Production Rudolf Nureyev

Orchestra of the Royal Opera House
From The Royal Ballet’s classical origins in the works of Marius Petipa, to the home-grown choreographers who put British ballet on the world stage, this mixed programme highlights the versatility of the Company. Petipa’s Raymonda Act III is Russian classical ballet summarized in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique, while Ashton’s Enigma Variations is quintessentially British in every way – from its score by Elgar and period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, to Ashton’s signature style, the essence of British ballet. Concerto, MacMillan’s fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completes a programme that shows the breadth of The Royal Ballet’s heritage.

Celebrity Life Stories and O'Sullivan Events once again have the privilege to present:
Ladies and Gentleman,
Listening to Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ incredible stories leaves you dumbfounded and in a state of disbelief.
From his self-deprecating tales of academic failure, through his time in the Forces, to discovering lost Middle Eastern cities and of course, his many and varied expeditions, it’s amazing how much one man has crammed into his life
Following a host of sell out shows at the Ramside Hall Hotel ( twice ), in Durham, the Grand Connaught Rooms, in London then more intimate night’s at Bingley arts centre and the Victoria Hall Keighley the audiences were captivated by the stories and left open-mouthed at the challenges faced and conquered by Sir Ran, his first wife Ginny and countless colleagues like Dr Mike Stroud, who have faced every challenge with him.
Three things stand out firstly from the big screen video entrance the 50 minute description of his life and the audience question and answer sessions that follow. He is not one to boast, he does not suffer fools gladly and he has a very dry but funny sense of humour. It is not for the faint hearted either, with a couple of pictures of hands and feet that had been subjected to extreme cold and the ravaged faces exposed to pure Ozone.
Among the many physical problems Sir Ran describes, including heart-attacks and diabetes, one is very evident. Frostbite cost the explorer the fingers on his left hand and such was the pain during his wait to have them operated on in the UK (you have to wait five months on medical grounds) his description of literally taking matters into his own hands with his wife Ginny was as a bleak and matter-of-fact as any story you’ll ever hear.
It is a privilege to be in such an incredible man’s company. He is undoubtedly a Great Briton and the World’s Greatest Living Explorer. Sir Ranulph Fiennes is super human and a super human too.
If his story were not true you would not believe it and if you have not seen him live then this event is an absolute must.
When the night has finished Sir Ran will host a book signing where guests can purchase any of his books and have them personally signed and dedicated by the man himself.VIP Tickets – ONLY 24 AVAILABLE
We are able to offer just 24 tickets to meet Sir Ranulph for an exclusive intimate pre-show reception with drinks and canapes.
This opportunity is VERY RARE and offers ticket holders a once in a lifetime chance to be up close and personal with one of the worlds most interesting, dynamic and revered men.
Added to this every VIP ticket holder will have a photo with Sir Ranulph taken by our professional photographer which we will print for them to take home AND to add even more to this great value ticket, we will give every ticket holder a FREE commemorative frame for them to place their photograph in. This ensures that the memory of meeting the worlds greatest living explorer is captured perfectly forever!

“It was the 24th June 2016 and I found myself in a supermarket contemplating a meal deal. I only wanted a sandwich and I only needed a sandwich but given that I could get a snack and a drink for only 5p more it seemed financially irresponsible not to. It was the day after the Referendum, and I’d spent so long confused about what was happening to my country that I was in a rush as I took my three items to the lad on the till. He scanned the first two items no problem but the third item he couldn’t get to scan at all. I thought this is going to be a nightmare – there was a queue building up and he looked like he was going to call the supervisor. Then to his credit, he tried to scan it one more time, it wouldn’t scan – so he went ‘bip’ himself and chucked it through. And it was at that moment I thought ‘oh we’ll be alright as a country we will’.
And we will be alright. Trust me. I’m not a politician.”

