Premiere of the Opera Tosca – A dramatic masterpiece where love and, politics collide and murder takes place at the highest level.

Music by G.Puccini
Libretto by G.Giacosa and L.Illica
Sung in Italian with English Surtitles
Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians

‘By far the best company to bring Russian ballet to British audiences’ Stage Talk Magazine

Tosca is set in Rome in 1800. It was a very unsettling time for the Italians due to political turmoil. Tosca, the beautiful singer and Cavaradossi’s lover is tricked by Scarpia to go to Cavaradossi’s house so Scarpia’s minors can follow her there. Scarpia soon learns that the police cannot find Angelotti (one of the republicans, that escaped prison) but that they have arrested Cavaradossi. In order to seduce Tosca, Scarpia tortures Cavaradossi...

Tosca is one of the iconic operas of all times. There are three famous arias, ‘Recondita armonia (Hidden harmony), Vissi d’arte, vissi d’amore (I live for art, I lived for love) and ‘E lucevan le stele’ (And the stars shone).

The duet of Tosca and Scarpia is the most powerful and breath taking scene.

If you’ve never seen opera before, you will love this full orchestra experience with fantastic colourful costumes, exquisite singing and wonderful tunes that the audience will still be humming on their way home, making this a must-see opera production for everyone.

The Blues Band
Thursday 26th October 2017, 7:30pm
All Tickets £22.50*

The individual members of The Blues Band were already held in admiration by generations of rhythm & blues fans when they formed back in 1979. Almost two and a half decades and over 16 albums later they continue to add to their growing army of followers, and it’s not unheard of to find three generations from the same family at a gig.

The band is today acknowledged throughout Europe and beyond as being amongst the very finest purveyors of rhythm & blues. They have inspired numerous other blues bands, many of which have come and gone …The Blues Band have remained a constant, increasingly popular fixture, however, and all with only a modicum of help from the record business – as Gary’s oft quoted comment states "the music industry doesn’t bother us and we don’t bother them."

This independent streak goes right back to their early days when in an unusual move the band "bootlegged" their own first album – certain copies of which are now collector’s items. The ‘bootlegging’ came about because, having recorded their first album, the so called ‘major label’ which was to release it changed their minds and the band didn’t have the cash to pay the studio bill. So they got 1000 copies pressed up, mastered from a copy tape that they had, signed the plain white numbered sleeves and sold them at gigs & via mail order. Only then did another ‘major label’ pick up the album and release it widely.

It’s a credit to both the band’s talent and to their many thousands of fans’ loyalty and support that they have since sustained such a long career, and brings into question the oft-spoken phrase by parents despairing of their aspiring musical offspring, "When are you going to get yourself a proper job?"

Such successful musical mavericks are fairly rare and are borne more from word-of-mouth than promotional hype. Either way they still have to cut the mustard. These boys have real feel – for their music, for their audience and for each other. Playing with maturity and passion is second nature to all of them. Paul Jones has devoted much of a creative career spanning almost 40 years to this eternal, inspiring form - the very base and roots of rock & roll... Dave Kelly, with his late, great sister, Jo-Ann, introduced a whole generation to the works of Memphis Minnie, Son House, Robert Johnson and Mississippi Fred McDowell… the blues bit Tom McGuinness in the late '50s and has never let go - the same sharp, tight grip which still holds Rob Townsend and Gary Fletcher within its spell. So here they are, as enthusiastic as ever - Britain's finest, most skilled practitioners in the art of the blues. The Blues Band.

As Shalamar, Howard Hewitt and Jeffrey Daniel sold over 25 million records worldwide and collected no less than 100 gold, silver and platinum awards.

The Wanna Dance Tour

Following on from a 2016 that saw him beat both Beyoncé and Drake to a Number 1 Album in his native Ireland, Country-Pop crossover star Nathan Carter has announced a huge run of UK tour dates for 2017.

As one of Ireland’s biggest live music acts, Nathan is developing into a household name, with tracks from “Stayin’ Up All Night” becoming hits, such as “Wagon Wheel” and “I Wanna Dance”. Enthralling audiences up and down the country, Nathan has firmly become a firm favourite for audiences of all ages.

Growing up in a house where Country and Western music filled the air, Nathan was exposed to classic songs of Johnny Cash, Don Williams and Dolly Parton. From the tender age of 4 years old, not only learning to play guitar, piano and accordion, which plays a vital part in his live show, Nathan quickly became head chorister in the Liverpool Boys choir where he toured the world and even performed in front of the Pope in Rome.
