Verdi’s MACBETH – Scottish Opera
Sep 27 @ 19:30 – 22:15

 

Macbeth Portrait“A living breathing Goya painting, drenched in blood, mud and dust….prepare to be haunted” AcrosstheArts.com, 2014


Dominic Hill, Artistic director of the Citizens Theatre, revives his brooding, atmospheric Macbeth in celebration of the 2014 Year o Homecoming. Inspired by events in the war-torn Balkans, Hill’s production is at once contemporary and ageless; a world of camouflage-clad leaders and grungy, chain-smoking witches, where power is all but it comes at a price.


Unsettling and full of tension, the drama of Shakespeare’s play is underlined by the brilliance of Verdi’s score. Desperate and furious, at times ethereal and visionary, his music gets to the heart of this powerful story, intensifying the tragedy as Macbeth’s destiny unfolds.

Apex Productions presents Avenue Q

AVENUE Q is not the most upmarket of New York streets, and is about as far away from Park Avenue as you can get, but it is home to some lively and off the wall characters performed by an unholy comedic alliance of humans and puppets! 

Princeton, a bright-eyed college graduate, has just moved to this neighbourhood as he desperately tries to follow his dreams and discover his ever-elusive purpose in life. A tiny bank balance, the distraction of a busty blonde and a variety of weird and wonderful friends and neighbours lead Princeton on a hilarious story of self-discovery.

AVENUE Q was the winner of the 2004 Tony Award® for Best New Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score!

White Christmas – Broughty Ferry Amateur Operatic Society @ Gardyne Theatre
Nov 25 @ 19:30 – Nov 29 @ 22:00

White Xmas

Broughty Ferry Amateur Operatic Society are well known for the excellence of their productions and patrons are guaranteed a most entertaining evening of song and dance produced by live performers on stage, backed by a full orchestra in the pit, an increasingly rare sight these days.

The song “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” must be one of the very few songs dating as far back as 1940 with which most of today’s primary school children will be familiar.  Older generations will associate it most probably with the 1954 film White Christmas starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye and Rosemary Clooney (yes, George’s aunt!), although it also appeared in the 1942 film Holiday Inn.

But the film is no one-song wonder.  The genius of Irving Berlin also produced “Happy Holiday”, “How Deep Is The Ocean”, “I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm”, “Blue Skies” and many others, ensuring that audiences will come out not knowing which of the many tunes to hum on their way home, something that can’t be said of many more modern musicals.
