<![CDATA[Medea]]> Belgrade Main stage 0.00000000 0.00000000 Warwick Classics Society presents Medea

Medea Warwick Classics Society presents *Medea*. Known to many as the most tragic piece of ancient Greek theatre, Euripides’ Medea explores love, loss, betrayal, and the consequential revenge of its eponymous heroine, Medea. Medea, deeply in love with Jason, has abandoned her family and native land of Colchis and moved with him to Greece - with no possibility of return. When the play opens, Jason has broken his vows of loyalty and love to her and has instead turned to marry the King of Corinth’s daughter. These events spark a rage within Medea, and although others attempt to calm her anger, her heart does not waver: she must avenge this shattered promise. Director: Asha Martin Producer: Gabrielle Leadbeater Academic Consultant and Scenic Designer: Dr Emmanuela Bakola Music composer and director: Kirk Hastings ]]>

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.