“If Flanders & Swann and Flight of the Conchords and Garfunkel & Oates had a six-way time-travelling gang-bang that somehow mixed all their DNA, the offspring might end up sounding something like Flo and Joan.” Steve Bennett, Chortle

Beethoven’s only opera is a masterpiece, an uplifting story of risk and triumph. In this new production, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Jonas Kaufmann plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen his wife Leonore (disguised as ‘Fidelio’) who daringly sets out to rescue him. Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime. The music is transcendent throughout and includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners’ Chorus and Florestan’s impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope. Tobias Kratzer’s new staging brings together the dark reality of the French Revolutionary ‘Terror’ and our own time to illuminate Fidelio’s inspiring message of shared humanity.

Simon Evans: The Work of the Devil
Simon Evans’ last show, Genius 2.0 (***** “A Masterclass” The Scotsman) provided an hilarious analysis of the departure of any visible sign of intelligence from modern life. But his new show raises the stakes, with his usual excoriating views of a world on fire given a perspective shift from personal revelations that turned his world upside down this year.
“A gripping and, ultimately heart-warming tale… rich with Evans' wit and caustic observation.” (**** The Scotsman)
“You expect a high standard of stand-up from this veteran performer. But in sharing something so deeply personal, he’s exceeded what seemed to be his full potential… I’d expect it to get even better when it goes out on tour. Outstanding stuff.” ( **** ½ Chortle)
Simon Evans is the star of Live at the Apollo, Mock The Week, BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth & Simon Evans Goes To Market. Simon has made appearances on This Week, Question Time, Celebrity Mastermind, Pointless Celebrities and Mastermind The Professionals.

Dante’s Divine Comedy is an epic journey through the afterlife: it encompasses the horrifying drama of Inferno and its damned, the lyrical mysticism of pilgrims on mount Purgatorio and the dazzling spheres of Paradiso with their endless configurations of light. The poem was inspired by the agony of Dante’s own exile, and traces his path from crisis to revelation guided by his literary hero Virgil and his lost love Beatrice. In this new work, The Royal Ballet’s trailblazing Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor collaborates with an award-winning team – contemporary composer Thomas Adès, artist Tacita Dean, lighting designer Lucy Carter and dramaturg Uzma Hameed – to bring us closer to Dante and his extraordinary vision.

Strauss’s thrilling and audacious adaptation of Greek tragedy receives a new staging by the award-winning director Christof Loy. This uncompromising opera, about a daughter intent on bloody revenge and a mother driven to madness, has provoked critics to lively debate and both shocked and excited audiences since its 1909 premiere. Antonio Pappano conducts music that combines violence with moments of exquisite tenderness in his first Strauss interpretation for The Royal Opera since 2002. The outstanding cast includes Nina Stemme (Brünnhilde in last Season’s Der Ring des Nibelungen) in the title role, and Karita Mattila in her role debut as the haunted queen Klytämnestra.
“An excellent show, really capturing the essence of the Quo I played with for 13 odd years – the attention to detail was awesome!” MATT LETLEY - Status Quo drummer 2000-2013
Rockin’ All Over The World - Whatever You Want – Down Down – Living On An Island – In The Army Now - What You’re Proposing – Burning Bridges… just a few of the many hits spreading five decades of Status Quo’s incredible music history.
‘The Quo Experience' is an East Anglian based band including David Wood as ‘Francis Rossi’ and Dave Crawte as ‘Rick Parfitt’; both have spent years studying every detail of Rossi and Parfitt's looks, playing styles and stage performances to make sure they are both as close to the real thing on stage as is possible, without actually being the legendary rock duo themselves! The magic and chemistry that the Parfitt/Rossi partnership brought to a Quo 'live' performance is now being continued within The Quo Experience.
However, The Quo Experience is not all about Rick and Francis; it also features Graham Partridge, who captures the magic of Status Quo’s long-term keyboard player Andy Bown's playing and vocals perfectly; Leon Smith, an excellent Matt Letley/Leon Cave style drummer and Del Fletcher, a very talented bassist and performer.
With such an impressive line-up of seriously experienced musicians and passionate Quo fans, along with a stage show that includes the legendary Status Quo wall of white Marshalls and replica guitars, The Quo Experience is fully armed to take the act as far as is possibly achievable in the tribute band industry. The Quo Experience is, however, not just another Quo tribute band - it is an 'experience'; an ongoing chance to 'experience' the sounds and looks of "Britain's biggest singles chart band of all time" as we all remember it!
