way Rock is a mixed-media play by Neil Cargill in collaboration with sound designer Simon James which intertwines voices, sounds and music to create a mesmerising narrative. Join us for this work in progress sharing and find out more about the real life stories associated with Scotland’s North-east coast that have inspired and informed Half-Way Rock.

Swan Lake

Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake returns with a fresh look for the 21st century. Retaining the iconic elements of the original production loved by millions around the world, Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (Set & Costumes) and Paule Constable (Lighting) will create an exciting reimagining of the classic production. Thrilling, audacious, witty and emotive, this Swan Lake is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corpsde-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered conventions, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm. Collecting over thirty international accolades including an Olivier Award in the UK and three Tonys on Broadway, Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.

Thursday 10 & Saturday 12 May SCOTTISH OPERA PRESENTS TCHAIKOVSKY’S

Eugene Onegin

New production Supported by The Alexander Gibson Circle and Scottish Opera’s ‘Play a Supporting Role’ Appeal Tchaikovsky and Pushkin: two of Russia’s greatest artists come together in this sweeping tale of unfulfilled love. A lovesick girl; a cocky young man who thoughtlessly spurns her; a heart-stopping duel between should-be friends. Pushkin’s epic romance is relocated to pre-revolutionary Russia, as an aged Tatyana looks back on the ghosts of her adolescence and the one great love of her life: the enigmatic Eugene Onegin. In this mesmerising new production, director Oliver Mears (Director of Opera, The Royal Opera) teams up with awardwinning designer Annemarie Woods and choreographer Ashley Page (former Artistic Director of Scottish Ballet) to set this hopelessly romantic opera in a world full of memories and dreams, where the past is ever present. Tchaikovsky’s soaring score, not heard on Scottish Opera’s main stage since 1993, is the most radiant of Russian lyric operas. Natalya Romaniw (Rusalka 2016), fast making a name for herself in the Russian repertoire, sings Tatyana. Samuel Dale Johnson (The Marriage of Figaro 2016) is Onegin. Scottish Opera Music Director Stuart Stratford conducts. Thu & Sat 7.15pm

Rigoletto

Award-winning director Matthew Richardson (The Devil Inside 2016) and Olivier Award-winning designer Jon Morrell revive their powerful production of Verdi’s masterpiece. Set in a dark and dangerous underworld where cruelty and inhumanity are rife – and women are objects merely to be played with and discarded – it tells the tragic tale of seduction, revenge and a father’s suffocating love for his only daughter with a clarity that is completely compelling and utterly heart‐breaking. From the aching naivety of Gilda’s first love to the dissolute revelry of ‘La donna e mobile’, Verdi’s score is packed with passion, colour and some of the best loved music in opera Internationally acclaimed baritone Aris Argiris heads up a cast of exciting talent including Lina Johnson, much praised for her Gilda in Trieste in 2016; award winning British tenor Adam Smith; David Shipley, a recent graduate of the prestigious Jette Parker Young Artist Programme; and Scottish Opera Emerging Artist Katie Coventry. British conductor Rumon Gamba conducts.

Thursday 30 May & Saturday 1 June 2019 SCOTTISH OPERA PRESENTS MOZART’S

The Magic Flute Sir Thomas Allen returns to Scottish Opera to revive his five star production of Mozart’s most inventive opera. Set in a spectacular world inspired by the Victorian futurism of HG Wells and Jules Verne, this enthralling Magic Flute perfectly balances the opera’s beguiling mix of comedy, fantasy and pantomime with a profound story of the search for wisdom, love and truth. A handsome prince, a damsel in distress, sorcerers, priests and a bumbling bird catcher – all are given life in Mozart’s sublime blend of lyrical love duets, folk-like ditties and the explosive coloratura of the Queen of the Night arias. The international cast includes Peter Gijsbertsen (La traviata 2017); Gemma Summerfield, First Prize winner at the 2015 Kathleen Ferrier Awards; name to watch Julia Sitkovetsky; and Richard Burkhard, who returns to Pamino, the laughout-loud role he created in 2012. Scottish Opera favourite Tobias Ringborg (The Marriage of Figaro 2016) conducts.

Søndergård Conducts Rachmaninov

‘Vengeance is mine; I will repay!’ And taking his cue from those thunderous words, Sergei Rachmaninov launches a First Symphony like no other. Dark, stormy and burning with unrequited passion, it’s heady stuff, and a gripping contrast to Grieg’s much-loved Peer Gynt. The RSNO’s new Music Director Thomas Søndergård is reunited on stage with Scottish mezzo Catriona Morison – fresh from her triumph in 2017’s Cardiff Singer of the World – in Ravel’s exquisite Shéhérazade. 3pm

Paul Chowdhry

The British Comedy Award nominee and star of Live At The Apollo and 8 Out Of 10 Cats is embarking on a nationwide tour to complain about the state of the world and offer no solutions. Since his last show he has become a husband and father, seen the UK vote to leave the EU and watched the rise of Donald Trump, all of which leaves him asking one question, why does it seem that no one else alive can correctly load a dishwasher? Come and see what Jon Richardson can do with words when he has more than thirty seconds to work with. Or should that be “with which to work”?

Following phenomenal demand and instant sell-outs across the country, comedy powerhouse and star of Taskmaster, Live at The Apollo and Stand Up for the Week, Paul Chowdhry has announced extra dates in spring 2018. “It’s a rare and joyous thing to see a stand up so vibrant and imperiously on top of his game” The Mail on Sunday Book now to avoid disappointment, innit.

As seen on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, QI and The Royal Variety Performance. “A man who makes funny seem easy” Guardian “ If you want to bet on the next mainstream stand‐up star put your shirt on Joe Lycett” Evening Standard “Effortlessly funny” Time Out

He’s back! It’s been a busy few years for Jason since his last smash-hit stand up show but fans of his Absolute Radio show will know this nationally acclaimed comedian hasn’t changed a bit. Muddle Class promises to feature a wealth of new material about Jason growing up ‘working class’ then finding, over the years, that part of him has become ‘middle class’ causing much confusion! Delivered with Jason’s amiable charm and captivating wit, this is a show not to be missed.
