Dance - LORE Tuesday 05 March 2024
Venue:  Theatre Royal     map

Telephone:  Box office: 01962 840440
Event:  Dance - LORE - 7.30pm - LORE is the new production from award-winning dance company James Wilton Dance. It's a folklore inspired journey into a pagan world of gods, demons and humans, all embodied through otherworldly athleticism. LORE is about connection to nature, making you feel the energy that flows from the ground, through our bodies and back into the earth. The specially composed soundtrack by Michal Wojtas, who draws influence from Viking, Celtic and Slavic folk music, is like listening to the tales our ancestors told while sat in a clearing in the woods, and hearing the ancient stories that bind humanity together.

Hurn Court Opera Mozart's Don Giovanni Thursday 11 April 2024
Venue:  Theatre Royal     map
Address:  Jewry Street, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 8SB
Telephone:  Box office: 01962 840440
Event:  Hurn Court Opera Mozart's Don Giovanni - 7pm - Mozart's enduring masterpiece sets beauty and wit alongside menace and debauchery in this vivid re-telling of the eternal Don Juan tale. Through the arc of a single night, the opera tracks Don Giovanni as he seduces and manipulates without conscience, leaving rejected conquests and vengeful victims in his wake. Mozart's sublime music and glorious arias, in contrast, capture the humanity and strength of those he harms. Set in the seemingly glamorous world of the early 21st-century film industry, this production addresses issues that remain as relevant today as in Mozart's time. A cast of emerging young opera stars with the Hurn Court Opera orchestra bring the contrasting facets of this dark tale sharply to life as the libertine Don charts a fatal course to destruction.

New Sussex Opera The Dragon of Wantley Sunday 28 April 2024
Venue:  Theatre Royal     map
Address:  Jewry Street, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 8SB
Telephone:  Box office: 01962 840440
Event:  New Sussex Opera The Dragon of Wantley - 4pm - The Dragon of Wantley - Lampe's 1737 smash hit: a Yorkshire legend, a send up of Italian opera seria, with earthy satire, razor wit and delightful music in the style of Handel. A dragon is terrorising the Yorkshire countryside, devouring anything it meets. The only person who can save the locals is a drunken squire - if he can put down his pint. He agrees, but just as daunting as his monstrous opponent is the love triangle that ensues. Will the dragon prevail? And who will get their man? The Dragon of Wantley, the 1737 smash hit of the London season, parodies Handel's serious operas - as well as poking fun at the government of the day. The combination of Lampe's first-rate music (of which Handel himself approved) and wonderfully witty libretto by Henry Carey makes this opera a comic gem. Don't miss the rare chance to see this masterpiece of English comic opera performed with a traditional period orchestra as New Sussex Opera sets the opera in a South Yorkshire of the 1980's (against the background of the miner's strike). The recent recording of The Dragon of Wantley from the Brook Street Band and conductor John Andrews won BBC Music Magazine 2023 Award in Opera.

They promise they have.
