Wheeldon WITHIN THE GOLDEN HOUR / Cherkaoui WORLD PREMIERE
Pite FLIGHT PATTERN
Choreography: Christopher Wheeldon / Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui / Crystal Pite
Music: Ezio Bosso / TBC / Henryk Mikolaj Górecki
LIVE: Thursday 16 May 2019 [7.15pm] Note start time.
Approximate running time: 195 minutes including two intervals

Two recent works and one world premiere showcase the contemporary face of The Royal Ballet.
The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today’s leading choreographers. Christopher Wheeldon’s Within the Golden Hour is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset. Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration. Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created at The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary performance truly up-to-date.

CHANCE ENCOUNTER (FILM)

Saturday, 18th May 2019 - 3:45pm

TICKETS: Audiences are invited just to come and see the film and learn more about the charity (£8 adults, to include free drink); or to travel in style to the event by train from Bishops Lydeard on the specially commissioned ‘Quantock Belle’. Tickets for this package start at £35 and include a range of dining options plus a luxury cream tea on the way back!
£8 tickets to see the film only are available from the Regal Box Office as normal; tickets for the train package are available only from www.chanceencounterfilm.co.uk from 1st February.

This is a chance to see the premiere of a local film made in aid of Hope for Tomorrow. The short film (approx 50 mins), shot on location on the West Somerset Railway, features local actors and recreates a journey on the ‘Devon and Somerset Railway’ that used to run between Taunton and Barnstaple before it was closed in 1966. Set in the late 1950s, it is a gentle love story about a young couple who meet on the train one summer. It recreates the journey as exactly as possible, by using drone footage of some of the scenery travellers would really have seen out of the train windows at the time. It is unashamedly nostalgic; come and feel transported back to a different time where guards held trains back for late passengers, and going through a tunnel was somewhat exciting!

Dir Chris Foggin      UK 2019        112 mins

A fast-living, cynical London music executive (played by Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty-singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy).

The ultimate ‘fish out of water’, he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families (including Tuppence Middleton), who value friendship and community over fame and fortune, forcing him to re-evaluate his own way of life and ultimately question what success really means.

The Birth of a Legend – A Waterfront Production by Fred Owen

The final battle of Camlann is over and Arthur lies dying of his mortal wounds at the Abbey of Glastonbury. The civil war has been costly and nobody’s really sure  who has won. The family are gathering like carrion though, each with their own agenda. Into the maelstrom stumbles Amergin; a travelling bard and his sister Rhiannon.
Outside, the civil war is over, but inside the walls of the abbey it’s just beginning. Will the illicit lovers Guinevere and Bedywyr  succeed in turning Arthur into a Christian martyr to ease the pain caused by their part in his downfall, or will his sister Morgan succeed in claiming him for the old gods? Of course, she has many a trick up her sleeve, but there are also a few surprises that even she hadn’t bargained for.

MacMillan ROMEO AND JULIET

Tuesday, 11th June 2019 - 7:15pm

TICKETS: Adults £15.00, Film Society Members & Friends of the Regal £12.50, Students £10.00. 

The Royal Ballet
MacMillan ROMEO AND JULIET
Choreography: Kenneth MacMillan | Music: Sergei Prokofiev
LIVE: Tuesday 11 June 2019 [7.15pm] Note start time
Approximate running time: 195 minutes including two intervals

Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The  choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end.
Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.
