The Royal Ballet live from The Royal Opera House

Choreography Carlos Acosta after Marius Petipa

Music Ludwig Minkus arranged and orchestrated by Martin Yates

Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the bumbling knight Don Quixote and his faithful squire Sancho Panza.  At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri.  Carlos Acosta’s vibrant staging brings together the whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers.  Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea is sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

Approximate running time: 2 hours 40 minutes, including one interval

THE FAVOURITE - Regal Film Society

Tuesday, 26th February 2019 - 7:30pm

TICKETS: £5.00, Film Society Members £3.00

A PUBLIC FILM SCREENING (Cert 15)

Dir Yorgos Lanthimos      Ireleand/UK/USA 2019        119 mins

This year’s must-see award-winning film The Favourite is set in the early 18thcentury in the court of Queen Anne, the last of the Stuart monarchs, and offers lashings of lust, intrigue and deceit.

A starry cast is led by Olivia Colman as Queen Anne with Rachel Weisz as Lady Sarah Churchill, her friend and lover and the power behind the throne, and Emma Stone whose arrival throws the power balance into disarray.

Pitch-perfect performances and razor-sharp dialogue make this a hugely entertaining tragicomedy which is at times both uproariously funny and very moving.

Cleverly Everly was formed by BBC Points West correspondent Clinton Rogers and his brother Stan, “to pay homage to one of the greatest musical duos in pop history”

In the seven years since it was established the band has played to packed houses across the South West.

As well as recreating the fabulous sounds of the Everlys, the band also delves deep into the rich musical archive of the 60s, playing numbers from artists such as Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Dusty Springfield and The Shadows.

Cleverly Everly also features Stan’s wife Uta and lead guitarist Steve Craig.

Clint says: “Our aim is to stir memories, to give people a great time and leave them with a smile on their face.  It is a musical trip down memory lane.”

By Ian Hislop & Nick Newman

Presented by The Barnstormers

A fading Hollywood star is sent, by his manager, to star in a production of King Lear in Stratford.
What his manager fails to tell him is that it is not at Stratford upon Avon but at Stratford St John in Suffolk with a bunch of amateurs. He is not best pleased by this. Things are complicated by the arrival of his daughter, from one of his previous marriages, who he is supposed to be taking care of whilst his ex gets remarried. The players are hoping that their ‘star’ will help them save their theatre from the developers but loyalties and egos are tested during difficult rehearsals and trying outside influences.

Does it all ends happily?
