THE ODD COUPLE (Female Version)

By Neil Simon. Presented by Contrast Theatre Company

Even the best of friends can make the worst of roommates. Neil Simon’s mismatched couple is butting heads again in this gender twist on his mega-popular 1965 comedy.  It’s now the ’80s as messy Olive Madison and neat freak Florence Unger come to live together following their respective failed marriages.

But it’s a hilariously challenged pairing as these two, with the help of a circle of Trivial Pursuit-playing friends and a pair of handsome Spanish neighbours, survive three weeks as the most mismatched roommates of all time.

SEMELE

Mid Wales Opera and The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama present a co-production of Seleme, Handel’s masterpiece of baroque opera.
In association with The Academy of Ancient Music

Music G. F. Handel, Libretto William Congreve after Ovid. Musical Director - Nicholas Cleobury, Artistic Director Martin Constantine

First performed in 1744 at Covent Garden, Handel’s Semele originally appeared as an Oratorio rather than an opera – and instantly caused a stir. The production used Congreve’s libretto based on Ovid’s Metamorphoses to bring to life the tragic tale of Semele’s ill-fated love for Jupiter the King of the Gods.

Featuring giant eagles, a dragon-guarded castle, thunder and lightning the Oratorio was a spectacular departure from Handel’s previous works and ran for only four nights. Revived only once in December 1744, Semele was never again performed in his lifetime and only brought back into repertoire by professional companies in the twentieth century – we believe this tour will be the debut professional production in Wales.

However, the work is undoubtedly one of the jewels of baroque opera. It contains the stunning tenor aria “Where e’er you walk” and Semele’s joyous “Endless Pleasure Endless Love.” As a farewell “swan song” Artistic Director Nicholas Cleobury is teaming up with internationally renowned director Martin Constantine to stage this musically and dramatically breath-taking work.

This production contains sexual content and some violence.Suitable for young adults and above. MWO recommend a minimum age of 14.

THE INNOCENTS (15)

Rialto Film Night

Language: French / Russian / Polish with English subtitles

Director: Anne Fontaine

Warsaw, December 1945: the Second World War is finally over and French Red Cross doctor Mathilde (Lou de Laage) is treating the last of the French survivors of the German camps. When a panicked Benedictine nun appears at the clinic begging Mathilde to follow her back to the convent, what she finds there is shocking: a holy sister about to give birth and several more in advanced stages of pregnancy. A non-believer, Mathilde enters the sisters’ fiercely private world, dictated by the rituals of their order and the strict Rev. Mother (Agata Kulesza, Ida).

Fearing the shame of exposure, the hostility of the occupying Soviet troops and local Polish communists and while facing an unprecedented crisis of faith, the nuns increasingly turn to Mathilde as their beliefs and traditions clash with harsh realities.

“ The Innocents…represents a welcome change: a war movie by women, about women.” ROGER EBERT ONLINE
