SCREENING | GLYNDEBOURNE: VANESSA | TUESDAY 14 AUGUST

Samuel Barber’s Vanessa broadcast live from Glyndebourne

Glyndebourne_2018_VANESSA_Landscape_[TEXTLESS] (1)

 

A rare opportunity to see Barber’s Pulitzer Prize-winning work – opera from the age of Hitchcock, with an atmospheric score and tense, psychological twists.

Abandoned by her lover Anatol, Vanessa retreats from the world, waiting and hoping with only her mother and her niece Erika for company. But when, 20 years later, Anatol’s handsome young son arrives unexpectedly, he shatters the calm of this shuttered household of women. Past and present love collides, and the aftershocks threaten to destroy them all.

 

An operatic thriller from the age of Hitchcock, Samuel Barber’s Pulitzer Prize-winning first opera boasts one of the 20th century’s most beautiful scores. Poised constantly on the edge of song, Vanessa unfolds in generous swathes of melody, rich in filmic strings and soaring brass, with echoes of Puccini, Berg and Strauss. It climaxes in a final quintet of Mozartean poignancy – one of the great ensembles of the contemporary repertoire.

 

Seldom performed in the UK, this is a rare opportunity to see Barber’s heart-breaking domestic drama. Olivier Award-winning director Keith Warner makes his much-anticipated Glyndebourne debut with this production, which promises to bring out the psychological tensions that sit just below the surface of this charged work.

 

Sung in English with English subtitles. Broadcast live from Glyndebourne.

SCREENING | EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE | FRIDAY 17 AUGUST

‘This fizzling musical is a blast of fresh air’ ~ The Times 

 

Jamie New is sixteen and lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie doesn’t quite fit in. Jamie is terrified about the future. He is going to be a sensation. Supported by his brilliant loving mum and surrounded by his friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness, into the spotlight.

Once upon a time, there was a 16-year-old boy who had a secret he wanted to tell…

So, he approached a documentary filmmaker as you do, and asked if they would help him tell it. The resulting documentary was seen by a theatre director and it inspired him to create a musical. A producing regional theatre backed him. He then bumped into a famous musical theatre star who introduced him to a well-known pop composer who was working with a lyricist and book writer. The theatre put on the production. A major producer saw it and offered them a West End theatre.

The play was Winner of 3 WhatsOnStage Awards including Best New Musical and nominated for 5 Olivier Awards.

MUSIC | THE CUBAN BROTHERS | FRIDAY 24 AUGUST

Music and comedy from the festival favourites

 

The Cuban Brothers’ unrivalled funk soul review blends soulful music with b-boy action and riotous comedy. From humble beginnings, Miguel Mantovani, Archerio Mantovani, Kengo Sanand Domenico have built Los Hermanos Cubanos – The Cuban Brothers – into a legendary outfit that continuously sells out shows across the globe. Mike Keat (Miguel) started The Cuban Brothers after ‘watching dance music disappear’ in the mid to late 90s. His love of b-boying, Latin music and character comedy inspired him to create an irreverent music-driven show to help him showcase his burgeoning talents as a singer, MC and dancer. After enrolling Archie ‘Archerio’ Easton (a former champion b-boy and ex-Prodigy dancer), Kengo ‘Kengo San’ Oshima (a dance student and earnest wrong-man) and most recently Domenico, the four-piece has blurred historic fact and hilarious fiction with the three elements of entertainment –music, comedy and dancing –journeying on an endless foray into fun and funky action.

Not only the entertainment of choice for Elton John, Richard Branson and Robbie Williams, the band has also supported James Brown, Chuck Berry, Fatboy Slim, De La Soul, Talib Kweli,and performed with the likes of The Prodigy, Q-Tip, Chic, Roy Ayers and Jocelyn Brown, as well as touring the world in their own right. Their residency at Rob da Bank’s celebrated Sunday Best parties led to the band hosting the main stage at Bestival, with their delirious rhythms, lightning wit, and gentle ribbing of world famous artists, plus a lot of inappropriate touching, endearing them to a constant stream of new fans. Taking the contagious dynamic of their live show into the studio the band’s debut album ‘Yo Bonita!’ features guest vocals from Mica Paris, Omar Kurtis Blow, Jungle Brother Mike Gee, Yolanda Quartey (Massive Attack) and KT Tunstall.
