Royal Opera House
Royal Ballet - The Winter's Tale (2014)

STREAMING FOR FREE FROM 1 -31 May Christopher Wheeldon, Artistic Associate of The Royal Ballet, created his adaptation of Shakespeare’s late great romance The Winter’s Tale for The Royal Ballet in 2014. Building on the success of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The Winter’s Tale received ecstatic praise at its premiere, acclaimed by critics and audiences alike for its intelligent, distinctive and emotionally powerful story, told through exquisite dance. It is now widely judged to be a modern ballet classic.The story follows the destruction of a marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet, through remorse and regret – and after a seemingly miraculous return to life – the ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation. With powerful designs by Bob Crowley and atmospheric music by Joby Talbot, The Winter’s Tale is a masterful modern narrative ballet.

As The Crow Flies

Alfie keeps hiding Beth’s gardening gloves. She’s got lots to do and it’s just not funny anymore. Why won’t he realise that gardening is helping her forget everything? Why can’t he see she’s still not over her divorce? Why can’t he just be nice? Based on a true story of a woman who struck up an unlikely friendship with a wounded crow, this new play featured live music, original songs, witty drama – and a crow called Alfie. A heart-warming story of friendship, healing and kindness from Hattie Naylor, Olivier Award nominee and adapter of Radio 4’s The Diary of Samuel Pepys. Two actors performed Beth and Alfie’s unusual story, accompanied by live music composed especially for this play by Dom Coyote. A funny, moving and timeless story of our endless fascination with birds – especially clever, tricksy, knowing birds like Alfie.

Wolves Are Coming For You by Joel Horwood

And how will we all get to line-dancing in the village hall? Set over one extraordinary day in an ordinary village, Wolves Are Coming For You explores just how much wild we're comfortable with.

Scottish Ballet
The Fairy's Kiss

THURSDAY 18 JUNE, 2.30pm Arts [email protected] A curated bi – monthly series of performance work to enjoy at home, but experience collectively with others, joining together for a shared post show chat or response. Sit back, watch a matinee performance and join in the conversation after the show. The Fairy’s Kiss - a gorgeous one-act Sir Kenneth MacMillan ballet .The ballet is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale 'The Ice Maiden', and was composed by Stravinsky in 1928. It’s quite a unique production because MacMillan’s original 1960 version for the Royal Opera House only ever had 33 performances. The last of which was in 1986. This is due to the fact that for a one-act ballet, it was too large to perform. The Fairy’s Kiss requires a full orchestra, a full company, and the original production also required a considerably large set. That made it difficult, near impossible, to perform any other works alongside it on the same evening. Thanks to an ingenious new design by Gary Harris, Scottish Ballet was able to revive the production in 2017 and capture it for online audiences. Beth Kingsley-Garner stars in one of the lead roles of this production. Email [email protected] to receive an invitation to the live post show conversation with Beth. Which will take place directly after the performance at 3.30pm

Each Slow Dusk by Rory Mullarky

The Private misses the farm. The Captain dreams of painting. The Corporal relishes the fight. And a hundred years later, The Woman seeks to understand. A startling play about action, humanity, and the legacy of war. This astonishing production immersed audiences in the reality of conflict in vivid, thrilling detail. It gave you a fresh way of thinking about war - from the soldier’s perspective then, and the women’s perspective now. You’ll never walk past a war memorial in the same way again. Rory Mullarkey is a winner of the Harold Pinter and George Devine Awards, and has been commissioned by the Royal Court and National Theatre. Each Slow Dusk was live-streamed around the globe on Friday 21 November 2014 from The Palace Community Centre in Ibstock, Leicestershire, via our friends at the Royal Court Theatre. This was the first ever broadcast of a performance taking place in a village hall to the world.
