Crash Bang Wallop are back with a classic musical, Fiddler on the Roof!
The story revolves around Tevye, the dairyman, and his family, who live in the village of Anatevka, a small Jewish settlement in Russia. Life in Anatevka is hard, but is sustained and shaped by the traditions of the Jewish way of life. Some of these are under threat from modern ways, such as the role of Yenta, the matchmaker, and Tevye has to eventually accept his three daughters choosing their own husbands.
This is a well-written musical, with moving ballads, lively high energy company numbers and a good sprinkling of humour. The storyline is centuries old and shared by many communities and is still current today.

As host of Unspun on Dave and his own Political Party podcast, Matt has interviewed some of British politics’ biggest and most notorious characters including Tony Blair, David Davis, Ruth Davidson, Nigel Farage, Nick Clegg, Anna Soubry, Harriet Harman, Ed Balls and Jacob Rees-Mogg.
His monthly residence at Westminster’s The Other Palace has sold out every show for over 5 years and sells out months in advance.

“Is there a better political comic than Matt Forde currently working in the UK? I can't think of another to touch him”
“a stand-up of rare skill” ★★★★ The Sunday Times

LIVE STREAMED PERFORMANCE
Richard Eyre's beautiful production provides the perfect setting for Verdi's opera about a courtesan who sacrifices all for love.
From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heartbreaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La Traviata is one of the
most popular of all operas. Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the
surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending.
The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing.
Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.
