In August 2012 we will be screening our second Opera (Adriana Lecouvreur) from the Royal Opera House as part of our Curzon Arts season. Curzon Arts gives you the opportunity to see alternative content such as Opera & Ballet, screened at your local Cinema, Curzon Ivybridge, The Watermark.
Adriana Lecouvreur unites a stellar cast in a new production by David McVicar of an opera not seen at the Royal Opera House since 1906. Anyone who loves Puccini will find this opera by Francesco Cilea, a contemporary and fellow Italian, just as rich, melodious and romantic. Its title role has long been associated with star sopranos, and this production is no exception with Angela Gheorghiu singing opposite Jonas Kaufmann as Maurizio. The story of jealous rivalry in love is set between the two worlds of theatre and the aristocracy with the fictional version of the real and famous actress Adriana Lecouvreur’s life played out to its final and deadly conclusion.
Total Running Time excluding interval 151 minutes (there will be a 20 minute interval)
This summer, throughout August, we will be screening some of the best Children’s Films from throughout 2012. We’ve started the season off with a massive dose of The Muppets. We’ll be continuing every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday at 10.30AM.
Coming up we’ve got, Mirror Mirror, Judy Moody & The Not Bummer Summer, A Monster In Paris & Jouney 2.
Some great films to come and see over the holidays!
The piece is a classic, Agatha Christie’s very own ‘And Then There Were None’. Or were there? Just over 300 people turned out to see Ivybridge Theatre Company perform the classic.
Earlier this year we saw a brilliant and hilarious Snow White Pantomime, which could have been a very hard act to follow! But, they managed it. This summer they returned to their Murder Mystery roots, and did a fantastic job of portraying a range of characters on stage, Suspense, Murder and a little bit of Comedy, made for an entertaining evening for all. Interval breaks were full of ‘Whodunnit’ talks, and the final act was full of surprises for the audience! If you went to see it, did you guess correctly? Who did you think was the murderer?
Ivybridge Theatre Company are going from strength to strength and if you haven’t had the chance to come and see a performance by them yet, keep a look out, their next performance will be early next year and we will be bringing you the info as soon as we have it! Until then, you can follow / read / like them in a number of ways:
