Mark Anthony presents <b>Unforgettable - A Tribute To Nat King Cole</b> to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of a legend. This tribute show explores the music of a true genius and a unique entertainer with a career spanning from 1939 to 1962. Born in Alabama in 1919, Nat King Cole reigns among a very short list of music royalty as one of the most identifiable and most memorable voices in American music. In 1942, Cole was one of the first artists to sign with Capitol Records, and he recorded nearly 700 songs for the label, becoming the first Number One artist on Billboard‘s first album chart. During his 30-year recording career, Cole recorded more than 150 charting singles on Billboard‘s Pop, R&B and Country charts, a staggering record that remains unbroken by any other artist ever signed to Capitol Records, which led to the label being affectionately tagged, The House That Nat Built. From <i>Mona Lisa</i> to <i>Unforgettable</i>, Nat King Cole’s songs are incomparable and his catalogue continues to sell in excess of one million albums per year around the world. Singer Mark Anthony presents this stunning tribute to the music and songs of Nat King Cole supported by his quartet of fabulous musicians AND the sensational Oakwood string quartet recreating the mood of the 1950's Cotton Club. Book now for a truly ‘unforgettable’ evening. Running time: 1 hour 50 minutes plus interval. Please note: If you want to dance, book a seat in the stalls. If you want to stay seated, book a seat in the circle where the rake is too steep for us to allow dancing. More details can be found on the Extra Info tab. ]]>

La Traviata The Russian State Opera presents *La Traviata* – one of Verdi’s greatest Operas. Sung in Italian with English surtitles. "A boon to the opera in regional theatres." The Stage Featuring an impressive cast accompanied by a live orchestra with over thirty musicians. After last year’s successful season of _Madame Butterfly_ and _Tosca_, Russian State Opera returns with *La Traviata* in another world-class production guaranteed to delight you with sumptuous sets and splendid new costumes. *La Traviata* – a tragic love story epitomised by sacrifice of a woman condemned by misunderstanding. This haunting tragedy, with its beautiful arias and unforgettable chorus pieces, will transport you into the exclusive demi-monde of French aristocracy in the 1850s. Giuseppe Verdi brings the beguiling splendour and gaiety of mid-19th century Parisian life to the stage. But beyond the revelry and hedonism lurks heartbreak and pathos in this tragic and resonant morality tale in which Violetta, a high-society courtesan with a heart of gold, sacrifices everything for the man she loves. *La Traviata*, Verdi’s undisputed masterpiece, contains some of his most beautiful and memorable music. The score encompasses an astonishing range of moods and emotions, from Alfredo’s aristocratic charms to Violetta’s vivid sparkle, perfectly captured in Libiamo ne' lieti calici – (Drink from the joyful cup) in which they toast life and free will. A deeply moving opera overflowing with emotion and containing moments of pure genius, *La Traviata* is an unforgettable, powerful experience.

Swan Lake The Russian State Ballet and Opera House presents *Swan Lake* – a timeless ballet with exquisite dancing. Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky and featuring a live Orchestra with over 30 musicians. After sell-out performances last year, the Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for its annual UK tour with a spellbinding, lavish, full-production touring ballet. One hundred and thirty-five years ago audiences heard *Swan Lake* by the great Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky for the very first time. From that moment on, the world of ballet would never be the same. *Swan Lake* is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so strikingly that one can easily be mistaken for the other. It is the compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, is turned into a swan by an evil curse. Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful young woman he is instantly captivated – will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under? From the opulent splendour of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where majestic swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. *Swan Lake* captures, like no other ballet, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy. A wonderful evening out, the memories of which you will cherish long after the final curtain falls.
