This production of The Sleeping Beauty has been delighting audiences in Covent Garden since 1946. A classic of Russian ballet, it established The Royal Ballet both in its new home after World War II and as a world-class company. Sixty years later, in 2006, the original staging was revived, returning Oliver Messel’s wonderful designs and glittering costumes to the stage. Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score and Marius Petipa’s original choreography beautifully combine with sections created for The Royal Ballet by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon. This ballet is sure to cast its spell over anyone who sees it. Tickets: £18.50, Concessions: £16.50, Child (under 16): £10

SPECIAL PREVIEW The Regent is delighted to welcome the Dodge Brothers and Neil Brand back for a special preview screening of their new live musical accompaniment of the silent movie: City Girl. A lushly romantic drama directed by F.W. Murnau – one of the most celebrated figures of the silent film era. Best-known for Nosferatu and Sunrise, Murnau’s last Hollywood film before his early death in 1931 is this cautionary tale about the clash between city and urban life. Tall, dark, handsome star Charles Farrell plays Lem, a farmer’s son who travels to the Big City, where he falls in love with Mary Duncan’s disenchanted waitress, Kate. Lem brings his new gal home to meet the folks, but his dominating dad (David Torrence) and the pack of leering farmhands put the young couple’s love to the test. Evoking the surreal dreaminess of German Expressionism and bringing to mind the ravishing beauty of Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven this is an overlooked masterpiece of the late silent era, deserving a new audience. With a line-up featuring Mike Hammond (lead guitar, banjo), broadcaster and film critic Mark Kermode (bass, harmonica), Aly Hirji (rhythm guitar, mandolin) and Alex Hammond (percussion), they are joined by fifth Dodge Brother Neil Brand for this preview screening!

Beethoven’s only opera is a masterpiece, an uplifting story of risk and triumph. In this new production, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Jonas Kaufmann plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen his wife Leonore (disguised as ‘Fidelio’) who daringly sets out to rescue him. Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime. The music is transcendent throughout and includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners’ Chorus and Florestan’s impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope. Tobias Kratzer’s new staging brings together the dark reality of the French Revolutionary ‘Terror’ and our own time to illuminate Fidelio’s inspiring message of shared humanity.

"...one of the most enjoyable nights at the opera I have ever experienced." Bournemouth Echo [Magic Flute at Regent Centre in 2019] Mozart’s bittersweet comic opera is a masterpiece about love, loyalty and the battle of the sexes. Sisters Dorabella and Fiordiligi are revelling in a double romance with two young soldiers. But a wager that women can never be faithful sets in motion a spiral of temptation, disguise and deception. As the intrigue unfolds, Hurn Court Opera’s cast of rising young operatic stars, supported by a professional orchestra, will carry you through a sublime evening of al fresco serenades, vocal fireworks and volcanic emotions with music that is perhaps the most radiant ever written by Mozart.

The Count of Cornwall is back by popular demand! Following last year's sell out show, Jethro brings us another memorable evening of hysterical nonsense as we take a peek into the circus lurking deep within the mind of probably the greatest comic storyteller ever to grace the stage. Jethro beguiles and befuddles his audience with the endless stream of irreverent twaddle and slight mispronunication of the word 'count' that has created a comedy genius. Over 4 million DVD sales pay testament to the legion of fans who have followed Jethro faithfully throughout his career. Now, with stories old and new we would contend that this is Jethro at his very best!

Dante’s Divine Comedy is an epic journey through the afterlife: it encompasses the horrifying drama of Inferno and its damned, the lyrical mysticism of pilgrims on mount Purgatorio and the dazzling spheres of Paradiso with their endless configurations of light. The poem was inspired by the agony of Dante’s own exile, and traces his path from crisis to revelation guided by his literary hero Virgil and his lost love Beatrice. In this new work, The Royal Ballet’s trailblazing Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor collaborates with an award-winning team – contemporary composer Thomas Adès, artist Tacita Dean, lighting designer Lucy Carter and dramaturg Uzma Hameed – to bring us closer to Dante and his extraordinary vision.

Who could have predicted that a band, which hit the top of the charts 50 years ago in 1961 with hits in the 20’s style that was already forty years out of date, would still be around and still playing the same style of music? The main difference now is that the band has a vast tuneful foot tapping repertoire…. jazz classics from the past, original compositions, novelty numbers …. and as they play for you, their enormous enjoyment is hilariously transmitted to their audiences with their zany pythonesque humour.

BORIS GODUNOV by Modest Mussorgsky - New Production Sung in an English translation with surtitles Runtime: 180 minutes including interval Coade Hall Theatre, Bryanston, Blandford Forum DT11 0PX With the chorus being the main protagonist in Boris Godunov, this great Russian epic with its roots based in historical fact, has been ‘edited’ by such musical luminaries as Rimsky-Korsakov and Shostakovich. Nowadays, it is widely accepted that Mussorgsky’s unusual and original scoring should be observed. The 1869 version of the opera, tells of events after the death of the tyrant, Tsar Ivan IV (Ivan the Terrible), whose rule left the people of Russia cowed, poor and ‘ruled by despots and dictators...’ In his desire to become Tsar himself, it is widely accepted that Boris was responsible for the ‘removal’ (presumably, death) of Ivan’s eldest son, but no one really knows what happened to his second child - although a Pretender to the throne did come forward. In the end, wracked with grief over what he has done, Boris Godunov gives us one of the greatest death scenes in all opera. The Dorset Opera Festival - in its 47th year - is the only organisation in the South West offering live grand opera in a Country House setting. It features internationally renowned soloists, a chorus of up to 80, and a full orchestra. It also offers a large marquee bar and you can purchase stand-alone picnic pavilions seating up to 10, individual picnic hampers, a 4-course dinner on 23, 24 & 25 July and full afternoon tea at the matinees on 23 & 25 July.

Set in Paris, it tells the story of the beautiful ‘courtesan’, Magda, who is hosting a party for a few close friends. Her guests include a surprise visitor, Ruggero. Naturally, as with all Puccini operas, the two fall in love. They begin life together on the Riviera, but Magda is troubled by the thought of Ruggero, or his family, discovering her past life. Rather like Verdi’s Violetta and going against her ardent desires for the sake of Ruggero’s family name, she opts to return to Paris to the arms of her old admirer.
